Tavon Austin is gonna be a great player, but Cam needs a big redzone target. He is already throwing to a receiver thats 5'9. Matt Ryan is a very accurate QB but he never has to be anything close to that because he has big targets all over the field. It would help if they gave Cam one to make his job easier, his passing TD numbers would go up too.

I would take the Luke approach to Tavon like i did last year, not totally agree with the pick but wouldn't be upset if we drafted him because i know he is gonna be good.

Far from just that.

He has an Eric Metcalf / Reggie Bush / Percy Harvin type skill set, meaning you can use him in multiple ways (receiver, runningback, return guy) as a difference maker.

He's projected by many to go 29th to the Patriots (higher in some spots). Were we to trade down, I'd be fine with him anywhere in the 20s.

agreed. i love multi-dimensional players like that. they always give defenses headaches if used properly and always have to be accounted for. always ties up extra defensive players and can really open things up for other players to add to just how effective they can be in multiple ways.

Exactly. I'd so love to get this guy along with Patterson or someone else, whether that's even remotely likely or not, we'd be set in WR's for years, after Smitty retires or is injured.

Don't think I'd want him over some other options in the draft, but I would definately love to have him

Fug it, I'd take him

an arguement could be made he needs someone to help move the chains more than a redzone target. Carolina has been one of the better redzone teams in the NFL under Cam. Getting there, often seems to be issue.

Smitty will be our tavon austin in the slot once we find a number 1 WR. i believe smitty could play as long as Gonzalez if we could move him to the slot

I don't know what team your talking about because I think it's the other way around. This team (special) early in the season has problems in the red Zone more then from 20 to 20. I think more then a few games where if we scored TD all the time we were in the red zone we would have won. Examples Seattle , Chicago, Dallas and the first Tampa Game.

Plain and simple when Cam is off he is off High. A bigger WR with a big catch radius is more help to CAM then another short Gimmick player that you have to make plays to give him the ball. We all screamed that Chud needed to get back to the Basics and stop trying to trick everybody with gimmick plays. Plus unless we are done with Adams and Pilaris we already have this type player on the roster and we didn't have to use a top 15 pick to get him.
