His highlights against Oklahoma. You would think WVU would have won this game with his stats. Crappy Defense hurt this team last year.

Played most of the game at RB. Due to his athletism and Coach Holgerson trying to stop a 4 game losing streak.

I look at him as a slot receiver version of Darren Sproles

Tough pick. I understand both sides of getting a receiver receiver or Tavon a person that just makes plays

Allen is too slow for me. Just look at him run

He's 5'9... Not every short receiver is the next Steve smith. Let it go

I admittedly haven't watched much of Austin but his vision and ability cut is lethal in space and he makes so many people miss. If he can run crisp clean routes and get separation in the passing game and give us a new wrinkle in the running game and Sproles like production catching out of the backfield and in the slot then he would not be a bad option at 14 but it really depends who is on the board.

One question, would the drafting of Tavon make DeAngelo expendable? I feel like adding him to our roster would boost both our run and passing game and give defenses another thing to game plan for. I remember Rivera a season or two ago saying he wanted a scat-back Sproles time player and Austin could be that guy.

Personally I want a big deep threat receiver like Patterson or someone in the second but Austin could fly up draft charts in the next couple months.

Austin been healthy all his career. With that said I dont know if he could take the pounding of a RB in the NFL. I could see him coming in as a 3rd down back. But not a everydown back.

The man returned kicks for TD's and broke a few passes for TD's... he may not be the fastest out there, but he's extremely quick for his size

Do you know how fast Anquan Boldin is? He ran a 4.7 and Fitz ran a 4.6
