Where will Tavon Austin be picked?

48 posts in this topic

I think if he makes it to the Bucs and Panther's that one of them would take him. Question becomes if the Bucs take Austin at 13 and the Panther's are still wanting to go either WR, DE, or Safety at 14. (They haven't really scouted anyone else in that range that would be available) Who would you take?????

If he's there at 14 I expect our phone will be ringing from multiple teams. I'd like to get him but don't think we will.

Yeah 14! Then Escobar, trade into the third for RAMBO! B. Williams. BPA rest of the way.

10-20

i'd give a more specific range but he's pretty polarizing so it's hard to say

Seen high as 8 and low as 16. He wont last past ther Rams they are wanting him bad and making a trip to Morgantown for a PI. If he is there at 14 I hope we find a trading partner and trade down. If we do take him I wont be mad.

I hope somewhere other than where we end up picking. Do not want to waste a first round pick on a #4 receiver

I hope you are kidding, because if you are not you my friend are an idiot. I fell Tavon will be a baller and would love to have him but having said that I look at our OL, DL , and secondary and have come to the conclusion that we just have too many holes to fill to draft him

    • Im pretty sure he was white as a ghost in the comics bro
    • They're results, not skillsets.  Too many factors go into those results to get a conclusive evaluation.  For instance, how many times was Howard targeted downfield compared to Njoku?  How was he used in the redzone...as a receiver, blocker, the primary option, and so forth? And yards after contact is a very inconsistent measure since not all contact is the same, nor are the situations in which a player gets the ball.  Not to mention the role the offensive scheme and surrounding talent plays.  Heck, if all we had to do was look at the numbers, there wouldn't be any need for the combine, all-star games, pro days, private workouts, etc.  Teams could just pull out the stat sheet and make their selections.  No, teams look for the skillsets a player possesses to determine how they translate to the NFL.  Stats are only an indicator to use as part of the puzzle.  So, just looking at the actual skills, what does Njoku possess that is superior to Howard?  Has he shown better hands?  Has he shown he can run better routes?  Is he a better athlete?  Is he a better blocker? The answer is no to all of them.  Does that mean Njoku is a bad player?  Absolutely not.  But Howard clearly has the better tools, and is considered the better prospect by virtually every evaluator for a reason.
