Photo by Wesley Hitt/Getty ImagesOn Monday, the Lions made a change at the quarterback position, swapping out former Michigan State Spartan Connor Cook for David Fales, a journeyman who has spent time with the Bears, Ravens and Dolphins in just five years of NFL experience.While Detroit is doing their due diligence by raking the bottom of the depth chart at quarterback to find a developmental prospect, it seems like the team is perfectly content with veteran Tom Savage backing up Matthew Stafford.Which leads us to today’s “Question of the Day”:Are you concerned about the Lions backup quarterback position?My answer: Honestly, how could you be? When you have a specimen like Tom Savage, a guy with a stronger arm than Matthew Stafford, what is there possibly to worry about?But in reality, Bob Quinn stuck pretty close to his draft philosophy of bringing in new quarterbacks every year during the first two years of being the team’s general manager—selecting Jake Rudock in 2016 and Brad Kaaya in 2017.In these past two drafts Darius Slay Jersey , however, Quinn has passed on using a draft pick to select a quarterback, opting to go with a more veteran presence backing up Stafford. Last year it was Matt Cassel, this year it’s Tom Savage—someone who has some familiarity with Detroit’s new quarterbacks coach Sean Ryan.The last backup quarterback to elicit any sort of confidence in me if 9 wasn’t able to get under center was Shaun Hill, and that is a deep cut. While Stafford has been relatively healthy, gutting it out through a variety of injuries the past couple of years, Detroit has been pretty fortunate when it comes to the health of their quarterback. If Tom Savage is the guy the team has to look toward in the event of Stafford missing snaps, history doesn’t paint a pretty picture: Savage has just two wins in nine opportunities, throwing five touchdowns to seven interceptions.Your turn.Tweets from https://twitter.com/PrideOfDetroit/lists/lions-coverage Quandre Diggs is a pretty good hype man." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhitePride Of Detroita Detroit Lions communityLog In or Sign UpLog InSign UpFanpostsFanshotsSectionsLibraryLionsOddsAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 322 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Detroit Lions NewsDetroit Lions NotesDetroit Lions AnalysisDetroit Lions TransactionsDetroit Lions Game RecapsFiled under:Detroit Lions NewsDetroit Lions QuotesQuandre Diggs: Tracy Walker has ‘the total package’ to succeed New,14commentsQuandre Diggs is a pretty good hype man. EDTShareTweetShareShareQuandre Diggs: Tracy Walker has ‘the total package’ to succeed Kyle Terada-USA TODAY SportsQuandre Diggs may be taking on a bigger leadership role in 2019 after the Detroit Lions decided to move on from Glover Quin, but someone is going to have to replace his impact on the field, as well.The leading candidate after free agency and the draft is second-year safety Tracy Walker. That’s certainly how things were trending toward the end of last year:And it wasn’t just playing time that is working in Walker’s favor Sylvester Williams Jersey , it was his performance. Though he didn’t have enough snaps to qualify for Pro Football Focus’ official rankings among safeties, his overall grade of 89.8 would’ve been good enough for second in the entire NFL, and it was the highest grade for a rookie safety since 2006:Perhaps most importantly of all, however, is the support of his teammates. Diggs, who will likely be playing aside him in 2019, thinks Walker’s versatility and hunger for improvement makes him the “total package.”“You can just see the progress each and every week,” Diggs said on Tuesday. “Guy that wants to learn every day, loves to be around myself, loves to be around guys like Tavon (Wilson). Just tries to learn the ins and outs of being an NFL player. You can see the range, you can see how physical he is, you can see the coverability. You can see all of that http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authentic-matt-prater-jersey , and I think he’s got the total package to be a good player.” Walker doesn’t have a defined role with the team, necessarily, but that may not be a problem. Head coach Matt Patricia has been known to move players around all different parts of the secondary, and Walker was up to that task last year, taking snaps at the free safety position, box safety, and nickel corner, amongst others. That may be a lot to ask of a young safety, but with the right support system and a hunger to learn, 2019 could be a breakout year for Walker.
