I like Austin but not at #17. If he was taller and heavier and still had the same speedhe would be a top 10 pick but hhe's to short for me to pick that early.

Don't be shocked in NE drafts him. Why? Wes Welker. Think about it. Similar size, similar skills, makes sense.

As for the Steelers, it makes 0 sense.

Good looking highlight reel. Definitely a top pick talent for somebody. As for as the Steelers goes, as good as those moves looked on film, none of them were on grass, and we ALL know about the grass at Heinz. Like Sanders, this is a guy that would flourish in a Dome.

And yeah, I can see him in NEs system too, unfortunately.

BTW, something else I picked up watching this demo was number a # 81 ( Woods) was making some killer down field blocks.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q_Iab2H4WD8 We're all familiar with the field he's playing at during 6:25 of the video.

I had the luxury of seeing every home game he played in his Junior and senior season and the blocking of the other WVU receivers was extremely underrated. Stedman especially, but he can do it all, including being our best ST's tackler.

Wasnt Chris Rainey supposed to be a big deal in Haley's offense?

Why does it make no sense? He's a dynamic playmaker and adds another wrinkle to our offense. For a fanbase that wants this offense to get more creative and branch out it's playbook, ripping on someone like Austin doesn't make a lot of sense.

I agree, this team needs some playmakers.

Tavon Austin is a playmaker.

I'm not saying is isn't a play maker, but you got to admit, he's not going to making those cuts at Heinz with the turf we have.

1. AB can & already does make those types of cuts.

2. Assuming he cutting ability is indeed reduced by some degree, the ability by the defense to "recover" is also reduced by the same degree.

3. Eight games are played away... and so is the SuperBowl.
