That may be the worst comparison since Luke Kuechly to Dan Connor.

Ehhh, considering Austin has Wallace's shortcomings, I stand by my comparison. Percy is the better and more polished receiver, but I do see the similarities in their game.

Not sure I understand these Mike Wallace comparisons. Austin, from what I have seen and read, isn't viewed as a deep threat. At least at this point in his career he hasn't developed that part of his game but I think he could eventually stretch the field vertically.

Currently, Austin is a matchup nightmare for anyone in the slot and can be lethal running out of the backfield or with sweeps, screens, crossing routes, and what not. He is great at returning kicks and punts and is just a playmaker that can be used in a variety of ways and is the definition of versatile.

As I have said in the draft forum, my only worry is his durability and I wonder if Shula could really use Tavon to the best of his ability to get the most out of him in our offense.

I think he may be referring to Percy Harvin coming out of college.

No, that distinct honor goes to Buc fans for their comparison of Kuechly as Ruud 2.0.

Also, I think Austin could allow us to trade back possibly if he isn't our guy. I could see the Vikings wanting another Harvin type player and looking to move up ahead of the Rams to secure Harvin if he is available right before they pick at 16.

Austin definitely has Harvin's agility and ability to make defenders miss but WV never rarely tried to establish Tavon as a deep threat. Wallace of course is bigger and is the type of receiver that stretches the field with his straight-line speed but when looking at Austin and Wallace, they're more alike than fans realize, especially when arriving to their receiving skills.

Either way, I see The Pats picking him up.

I don't think he has much of a chance of falling to 29 after the combine performance he just had and he will likely impress just as much in private workouts and his pro-day.

    • First I got to say, damn, people trying to instantly make us the most hated team in the league, even over the Patriots aren't they lol. With all the hate Cam already gets then add Kap even if briefly, oh lord I'd hate to picture it. Yeah that first play is what stands out to me the most. I'd expect even a rookie QB to make that read and throw the ball instead of handing it off. That drive ended up in a safety where as if he throws it to Torrey Smith it is easily a 1st down and possibly a TD as he only has to beat one man. I don't even see Kap look around any in that clip so even more so it feels like he gave it away that it was a run play and the Rams read it like a book. I don't feel like we need him nor do I feel like he is better than what we have. As for his protest, I didn't like what he was doing when he was kneeling but hey he had the right to do it. I personally think him putting his money where his mouth was, was a better way than just kneeling and I commend him for doing so. To be honest the 49'ers have said they would welcome him back. Let's not forget he would still be with them had he not voided his own contract. Somebody will sign him though I just don't see it as a starter which is what he clearly wanted to try and be by voiding with the 49'ers.
    • I feel like this is some kind of guilty admission lol and you should feel bad for voting for that Lunatic / traitor president of ours.    But guess what, you will get a chance to redeem yourself in 2020 with more information about the disgraced president  coming out every week. 


    • We don't know if we have or not. Only way we know most of this is the players taking to social media.
