    Is Tavon Austin THE Guy?

    "Casserly on #Rams at 16: "Seems Rams aren't content to sit there. Ppl they've talked to in trades think the guy they want is Tavon Austin."

    Re: Is Tavon Austin THE Guy?

    Hmm, no, I wouldn't say T.A. is 'THE' guy.

    I'm borrowing from AV's '20 Thoughts' thread to facilitate my answer on this one. Hope you don't mind...

    2. There has been a lot of talk over the last couple of months about Tavon Austin. My conclusion is, I'd love to hear his name called at #16, but I have no interest (despite toying with the idea previously) in trading up to get him.

    3. In fact, I don't really see a need to trade up for any player in the first round.

    5. With all the recent negativity about Cordarrelle Patterson, he is still the number 2 guy on my board. He may have the smallest "route tree" among the top WRs, but there is nobody else in this draft who can win a jump ball with a DB, then juke three defenders out of their shoes, all in one play.

    6. If the Rams end up with DeAndre Hopkins, Terrance Williams or Justin Hunter instead of Austin or Patterson, that would be fine. I don't think the drop-off is that big.

    7. Keenan Allen is the wild card. He could very well be "underdrafted" due to his nagging injuries. I wouldn't rule him out completely.

    All reports coming out in this hour are nothing more then speculation.

    i think we need to go with Austin if he's still there ... And then get the defensive BPA with 22..

    Picking Austin at 16 is a good choice.

    Trading picks away to move up and get Austin, I'm not as crazy about.

    Wait, I thought Hopkins was THE guy?

    This draft stuff is confusing, man.

    Please don't make Austin the Guy... Sooner or later he will get crushed in the NFL...

    Okay, I confess: I hope T.A. is selected before #16 and that the Rams will go for K. Allen or C. Patterson with their first pick.

    My sentiments mirror Nick's. At #16 I dont really have any problems with Austin, but moving up I'd have some issues with.

    Hunter, Woods, and perhaps Allen if fully recovered could make solid pro's in time. Tavon Austin has the most day one potential with his versatility. One thing nobody mentions about Patterson is how often the dude catches with his body. He might be Braylon Edwards at the next level...
