He did not run a 4.25. Not sure where you got that. He still ran fast but being fast doesn't make you a #14 overall pick. We'll let the Raiders take him.

His "unofficial" time was 4.25

Oh wow this WR hype again..I remember in 2010 when everyone was on the Mardy Gilyard bandwagon...

Some nincompoops were on his bandwagon, not "everyone".

This happens each year.

Look, let's draft the fast guy.

Cam can't throw to him while on his back. Trenches this year, trenches

Austin won't be picked in the first.

Newton needs a bigger target than that.

We need players that can win one on one battles and create mismatches.

Not saying Tavon is a can't miss prospect at #14 or anything but some of the people in this thread act like he was a nobody and just ran fast at the combine. His production was already there. His good performance is just cementing what draft pundits have been saying which is that he is a 1st round pick.

Here is this for all those just saying take Goodwin in a later round because he's just as fast as austin and can be had later. This by everyone's favorite mike mayock.

"In football pads, the good thing about Austin -- we don't know as much about Goodwin as a wideout -- I can tell you about Tavon Austin," Mayock told Rich Eisen. "You want to talk about one of the most electric players I've ever seen in college football. He put a

performance on against the University of Oklahoma

that was one of the most amazing I've ever seen. Over 500 yards of offense -- he played mostly tailback."

Said Mayock: "In the NFL, it's all about matchups, and this young man is a matchup nightmare. What I love about (Austin), he's got good hands. We already know he can run, we know how quick he is. I know he's tough. And he's a game-changer."

Charles Davis on Goodwin.

"(Austin) is a football player who runs like a track athlete," Davis said. "Marquise Goodwin, in my opinion, is a track athlete trying to play the game of football. And it's a different deal."

5'8 receiver? Not a chance we want to run a vertical passing game with Cam his height is not first round worthy not every short fast guy is SS.

His Vertical is only 32' a huge part of SS game is he plays bigger than he is because he has a 38-40 inch vertical.

If the Panthers don't take a WR in the 1st or 2nd this year I'll be very disappointed. Easily the most talented late 1st early 2nd group of WR's I've seen. Patterson is the only WR worthy of the #14 though.

I'd personally rather have Chance Warmack at 14 and Ryan Swope in the 2nd round.

For free agency I'm thinking Pat White and Noel Devine. Eh? Ehh? Who's with me?

Ryan Swope ran the same speed as Austin, is bigger, runs better routes, and is a good blocker...if we want a slot receiver he would be there in the 3rd if we trade down or something. Patton and Swope are my favorite receivers in the draft, hopefully we can get one of them.
