Jaworski thinks Carolina should get him. He's the same size as DeSean Jackson but quicker.

After attending West Virginia's Pro Day on Thursday, ESPN's Ron Jaworski predicted WR Tavon Austin will be a top-15 pick.[/background][/background][/size][/font][/color][color=#0000FF][font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif, Verdana][size=3][background=transparent]
"This guy is absolutely lightning quick," said Jaws. "He's one of the quickest guys I've ever seen and I've been around the game since 1973. This guy just accelerates when he gets the football and, although he's a little bit diminutive, I think this guy's gonna go in the top 15." Carolina would be an intriguing landing spot at No. 14. New Panthers GM Dave Gettleman -- a former Giants exec -- could see some Victor Cruz in the versatile Austin[/background][/size][/font][/color]

is there that much of a difference between this guy and joe adams that tavon would be worth a #14 pick and adams can't see the field on offense?

No, I'm hoping his value continues to increase so we have a trade partner in Rams/Vikings for him. I see him as nothing better than a slot WR and return man. I can get that in the 4th rd

Dont see the hype is this kid. But there is hype so we should use it to our advantage and trade back to get an extra 2nd.

We need a big dude

Adams ran a 4.59 and plays like it. Austin is a 4.3 guy and plays like a 4.0 guy.

Gettleman isn't going to trade back, so we might as well accept that. He's a big believer in the BPA philosophy.

Yeah, we do need a big receiver but we just signed Bryant and Rosario. So who knows? Dave might feel comfortable about taking Tavon at 14th.

Austin's route-running and hands are superior too.

Absolutely not. I think Austin could very well be a good player, especially in the right environment, but he doesn't fit what we need. If we go WR early (and I think we should, but in the 2nd), it shouldn't be ANOTHER undersized speedy guy. Most teams have 1 or 2 undersized speedy guys at most to add some variety to their passing game. Our WR corps is dominated by undersized speedy guys.

Adams' "play" or lackthereof had nothing to do with his speed. When he got on the field he was plenty speedy enough. He just isn't polished enough as a receiver and still gets the nerves when PRing.
