Draft Scout Walt Aikens News
10/19/15 - FS Walt Aikens, who lost his starting job to Michael Thomas, got plenty of playing time against the Titans. Aikens and guard Billy Turner are two players getting a second look, so to speak, from interim coach Dan Campbell. Expect to see Aikens rotated into games more frequently, especially in the nickel defense.
09/01/15 - FS Walt Aikens continues to get good reviews for his play in place of injured Louis Delmas (knee). Aikens had one tackle against Atlanta but coaches seem pleased with his overall play, including his ability to call signals.
08/20/15 - FS Walt Aikens, the second-year player from Liberty, will get the first shot at replacing FS Louis Delmas (knee). Aikens, a fourth-round pick, played sparingly last season but, according to coaches, had a good offseason. Aikens, who had an interception against Oakland last season, seemed more confident in training camp and has showed a nose for the football. He blocked a field-goal attempt in practice last week. If Aikens can't do the job, S Michael Thomas will probably get a look.
08/12/15 - SS Walt Aikens will likely get a long look Thursday at Chicago. Aikens has had a good training camp and will be a core special teams player. But he could find himself in the action in certain nickel and dime packages.
12/08/14 - S Walt Aikens, the rookie from Liberty, could be pressed into action in the nickel defense. With S Louis Delmas (knee) out for the season and S Jimmy Wilson likely taking his place, it's possible Aikens could play safety in the nickel while Wilson moves to his usual slot DB position.
