I believe Austin will be the offensive rookie of the year wherever he goes.

I agree. The only thing that could stop him is going to a team with absolutely no qb like the jets. Even then he would do good but maybe not quite what he's capable of. If he goes to a team that can use him properly and a qb that can throw the ball at least average I'd say he wins it going away.

He was a slot receiver college, i am not convinced he will come in and be better than that in the pros. But if we take him than i guess we will find out.

I don't think we take him. He's good don't get me wrong, but we just signed a KR/PR in Ted Ginn, we have a bigger 1st round need like #1 WR and a Safety (all the NTs will be there in the second round). I think we are going to take a so called "reach" Deandre Hopkins (even though I think he's the best pure WR in this draft). Plus today Gettleman said we aren't trading down and we are taking the BPA at 14. I think I read somewhere, where he said that his draft board is a lot different from everyone elses or the so called experts.

Hopkins would be a reach in my opinion.We will just have to see but I am an admitted T Auston fan.

His board? I don't know what board is, but what I got from what he said about the famous trading "1 buck for 3 dimes" is that he isn't to excited about trading down, and probably wouldn't unless it is a couple of spots down like 3. Tavon Austin like I said is good, but I just don't think we are going to take him, the two guys we have been most interested in at WR is Hopkins and Allen (and I really hope we don't take Allen). And at safety we are interested in both Kenny Vaccaro and Johnathen Cyprien (which in some eyes is a reach).

So what you and me may think maybe a reach isn't a reach in Gettlemans eyes, and after yesterday I trust what he is doing. The 4 guys I mentioned, excluding Allen are not reaches to me.

The Jets would be crazy not to take Austin, he would be instant offense and might even make Sanchez look good on those 1 yard pass plays that go for 60 yards. That is where he goes i think, but he sure would be fun to watch in Carolina too.
