Hey guys,raider fan here. Only commenting on your thread because as much as i love Oakland.... RG3 is my boy. Was praying all draft long last year that some how Oak would find some way to steal him... obv to no avail. Regardless.... got RG3's jersey on my wall....

Anyways, point being; as an RG3 fan, imo Austin could take your offense to the next level. Austin is an all around threat.... normally im not a huge fan of the 'tweeners', however.... you guys run a very unorthodox, spread offense... imo adding a guy like austin would be perfect. Austin is a guy you have to account for at any position on the field... he really can take it to the house whenever he's got the ball. You guys seem to run a lot of plays that revolve simply around getting the ball to a playmaker.... whether it's read options, options, bubbles screens, bombs etc.... IMO the way your offense works, a guy like Austin fits perfectly. He's just a play maker. Doesn't matter how he gets the ball or where, he's a play maker. IMO that is something your offense seems to be very adapt at.... not making a player one dimensional. What makes Austin great is the fact that he isn't a WR, he's a play maker. You guys seem to have a knack for utilizing playmakers.... Call me crazy but i can just picture Austin in a skins uni.... and wow is it scary.

I disagree Turtle. I believe Moss was far more advanced as a wide receiver prospect and much more talented.

well I went to Wvu when moss was in school and we played them twice a year when Miami was still in the big east.

As a x Wvu student I've seen a lot of Tavon Austin.

Just go watch the orange bowl Wvu vs Clemson last year and tell me you don't see Moss in Austin. Watch the Baylor, And Texas games from this year.

I'm not going to jump in the Moss vs. Austin debate, but I also think he'll be gone by the time we pick.

he did it vs everyone though, not just that game. Just giving an example Wink

http://m.nfl.com/news/0ap1000000144535/

He's Percy Harvin and Wes Welker wrapped into one!

at pick 51 theres a good chance he's gone. Regardless of where he's projected, he's the kind of player a team will reach on.... imo he'll go higher than expected. However, you guys clearly have no issue trading up ;)

Just tossing this out there though, imo Hankerson is gonna be a beast. Absolutely loved him at Miami, WR is a bit crowded in washington atm but give it time... Garcon and Hankerson with Austin playing the slot.... wow.

I know he did it to everyone. But using the worst defense Ive ever seen as an example isnt a plus you should use. lol


But for him. Worst case. Hes Jacoby Ford or Trendon Holliday. And thats at worst. Which would still make him a valuable commodity to any team.
Being he is a guy that will see field, with practically 0 chance of bust. Hes valuable in the draft. I can see teams jumping on him early. And cant blame them a bit for doing so.
Not going to toss any names on who to compare him to. Cause I dont know how Id use him exactly just yet. Havent thought about it. But a streaker down the edge like Ford or over the middle like Welker, or taking alot of dumps and screens. Hes versatile. And hope someone has a great gameplan to use him to his fullest. Cause I think he could break a play wide open at any moment.

Id use him how moss was used as a young WR for the jets or how the Vikings use Harvin. He's a similar player.

I might actually send him streaking turtle.

RG has a arm, We have a run game with Morris. Got Garcon on the outside too.
Send him streaking down field like Ford. Could open the middle and let the TEs have that portion of the field.

Then we have deep, middle, short all covered. Run game covered, and a qb that can get out of trouble and wait on plays to develop.
Wed be dangerous at every single aspect of offense then.

And to mix it up Id leave him as a dumpoff outlet for RG. That could be where hes most dangerous. But thats not a card you want to show your hand on ever play. Gotta spread that D out, which he can help do.

he'll be a guy you mix it up with like Moss in the early 2000's (before we tried to make him our #1 wr,) which he never was a #1 type and he should be used like Harvin.
