This is probably more a Tavon Austin post than a "Patterson vs Austin" post. There are Patterson fans and Austin fans on this forum (excluding the Keenan, etc fans). I love both, dont get me wrong but I'm more on the Tavon bandwagon. I would not be mad at all if we were to land Patterson. But, this is my case for Tavon over Patterson.

The two are similar in that both are "play makers". The only difference is their size. People wants to praise Patterson bc of his ability to make plays, but the thing is Austin makes those kind of plays every single week, and he does it BETTER.

Look here. This is the play that everyone talks about when Patterson is mentioned.

Now look at this. I already posted this video I found on another thread, but what I have here is a 10 min video of Tavon doing the exact same thing Patterson did in the video above. Get my point?

Both are exciting and play makers. Austin is just more dynamic/explosive, and does it more on a consistent basic than Patterson.

This is a video I found by Rosterwatch (Alex Dunlap and Mike Loyko; no clue who they are). This was before the Senior Bowl and Combine, but I thought they did a good break down on Tavon Austin.

Why should we take him? skip to 48sec

That's all. Thank you. :)

2 different types of WR's. It really depends on the type offense you play and the surrounding pieces.

Yup, that I agree and both will play different position in the NFL.
I just wanted to compare them, bc pretty much they are "play makers" (run, punt/kick returns, etc.)

You dont draft slot wr's / KR's with the 14th pick.

Austin is good, but he is a luxury pick, something we dont have

Thats probably what all 32 teams said in 2004 for Welker (SLOT RECEIVER). Thats why he went undrafted.
In a redo 2004 Draft, would you seriously think Welker wouldnt be a top 14 pick over guys like Roy Williams (7), Reggie Williams (9), and Lee Evans (13), or over guys like Michael Clayton (15), Michael Jenkins (29), and Rashaun Woods (31) who all made the 1st round?

Like I said, if we didnt have other major needs than I wouldnt mind Austin.

slot WR is not a PP.

Luxury pick imo

Receiver is a need. Do you really think that we're good at that position by signing Ted Ginn? Lafail is nothing but a solid no.3, and Ginn is an unproven receiver. He failed to produce in a Jim Harbaugh's system. Im not sure how much he can be under Shula.

We need guys that can flat out ball on this offense. I dont care if they're 5'8 and not 6'3. We need guys who can keep the chain moving, and convert on 3rd down. Austin could be that guy.

I want a number 1 / outside receiver before a slot receiver.

Who's a number 1 receiver on the outside in this Draft? Patterson? Keenan? Hunter? Im not sure if they can be. Id have to go with Hunter probably out of those three. Keenan may become a great no.2 instead of a number 1.

People I see that can / could be a number 1 in this draft

Hopkins
Rodgers
Hunter
Williams
Allen
Patton
Patterson (solely on potential as he needs alot of work, to risky for me)

Id go with Hopkins as a sure thing. At the very least you are getting a dominant #2.

He has insane hands and route running, to go along with insane stats and a respectable WR body.

You're telling me that just bc Austin is a "slot", doesnt mean he can be a No.1?
So, Welker isnt a no.1? Percy isnt a no.1? Both of them are no.1 receiver. "GO TO GUY".

Can Welker Line up in any other position besides the slot?

I would also like to see how Welker looks when he isn't in that Patriot offense.

When I say number1 it is in reference to the outside WR. ie the 1&2 are generally on the outside with the 3 being the slot

Austin like Welker can def be "go to guys". Just like a TE. Just not number1 receivers in my definition.
