Lowest # of drops? Dude, he doesn't even get the ball thrown to him that often, because he struggles to get separation. That is one of the most meaningless stats you could have found to try and act like Walter is anything other then some coach favorite at this point. He'll be weeded out of this offense as the season goes on. It's inevitable.
You can go back and check the stats of the number of passes he had the last 3 years.
It's a good guess that he also had good hands in 2008.
He caught more balls in that time period than McCaffrey whom some of you guys thought to be really great.
And the first half of the Titans game I just broke down shows that Walter did get open. (And this happened in every of the 9 games I watched with the All-22 view and the end zone view).
He could have had at least 5 catches at the half easily.
