because he cannot play the 1 or 2?


I see this said all the time, and it's patently false. Small speedy receivers don't need to play in the slot. Anyone who makes the assumption that the only receiver position that fast, speedy, short receivers can play is in the slot is just plain being simple minded. With his speed and ability combination, Austin has the potential to gain separation and stretch the field from any receiver positional alignment. What he couldn't be is a possession receiver, in the mold of Moose, but he would never be asked to be. We don't need a possession receiver that can grab high passes out of the air. That's basically Lafell's job, and very likely Lamont Bryant's future job. What we need is a future downfield, dynamic playmaking receiver, which is most definitely what Austin is.

I don't even want Austin at 14.

I do think the teams obvious success with throwing mid to late round picks at the WR position should chart our behavior moving forward. Steve Smith will play forever and isn't slowing down at all and we have a wealth of talent headlined by Brandon LaFell ready in the wings.

We should grab a Guard in the 1st as they are super scarce and hard to come by in FA or later rounds of the draft. Hunter and Rodgers do sound like good targets in the second if we decide to draft someone to sit behind Edwards on the roster. Sure, Hunter goes through long bouts of the dropsies and is one ACL tear from using his degree and Rodgers can't pass a drug test to save his life and probably has a Hefty bag of cocaine under his couch, but both sound like much better alternatives to Austin, who is short and pretty much does the same thing as Adams who is just ready to bust out.

Also, if all a team can think to do with Austin is put him in the slot and call it a day, that team has bigger issues than roster height or talent.

Joe Adams has literally the slowest 40 time out of any receivers currently on the Panthers, AE, Pilares, and even fuging Lafell, included.

This is false

What game day receiver on our team has a slower 40 time? I'm not talking about some practice squad scrub.

Bc these days people likes to compare prospects not to who they plays like, but to who they look like.

-Both Adams and Tavon are 5foot receivers.
-Any black QB gets the Cam comparison.
-White MLBs are Urlacher 2.0
-RBs numbered 34 with dreads are Dwill
-All the white receivers get the Wes Welker comparison


Is this something like people comparing Austin to Steve Smith? The kid just striaght up is not worth the 14th pick. I hope you can find something to replace your pics when he is not added to our roster.

I'm guessing that you're not catching the sarcasm?
