You're still looking at Austin as a slot wr.



Bc he is a "slot" receiver and will be best utilize as a slot receiver. He's no 89.
Corners are getting bigger and bigger. Just look at this upcoming draft in April. Milliner, Rhodes, Banks, Desmond, and Amerson are all 6'0 or taller. You dont want a 5'8 receiver playing on the outside just bc he has some speed.

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


So it's a sad reason to want to see the players we drafted in the "LAST 2 Years" used. Before we draft another player that is suppose to do the same type things??

Really??

I love that boy. I still haven't forgot about him. He's going to be something special. He will be a tremendous Returner. Could def be a very good slot receiver.

He was somewhat the better receiver out of the three draftees outta Arkansas last year. Greg Childs had huge potential but had a serious injury. Hopefully he can recover from it. And Jarius Wright played damn well in the few games he got to play. I know Adams can have the same impact if he can just get out of Rivera's dog pound.

That was the point Chuck. Why draft a guy at 14 when we have a guy we drafted "LAST YEAR" to do the same thing. To bad Chud was a dumb ass who couldn't find a way to get this guy more chances on the field. Or Rivera has the dumbest Dog house rules. Naka gets to fug up a lot and everybody else has to be inactive.

Joe Adams and Tavon Austin are NOT the same guy.

They are just both under 6 ft tall and returned kicks.

There was a reason why Joe fell to the 4th... Avg speed, stroke. It wasnt like the wrs in the draft were all world for three rounds.

Yes really......they are nowhere near the same player.If they are one in the same the stats sure do not show it. Austin had over 1200 yards receiving to Adams 600 and add another 640 rushing.

So they wouldn't play the same position and do the same type plays right?

So we're not going to use the different offenses they played in. The difference Conferences (Big East, SEC) and the fact that Adams played with 2 other WR's and a TE who got a lot of touches when we talk about the differences in stats?

Yes, and like i said there are 3 different type of slot wr.

Tavon is of the Wes Welker Cloth......

I would consider him as an deep threat, but his avg per gain suggest other wise.......12 yards per gain is not a DEEP THREAT.

Desean Jackson had an 18.2 avg in college. He showed that he could beat coverage down field on a regular basis.

SHOW ME WHERE TAVON GOES DEEP, ON A REGULAR BASIS IN ONE GAME OR MULTIPLE and i will change my mind.

If Tavon could go down field, WHY DID'NT THEY USE HIM LIKE THAT in COLLEGE????

Oh I forgot, he had a terrible QB that couldn't get him the ball down field.............(lol)

I agree. Point is unless we are changing our offense to a(west coast or Patriot) type offense where we feature a "Slot WR" then why would we pick 1 with a top 15 pick? Are we really a team in position to take a specialty Player that high? We will still be running the ball a lot and Austin isn't a guy who will be able to block on running plays. So that cuts your top 15 pick off the field for 45% to 50% of your offense.

Oh yeah , IF Joe Adams could get some drills to help him with catching balls and holding onto the football, he would be fine in the slot.

Slotwr are known to be SURE HANDED. They are not known FOR SUPER SPEED.

There is difference between between being Quick and being FAST. I would judge slotwr on their 10 yard splits, rather than their overall 40 time.

Wes Welker is a great route runner that can find holes in the defense. When he finds a hole then Brady throws the ball and he catches it always. That's what made a few fans mad at Wes because he started dropping important balls in the Superbowl, when a slotwr is supposed to be SURE HANDED.

Hi Joe,

If you could learn to run faster than LaFell and maybe stop dropping footballs like you were allergic we'd probably stop laughing and give you the full measure of respect a 4th round pick deserves.

Yours,

Sloth

And also Edgerrin James, a potential HOF running back, was in that Colts offense too. Guess he did bad since he didn't have a star slotwr to help him out.(lol)

What is this slow thing people have with Adams??

You can't be a the best Special Team returner in the SEC and be slow.

Please don't let a 40' time fool you. He is way faster in pads during game time.

He does need to work on his hands but he is a perfect fit to play slot WR.
