Former UL Star Tracy Walker Ranks 3rd In NFL In Solo Tackles
Former Louisiana Ragin' Cajun defensive back Tracy Walker currently ranks in the top five in the NFL in solo tackles, following another solid game last Sunday.
Currently a member of the Detroit Lions, Walker recorded 6 tackles, all solo stops, in a 31-26 victory over the New York Giants.
Through seven games this season, Walker has compiled 56 tackles, including 49 solo stops, for an average of 8 tackles-per-game.
His 56 tackles rank Walker tied for 7th in the NFL among defensive backs, while his 49 solo stops rank him 3rd in the entire league, and first among defensive backs.
Even more impressive, the Lions have already had a bye week, meaning Walker has played one less game than all of those above him on the list.
Last season, Walker, who played for the Cajuns from 2014-2017, had a solid rookie campaign for Detroit, after being selected by the Lions in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft, compiling 21 tackles, to go along with an interception and two passes defended.
A native of Brunswick, Georgia, Walker compiled 97 tackles and two interceptions in 2017 as a senior at UL and finished his stellar collegiate career with 276 tackles and 8 interceptions over 50 games.
