AE was neither a WR ,RB or special teams player.How can you say that without comparing the stats of what he accomplished. He was much more accomplished than Joe Adams.

I watched several games and he looked like we can bypass the step of teaching him how to play football.I wish people that do not like him would just leave at that and quit making comments like the one above

neither guy was nearly as polished and talented as a receiver. that's why he'll be taken much earlier. that's why he'll be more productive.

just because he's small, fast, and can return the ball doesn't make him overrated. thinking that way is pretty narrow-minded.

I am pretty sure you are missing my sarcasm in my post. I am definitely on the tavon bandwagon and hope we draft him. Ken was implying his hype was just because he ran fast like many others on here have suggested. As a wvu fan I know how good of a football player he is and do not need any convincing.

Narrow minded? Why cause I think he is overrated. He is coming from a wide open offense. He won't be playing against subpar players in the NFL. I watched the highlights of the Oklahoma game and saw piss poor tackling and a player that is going to get light up like a Christmas tree when comes in the big boys league.

I remember everyone ranting and raving how AE speed and open field ability was going to put us over the top. Last year I heard the same damn thing about how Joe Adams was the steal of the draft and he was going to tear this league up once he gets into the open field. Now for the 3rd time in 4 years I am hearing the same damn thing about 175lb speedster out of College with a wide open offense.

At 175lbs he is going to get pushed and bumped all over the field and never get into his route.

The only narrow mind is the fact everyone thinks he is going to be a game changer. His college stats and highlights are great but he is going to struggle in the NFL. HE IS NOT NFL READY!!!!!

He might one day be a game changer but it won't be in 2013 or 2014 and probably not until 2015 before he even sniffs 1000 yds. We don't need to waste a No. 1 pick on a 2 or 3 year project.

I think Ace Sanders can bring the same dynamic, but you can draft him later.

I don't have a dog in this Tavon Austin argument but I had to point out that what you said was EXACTLY what they were ALL saying in 2011 before we drafted Cam... When you draft safe, you get safe. When you draft flashy, you can potentially, get flashy.

Percy Harvin was drafted four WR's after Darius Heyward-Bay in 2009, good thing Oakland played it safe... turned out great for them.
