Well, we better do something in the draft because we ain't done poo in free agency.

1. FA started yesterday at four. A team with 4 mil in extra money may not be ready to make an ill-advised splash like Miami and these other teams blowing money. It has been seventeen hours.

2.Lets get cerebral.

The guy can make plays.He is versatile as he can play,slot, scat back, and punt and kick-off returns. He has elite speed and acceleration. As far as being the deep threat...I dont know if he was really given the opportunity but with his speed it certainly not out of the question.

Speed does not equal success. Drafting a slot receiver who plays special teams at 14 would prove to the league that Carolina has no problem picking at the top of the draft year in and year out.

He's basically Mike Wallace 2.0.

I don't see us taking him 14th overall but it doesn't hurt to look.

I like him but I'm not sure I do at 14 if Trufant, Warmack or Star are still on the board.

We do not need anymore Naanee type of guys.We are loaded with them

That's the point.
It's almost a guarantee that we're going to add a receiver through the draft. Don't think we're getting one through FA, bc if we do it's going to be a Naanee2.0.

Fug it lets draft him. I'm a believer that if you produce in college and also tear up the combine you will succeed in the nfl. Austin did both with flying colors. Dude just make plays, you can never have enough of those guys on your team

Shhh don't tell some people that. Some just know him cause he runs fast and everyone knows you can get a fast guy in the 6th rd.

In all seriousness I would be cool with the pick obviously but also realize if a guy like star or warmack is there it would be hard to pass on them. It will be fun to see where our new gm goes with his first pick but I'd be willing to guess its one of the lines since he emphasized that's how he learned to build a team

For this who have only known of him from sportscenter or combine results please see the thread in NFL Free Agency .

See Tavon Austin's Oklahoma game and see his explosion and game chaning ability and then say...ill only take him in the second. If he lasts till late then a good team could become great as he is Percy Harvin, Steve Smith in terms of explosive change of direction, body control and fighting for passes in the air. Wish he was taller but oh well!!

If Target guys are not there Austin is a fantastic choice at 14 bc he will not be there in the second. Trading down is not a likley option.
