Is this what you’re talking about..?

Injuries

Injuries are a major red flag for Austin, as he suffered a torn ACL in 2017 and then re-injured it in 2018.

Had it not been for the injuries he was headed towards being an excellent prospect. NFL.com’s Chad Reuter said he would have been a day two pick and ESPN’s Mel Kiper had him ranked as the fourth best senior cornerback heading into the 2019 season.

The Jets took a flyer on this kid. 

Good athlete, two major knee injuries in two years. Nobody thought he would contribute in ‘19 when we drafted him. The Jets basically said he a long term project when they took him.

Being “cleared” to train for an NFL career is a lot different then being able to perform like you’ll have one. I get it, we’re short at CB, but let’s calm down with this kid. If he even gets to dress for a game this season, that would be a huge step for him.

Right. This is about it 14.
It’s good news he was cleared. Sure. That means he is cleared to begin using his body in athletic manner again. Not that he is cleared to suddenly be our savior at CB.

Psssst.... By the way.... he will most likely never be a starter for the jets. Sorry folks.

Possible 1st or 2nd round pick in the 6th? Tall press coverage CB?

Even IF he was healthy he was never considered a 1st or 2nd round talent

He could be a Jaylon Smith type? Derailed by injury, rehabs, becomes a legit NFL player, why not? It's rare but it does happen.

What’s with you two?

Austin is someone 99% of the people on this board ever heard of before we drafted him, including me. And you two (please don’t try to tell me you did). 

I had read somewhere that after his sophomore year, if he continued on his arc, he would have possibly been a 1st or 2nd round pick. 

Because I can’t find a link to it does not mean that it does not exist. Maybe it was a Rutgers article. Maybe his mother wrote it. Maybe I wrote it then read it myself. 

Why the f*ck do you guys care. 

Geezuz.

Because you clearly stated something so off the wall as a fact and could not support it with evidence.

ya.

people are going to dismiss it.

It really has nothing to do with caring about what you read.

So...you think I made it up? To what end. 

How about you prove that it doesn’t exist. 

I need to see a trillion search results. 

And paper ones too. 

Yeah, it might have been in an article I read in a magazine with no on-line content. 

I need proof that it doesn't exist. Not just a cursory search. Exhaustive all encompassing end of the Earth research because that’s the only way to prove that it doesn’t exist.

If you didn't say he was considered a first or second round talent we wouldn't be having this conversation.....but you did.

No reason to get your panties in a bunch. I'm sure we're all pulling for him to be a good CB for the Jets, but it still doesn't change the fact that he was never considered that type of prospect.

Your on Peace frog for not providing a link. i did. Why don't the doubter's read it. day two of the NFL Draft, includes rounds 2 and 3. I have more links to post if you would like. You haven't read the 1st one. Why bother.

I read that article. Round 2 or 3. And that was written after he had his ACL injuries about what he could have been. Is it that far-fetched that someone could have projected him as a day 1 or 2 pick? We’re talking about draft projections for a guy with multiple ACLs. 

I’m unclear as to the faux outrage. I read something that I admitted I could not find. I didn’t make it up. I don’t care enough about him to make it up other than I’m rooting like hell for him. 

Folks are saying what I read does not exist. Anywhere in the universe. 

I just asked for proof that it does not exist, which cannot be proven. 

Again. I can’t find it but I know I read it somewhere and I’m not senile enough to have made it up. Could have been in a Rutgers flyer I picked up at Shoprite. Could have been an Instagram post by his college roommate. 

I’m still mystified why these guys care that much about a throw away comment on the internet. 

PROVE IT OR RETRACT IT PEACEFROG!

Ahhh, how about no.

A bunch of draft scouts had him as a day 2 talent, if not for the knee injuries. If he's a day two talent, he's drafted in the 2nd or 3rd rd. Right??

Absolutely. 

Yet there was ONE guy who had him day 1 or day 2. 

Again, why would I make this up? 

I don’t get it.

Btw, I’m sitting in the ER, with someone getting IV fluids so I can do this all night. 

Breaks up the boredom. 

Its such a stupid thing for these guys to get all indignant about. 

Again, not sure why they care all that much. Seems petty.

Because your link is from Scarlett Nation and is written by their beat writer. Not once does he quote a scout or anyone with any credibility when he mentions that blurb.

What makes the article even worse, if that was possible, was him mentioning Charlie Campbell as a source earlier in the article. Charlie Campbell!

In the end Austin was never considered a 1st or 2nd rounder unless @Peace Frog  read it on one of his fortune cookies that he forgot too save.

He was never considered a 1st rd pick. I'll post more links where based on his skill's before the injury, he was considered a day 2 prospect. You more than most know damn well the difference in talent between a mid 1st rounder and a 2nd rounder, isn't that much. Hell, if your drafted in the 3rd rd your expected to be a starter in the league, in short order. No

So if it was in a fortune cookie, it did, in fact, exist. 

Thank you.

We need to be sellers at the trade deadline. If they think they can catch the Braves with that roster, they're hooked to that Dilaudid.
