Damn he is impressive on tape. He could be about as good as Steve Smith. If the Panthers believe in him enough to select him at 14, I will be very excited to have him.

He is very impressive.Can we get in his hands enough to rate a 14th pick I don't know.Reminds me of randall cobb and smitty .I think if we could use him as a scat back,slot receiver and in returns he may warrant the 14th pick.The guy can flat fly and can make things happen in space. Is a Percy harvin type talent worth a 14th pick I think so

His vertical is terrible in comparison to Smith's. Also while rarely mentioned Smith is one of the strongest receivers in the game and its makes a difference. Smith put up 22 reps at the combine and Austin had 14 for comparison.

Have to agree with this Smitty was alot stronger and better leaping abililty. Austin can go up for the catches and in traffic. But to fight off 2 tacklers at the same time like Smitty he cant do it.

Also one play that stands out is against Texas. Austin leaped up and caught the ball for a first down was impressive as the defender was right there. At the 5:33 mark good leaping ability there. but he tackler was a little nice to him.

He's fast and can make guys miss. However his size shows and can be kind of easy to bring down at times. Kind of like DeSean Jackson. Teams will probably just try to throw him around and get him frustrated. What makes Smitty so unique is the fact that it's really hard to throw him around.
