The OK draft Tavon Austin at 9 I don't care if he's small thread


Recommended Posts

Watched  a number of West Virgina games since they were in Big East -Austin  always impressed me with his multiple uses and quickness to make plays-Geno Smith not so much-

Rare that T0m gets hard for a guy who isn't a creamy white 6'5 TE.       I wouldn't have a problem with him at 9 though.  The stutter step is absurd.

Trading down to 16, getting this guy and picking up a mid 2nd round pick or a 3rd and a 4th would be awesome.

Good points. I love that Gastineau Lives was up at 4:45 thinking about this. My thoughts, most of which are not original: 1. He's not just a slot receiver because he has sick vertical speed.

Nerp. Can't hit what you can't see. Tavon Austin has never been tackled, and he never will be.  He's the best pick for us and will ignite an offense sorely lacking playmakers. 

Cart before horse. Let me know when they have a genuine QB then we can talk about drafting a flea like Austin because they are still a 6 win team with him.

We can't pause the development of the roster, waiting for an elite QB to come our way.  We need to put ourselves in the best position to win football games, with or without elite positional play under center.  Right now, we are implementing an offense that requires short to medium throws in timing based patterns.  We have the QB talent to make those throws.  We need guys who can take a 3-yard slant, twelve yards down the field.  and 9-yard out patterns, to the endzone. 

 

"fleas" like Austin are exactly what we need to get over the hump... as they enable us to score on any given play.

No need to worry . The Jets are not taking this guy at 9. Idzik seems to be  smarter than that.

Based on what? Inexpensive, high-upside players signed in free agency? Doesn't it reason to figure we will add high-upside players through the draft?
