Short, stocky WR with great open field and return ability. Tough runner too.

Remind you of anyone?

Austin's a thug, just look at this photo of him taken a few months ago.

Seriously though, would love him if by some miracle of God he fell to our 2nd round pick.

I'm very high on this kid.... I like what I see from him. It's a possibility he goes late first round though...

I would not be against drafting him at 14.

Seriously.

I bet his stock rises from here until the draft (unless he does something incredibly stupid) and will be in mocks to us. Even though I hope we get help up front on both lines I'm with you on that

nice man might be lil prone to injury. has the same body and speed as desean jackson. i still think we need a jump ball guy like calvin since cam has such a high release point.

I love Austin and Stedman Bailey, never seen a QB with better timing than Geno and those 2. I see Austin as a Percey Harvin type back. I will tell you one thing about him and Bailey, those guys don't get tired. Many many games they were running just as hard in the 4th as they were in the 1st, and this was after hundreds of yards receiving and TDs. I'd love it if we can get Austin, or even Bailey.

Austin is the best after the catch prospect at WR. I like him bc he is that Percey Harvin/Smitty game breaker...I know we all get caught in the next Megatron-Andre Johnson but they are rare and require a top 2 pick..

As far as the injury point...he is built more solidly than Deshan Jackson. He explodes after his cuts like Smitty at his best. I think we do need a taller guy bc of Cams overthrows however..

I think he'll likely be somewhere between Reggie Bush and Smitty as far as potential goes... but dude has to be the most elusive, fastest accelerating prospect that has been out in a long long time...

He'll easily put up the fastest acceleration times in the 40, and probably will be one of the fastest overall, too...
