Don't burn me alive for saying it but when watching his highlight reel, I thought I saw an 89 on his back.

Ryan Swope will be a better and more productive slot receiver than Tavon Austin.

Book it.

Steve Smith stats in college at Utah.

He had a 20+ average per gain LOLOLOLOL

SMITH WAS A DEEP THREAT IN COLLEGE.

NFL Scouts and personnel guys: Austin is a mid first rd grade and elite play-maker at WR. As he proved in college against elite talent. Snags passes and will be a Percey Harvin type weapon.

The Huddle:

"We have Joe Adams!"(a 4th rounder who could not of get ahead of Keohla Pilares and was benched for fumbles)

"...But the Razorbacks had other targets...that were "so dominant" Joe could not be featured!" which is why he was a sought after-4th rounder...and I love the Espy's.

adds "Ryan Swope will be a better slot receiver"...drool...empty stare...others hi-five on the internet.

Austin will be the best whatever he is.. he makes up for his size with elite speed and proven ability to excel as a game planned target.

we probably will not take him even if he is there but this discussion has gotten really off track when Welker started as a KR PR who had decent speed..he is just 32 years old n has a bunch of miles now.

Austin is a deep threat. He had a lot of long receptions. But Bailey was the primary deep threat at WVU.

One is an after the catch nightmare so why throw deep when you can move the sticks? psst..





It's not Bailey. And if yrds per reception avg has ever been an indication of NFL success. Heyward-Bey anyone? Troy Williamson?

Tavon did not have A LOT OF DEEP CATCHES BECAUSE IF HE DID, IT WOULD SHOW UP IN HIS AVG.

Stop trying to argue with me with your wv shades on and bring stats to the table like i do.

I will not respond to you 3 blind mice. lol Some people don't understand how to read certain stats, to show where a player positives and weaknesses are to know what type of player a prospect is.

I have proven my point and I am right. Tavon is no more than a slotwr. Will he be a yac monster?.....maybe. But a deep threat?? NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE.

I repeat to all football fans who know what the fug is going on. TAVON IS NOT A fugKIN DEEP THREAT.

STOP TALKING OPINIONS KID AND SHOW ME VIDEO AND STATS to prove your dumb biased ass point.


I could give a FUCCK if anyone gives me pie.... I KNOW IM RIGHT. I don't need other bandwagon users to support my every fugking statement, like I'm a dumb ass child unsure of my sexuality.

I stand alone bit(ch and i love it.

you know they invented this thing called a TV. You can actually watch players play the game instead of reading the stats in the paper.

I don't think it is fair to label Austin as just a slot guy. To me, he is someone that can be used anywhere, and he definitely can be used on the outside. Using ypc as a way of saying Austin is no Smitty is really not fair. First of all, they were used in completely different ways, so their numbers were skewed to their respective roles. Yes, Smitty's ypc was much higher, but he had less than half the catches than Austin.

Does that mean Smitty can only be used as a deep threat? No, just that that's how he was used at Utah. It's the same thing with Austin. He wasn't used as a deep threat, but that doesn't mean he can't do it. He certainly has the deep speed and quickness to blow by most corners...and the strength to fight through hand checks. He's also close to the same size Smitty was when he came out, and is solidly built, so I'm really not as concerned about his durability as some.

Now just looking at him compared to Smitty, it's not really all that ridiculous to say that they can be similar players (as in being legit #1 receivers that rely on their speed and athleticism to overcome their lack of height). Really, the biggest difference is that while Austin is just as explosive as Smitty, he's clearly faster and quicker than Steve ever was, but he's not the leaper that Steve is.

With all that said, I go back and forth on if I would be happy with him at 14. I guess it would depend on who's there. Right now, I think we desperately need to fix our DT's and the right side of our OL, so I don't know if I could pass on one of those positions for a WR, no matter how electric he may be. And while corner is also a big need, I think anyone other than Milliner would be a huge reach at our spot (I'm just not sold on Trufant's toughness or Rhodes savvy and instincts). But if everything plays out where a WR is our pick, then I think Austin would be my first choice, way ahead of Patterson and Allen (both of whom I think will be good players).

Also, LOL at wanting to make a statement about how a converted RB is not a deep threat, while failing to realize that he was one of the most dangerous WRs in the country and he was a CONVERTED RB WHO IS USED TO COMING OUT OF THE BACKFIELD.

C'mon man. Educate yourself and stop talking about AVG or YAC or all of that. The dude is a weapon. Teams need weapons. Especially the Panthers. Hell, even when he carried the ball as a RB, he had a great average. Last year alone he averaged like 230 YPG as one player. Second overall in the nation. Second overall all-time for NCAA WRs IIRC. AND THAT WAS IN AN OFFENSE WHERE HE WASN'T NECESSARILY THE PRIMARY WEAPON.

Or, if you'd rather, we can continue to draft later round WRs and keep waiting for them to develop into something at the next level... (see Colbert, Carter, Jarrett, Robinson, LaFell, Gettis, Edwards, Pilares, Adams)... How long did we wait (and are we still waiting) on some of those guys to develop? lol

I would think it's easier to find deep threats in other rounds/FA than it would be to find a Percy Harvin type player like Austin. You don't pass on elite weapons that fall to you.

I'm honestly starting to think he may be the first receiver off the board at 8 to Buffalo. Don't know that he's worth that, but I think it's a legitimate possibility.

Yeah saw some mocks have him in the top 10. Will be interesting to see where he goes. Even at 14 I think the Panthers should trade down or take a WR in the 2nd. To many needs for this team.
