Tavon Austin

idk about tavon ....hes no jackson. hes more of a percy harvin type of guy.

which aint bad but i really like deep threat guy who can do both..

u noticed harvin and the welker types never have many tds........do slots ever go over 10 tds.... top tight ends have more of an impact then that in the redzone....

Welker does not score more than 6-7 tds..neither doew Steve Smith..but it has to be game planned for. There is a reason why Gronk had so many open looks...hi -lo options with a giant helps but you cannot forget that welker is always commanding eyes sometimes 2sets.

If you did not understand why Harvin was considered for MVp toward the end of the season you just dont watch him. He does a lot to get to the 5 yrd line where AP is getting in all respect.

i understand..........but on avg slots aint scoring that many tds(10+). on avg deep threats are.

yeah i can give you a few deep threats that didnt score alot like smith but i cant give you ANY slots that score more than 10 tds.

If they are questioning his long term durability then it doesnt sound like someone you take 14 overall, you always draft someone at the top of the draft with the hope of them being reliable for the long haul.

They said that cause he's small. Not cause he actually has durability concerns.

I know that, it means both. Still, its something you have to consider. He may not be able to hold up in the NFL compared to college.

He kind of reminds me of Michael Crabtree...just way shorter.

1. We barley used the weapons we have already.

It took a whole season to use Tolbert.

We never used Barniage or Adams like we could have.

You are just adding another gimmick to a team who has to many gimmicks already. We were better when we ran a traditional offense and ran the ball down hill.

2. I can see adding a bigger target for the red zone and the fact that when Cam misses a pass he misses High. Which would be perfect for a Bigger WR.

3. I could see him in the Pats offense taking Welker's role but hear we need a actually WR who can become a #1 outside WR. Austin is a slot WR. You don't spend a top 15 pick on a slot WR unless.

Your one player from a superbowl and a slot wr is that position or you are changing the offense to feature a slot WR or you run a west coast or Patriot type offense. We are not in any of these situation..

That is a sad reason not to take him (we do not use the weapons we have).You cannot ignore his accomplishments and film compared to patterson. He is more than just a slot receiver and has the ability to move outside.He is a Sproil and harvin in one package
