Where will Tavon Austin be picked?

To whoever makes a ridiculous offer to us to trade up to 14.

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

You make my point. Eventually I think he will be good but I don't think you roll him out day one and have him start. We need to draft an every down player rather than a WR that will be good but needs to be brought along. We dont have the luxury to take him at 14.

Austin will step in on day 1 and be ready. He knows most of the routes. Also he will be the primary pr/kr from the start. First round value right there.

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.

I would be very interested to read what you heard about gettlemans board.
