    According to Todd mcshay on esspn yesterday tavon austin is the highest graded in space runner he has ever graded over cj spllierwho made probowl for that very reason.i dont see a gamechanger at DE ,now if millner fell
    i would take him,out sec would be set,but if we did draft austin,u know they want to get rid of nate,they have
    waltert vet slot guy he can learn fronm in training camp & move wright outside or switch them up.with cj & britt
    came on at end of year ,tape shows he played alot better,we can getv warford in 2nd or winters who titans seem to love in late 3rd early 4th.plus just throwing screens to austin would be a great security blanket for locker,if he is better in space than spliiller & harvin ,i say get a gamebreaker.

    You need a new keyboard but yes I wouldn't mind Austin at 10.


    I'd take CP too.

    There are 0 reasons to draft Austin at 10.

    1.) He's not first round worthy
    2.) Kendall Wright was a better college player, and will be a better NFL player than him.
    3.) Took a first round WR last year

    If Tennessee goes WR, there's plenty better than Austin in this draft class
    Especially Patterson

    5 foot 7, system WR... No thanks. Geno Smith made the kid. I honestly am not buying into the hype but i could be wrong

    You are completly wrong,most all mocks have him going in 1st,
    Geno will be a bust ,he had austin & stedman baker wide open in the games
    against bad teams where he put up his stats,then when they only had a step like in the nfl he sucked & wva got blown out.

    Tavon Austin is a first round player.

    Geno averaged like 7-8 yards a pass. It was his receivers, Tavon Austin, that made the yards after the catch.

    Austin made Geno

    I respect both of your opinions but let me know who wins offensive rookie of the year this year and let me know who has a better NFL career. Austin should not be a first round pick, just look at the past history of 1st round WR's. He does not compare to any of them besides AJ jenkins, although the jury is still out with him

    I would mind it very much. We don't need another slot WR we need a guy who can play outside of the hash marks.

    We used 1st rd picks 2 of the last 4 drafts. That's not enough? How many CBs or guards have we drafted high in that time?

    He's a WR and you compared him to a RB. What is wrong with that?

    Wr is a very high risk position and the only type of WR i would consider that high would be an EG green Julio Jones type. He is not even close!

    Really? Because Austin was not the best Wr on that team Stedman Bailey was. Bailey had a higher yards per catch and more yards.

    Anybody want Bailey in the first rd?
