I wasn't comparing them directly, only saying that we are one of the few teams that have extensive experience utilizing smaller players as featured receivers. I doubt seriously we could ever use Austin as a pure #1 receiver in the way we use Smith, no one quite has Smith's ability to outfight defensive backs for balls. But, the NFL is moving away from #1 and #2 receiver distinctions anyways, these days it's better to have 3 #2's than a traditional #1, #2, #3. The Packers epitomize this with Nelson, Jones and Cobb.
agreed i think the bottom line should be there isn't really a safe pick at 14, the closest would a Offensive Lineman if there was one but whether its tavon,allen, warmack or anyone else once there announced as a Panther im on the bandwagon
