Austin was in a ridiculous offense that played against some suspect defenses. I think a first rounder is rich for him and I do not see him falling to the second. If you pass on a guy like Austin, he will beat you for years to follow...unwritten rule. I know that Rivera has wanted a multipurpose player, skat back type athlete who can go Westbrook on you, but I am not certain that player is a first rounder. Still, you cannot forget about this guy and the potential he brings.

My questions: Have we done all we can do with Joe Adams? Pilares? I think we have to get out of the mindset that late round picks should instantly produce or we get rid of them. I think some players are developmental and need a year or two. I am really hoping Adams steps up, Pilares too. Gettis.

If Austin is not for us, I think Ace Sanders in the fourth could be a good move as well, even though I realize that Austin is much more dangerous and versatile.

SEC vs NBA or whatever conference they were in.

Y'know who's better? His teammate, Stedman Bailey.



I wouldnt complain if we picked Bailey up in the 2nd. He wont be around in the 4th. Wrote in another thread the only thing I worried about him was his speed and if he could stay healthy. The guy is a great route runner and great hands,.

Zero issues with his ability to stay healthy - he's a WR so he's not going to get banged by much bigger guys all that often.

He reminds me a lot of Smith - little undersized, but feisty as hell. I think he'll run a 4.5 at the Combine. If he runs a 4.4 he's a 2nd round pick.

He runs the best routes and has the best hands in the draft. He's not a burner, but he's quick enough. Very elusive too.

I'd happily take him in the 2nd.

Austin is definitely a game-changer. If we could trade down into the 20's and take him I'd be all for it. The problem with taking him in the top 10-15 is that he probably doesn't have the size to consistently beat the jam to be a #1 WR in the NFL. It's the reason players that he's being compared to, like Harvin (22nd pick), Jackson (2nd round), and Smitty (3rd round) didn't go that high despite their playmaking ability.

Everything I've seen says expect him to run around a 4.45 or so. Not going to put up chris johnson type numbers. With austin it's more about his elusiveness and acceleration. He's still fast but I don't expect him to be the fastest guy at the combine or anything. This tweet from todd mcshay says it all.

Tweet from Todd McShay



@McShay13: WVU WR/RS Tavon Austin might be the quickest human being I've ever studied on tape...

A lot of mocks have the Patriots taking him. As far as Austins 40 time it should be about 4.3 Bailey will do a 4.5

Austin would look great in the slot with Julio and Roddy.

Think we have too many defensive needs but if he drops to our 2nd and we don't take him i'll be livid.

Yes he can play running back too. Did it the last half the season last season. They wanted to get the ball in his hands as much as possible.


Best game of the season for him.




That is the most ridiculous thing i have ever seen in one game.
