Where will Tavon Austin be picked?

48 posts in this topic

He is one of the more polarizing prospects in the top 20. I understand the argument that he is a small slot receiver but my thoughts go back to his ability to make plays if given just a small amount of space.

Will he be used the same way in the pros running and catching the ball? Can his small frame hold up?

I guess we will see how the GMs and the scouts view him in over a week.

Sportsbook.com has his over/under at 13.5. I would be willing to bet he will be drafted higher than that, possibly to us at 14.

Im thinking in the 20's. Probably 22 to the vikings.

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

If he is picked at 14 he will not be a number 4. I dont see it happening however.

High as eight or nine, or low as 16.

    • Running a more advanced college style, fun and gun type system, could be the future for a lot of teams.  Chip Kelly flamed out, but he may have just been too early. Get the players who a. have thrived in similar systems, and b. create mismatches with your "typical" NFL defenders and attack attack attack.    I mean, even imagine our no huddle/hurry up offense right now...Stew, McCaffrey, Fozzy, Samuel, Cam all capable of carrying the ball (in a variety or play designs).  Now we have a couple guys with speed to stretch the field, or work short crossing routes and YAC galore.  Meanwhile, KB and Funch will (hopefully) improve and be able to use their big frames to body smaller defenders.  Olsen is Olsen. Defenses will have to play a guessing game and pick their poison trying to stop this offense when it wants to put its foot on the gas. A LOT of possibilities and freedom for this offense...potentially. 
    • Misleading. Tyreke Hill would have gotten drafted much much earlier if not for the domestic violence
