Only One (Tavon Austin Senior Highlights) (via dougitydog)
Many of you guys started Mocking Tavon Austin to the Rams a few weeks back. I was still locked onto my Tyler Eifert pick and did not think you guys were anywhere in the ballpark. Now, I see that I was wrong. The above highlights prove that pretty effectively.
I am not going to lie this is the first time I have watched significant film on Tavon. This video up top is the best one I found. He is Electric, he is blazing, he is a scoring machine. He looks fast. When he runs he looks like a streak. 4.34 speed, that is what he has working for him.
You worried about his size? Well guess what, it is reported that he has never missed a practice while at West Virginia, plus when he can't get any more yards he plays it smart, he runs out of bounds or goes down. A wimp you might say? Prolonging a career says I.
Where does this guy fit in with the Rams? I would say he it is a good chance Jeff Fisher will put him in the slot. Once you get the ball in this guys hands he is gone.
Now, we all know this guy is fast and elusive. But what about Character? Well word going around the NFL community is that he is a "we, us" guy. He is a real team player. Gossip like that is worth a grain of salt, but watch these highlights I have here, tell me what you see after every touchdown, heck, after every play! He gives the balls to the refs.
I at first wanted the Rams to stay FAR FAR away from this guy, but now that I see what he can do, I implore the Rams office to snatch this guy at the 16th pick. The Ram's offense needs this guy!
He can go with my other favorite receiver in the draft, Ryan Swope. But that is for my next article. And as far as similaritie, the 4.34 40 yd dash is all they have in common.
