Depends on his height/weight measurement...I would say 2nd-3rd for me. Has nice hands and can catch in traffic. Reminds me of Antonio Brown.

I think he goes late 1st. Percy Harvin type player.

He's a first. Best open space talent since Harvin.


Welker wishes he was half the physical talent Austin is.

Great in the open field spreads the field horizontally. Not sure how much he will offer as an outside receiver in the NFL. He isnt great challenging DB's vertically down the field. His teammate Stedman Bailey is a better "WR"

I think NFL teams will use him much like the Chiefs use Dexter McCluster. He will be a good return specialist and scat back hybrid at the next level.

Is he more talented than McCluster as a prospect? I don't know about that.

I could see him being plucked from the board in the early first though. Somebody in the NFL is salivating over this guy right now.

You think early first? I don't know how you can question whether a guy is as good a prospect as Dexter McCluster and then turn around and say he is an early first round pick. Would you take Dexter McCluster in the top of the first? Someone will probably take a shot at him in the mid 2nd, depending on what he times in the 40. He's not quite as fast as everyone makes him out to be. I hate to sound cliche' but he is much "quicker" than "fast".

I've watched Tavon play since he was in highschool. He played my brother in the Maryland state championship and I am a season ticket holder at WVU. I have remained relatively close to the football program since the time I attended there. Tavon will shock me if he can hit anywhere in the <4.45 in an electrically timed 40. He is a great college player and could be pretty decent in the NFL, but his measurables will scare many teams off. You are looking at more of a Dante Hall than a Wes Welker when you select Tavon.

Percy Harvin - 5'11 185 4.41 40
Tavon Austin - 5'9 170 4.38 (projected) 40
Dexter McCluster - 5'8 170 4.58 40

Definitely a first round player. I would say he's a mix of Percy Harvin and Andrew Hawkins.

I would say he's a lot like Hawkins except Tavon is a much better returner (natural return skills)...

he seems a lot slower than that projected 40.
he has the moves and the quickness to make up for it though

Austin has nowhere the strength and power of Harvin. Jerrel Jernigan and TY Hilton are better comps.

We all know teams like to over draft with guys like Austin. Especially teams desperate for a playmaker. Because of that, I believe he will be an early-mid first rounder. No later than 15. Whether or not I agree with it is another issue.

And no, I would not have taken McCluster in the early first. I think he got plucked exactly where he should have.

Understandable.

Yeah, he's kinda in between them. He's faster than Jernigan and slower than Hilton.

I don't see a first rounder. Forget his stats for a second, his QB is gonna be the #1 pick. He is only 5'9, how many receivers go first round at that height? He's a second day guy to me.
