T. Austin < or = J. Adams

The funny thing is that I already said that Adams was drafted in the fourth round, but he was projected to go in the third last year. You take can't miss players with your top 15 picks. We already signed our punt and kick returner for this year. We could use a slot reciever, but they will be available later.

There's a big different from 4-3 and from 3-1.

Just listen to the experts like Mayock, McShay, etc. and quit thinking so hard. Tavon is no Adams.

Troll title for a thread that actually has some legitimate points in it. Austin is clearly a better prospect than Adams, but I'm not sure all the hype he's receiving is warranted. People on here love to proclaim every fast short receiver the next steve smith, who is one of the most unique players I have ever seen.

T.Austin is clearly a better prospect than J. Adams...but I do feel like we have too many short, quick receivers with Pilares, A.Edwards, J.Adams and even our Smitty (even though he's a special case)

I like how I talked about specific 40 time in my OP. Wait, I didn't talk about it. Literally, most of the post was about game speed and how the film in college was similar. I feel so god awfully fuging stupid. Maybe I didn't use enough exclamation marks.

Rewatch it again then. Even a donkey could tell the difference between the two.

Tavon speeds, quickness in and out of the routes are 100x better. What are you talking about???

Yeah, don't trust this kid for the same reasons I don't trust J. Adams talent at the NFL level.

If you want a WR and Patterson is there at 14 you take him, it's a no-brainer in my book.

Patterson has a higher potential to bust than Tavon.

Joe Adams is = or < Ace Sanders

Cool my vid got used for an argument. Also no Joe is def less than Ace. Ace is only 5'7 and still is faster and has better hands than Joe Adams. Only time I recall him dropping the ball he scored on the same play against georgia.

Only thing from this post I agree with is he should not be our pick at 14. The Joe Adams comparison is terrible.

I did struggle with the title. This guy does not have the leaping ability or hands of Steve. He has got skills, but he not a top 15 pick. He smells of Troy Williamson to me.

Please don't use draft projections or where a player was draft to determine the better player. To many example of that not working out.

Geno Atkins was a 4th round pick Tyson Jackson was a 1st round pick

Colston was a 7th round pick Jarret was a 2nd round pick.

Brady was a 6th round pick Leaf was the 2nd pick in the draft.

Even tho i think Austin is gonna be a good player, i still scratch my head at how people think he is gonna be some unstoppable weapon in the NFL.I mean this is Pro football, there are ways to take anybody out of a game unless they player is just so physically and athletically gifted that they are hard to stop. And Austin is lacking in the physical department and he wont dominate off his speed. I guarantee it.

And then there are things like this that some how go unoticed

Vaccaro was able to cover Austin pretty well in that game and he is not even that fast and overrated to some people. But i will say again, its not that i dont think Austin is gonna be great player its just that i dont think he will dominate in the ways people keep claiming he will and i think we need some thing different than what he offers at a 14th pick overall. Thats all.

Do you recall Joe Adams having alot of drops and fumbles at Arkansas? Austin and Ace have not played a down in the NFL.
