Tavon Austin

84 posts in this topic

WVU players have an unfortunate habit of not transitioning well to the NFL. Not all of them, mind you, but a fair number (enough to make it something you think about).

I suspect Austin will not have that problem, and I'd kill to see him as a Panther.

Honestly, I think he works best in a 3rd down back / return specialist kind of role. Similar to how the Browns used to use Eric Metcalf.

Referred to himself as the best player in the draft (link)

Overconfidence or does he have a case?

He has a Smitty attitude... He even compared himself to him. I have no problem with you saying your the best just as long as you go out and prove it on the field.

I wouldn't compare him to smitty in that regard. Tavon has always been quiet since he's been at wvu. Also I saw a journalist compare him to Steve smith but tavon usually says hes a mix of Percy harvin and welker from what I've seen

You could probably make a case for either but the reporter asked if he thought he was the best player at any position. I'd prefer a guy say what he said as opposed to "no I'm more of a 3rd best kind of guy." Now had he just come out and declared himself the best without being prompted that's a different story.

I might have been mistaken but I thought I saw an article about it....

    • This makes sense to a degree with one big BUT... It's clear we'll be changing up our offense quite a bit this season - both due to the need for "evolution" and because of all the new players on offense we have to integrate - especially CMC & Samuel.  So, Stew needs more reps than he would have needed last year just to get in a rhythm with the new guys... Otherwise what you write makes sense. 
    • Already admitted i was wrong saying that, what I meant to write was he never learned to do it in college and makes it much easier to fall back into old habits in the pros. Was going back and edit that before I posted the thread and just forgot. And yes, every QB is going to be inaccurate at times, Cam is more inaccurate than the other top ten QBs, He just is, that's not his game,  didn't see anyone complaining about in 15. He makes up for it in other ways. And, no offense meant, didn't see a whole lot of Cam blaming in your post, actually, didn't see any. It was all someone else's fault. Cam has more difficult throws than many QBs because he frequently passes up easy throws for more difficult ones.
