One NFL Scout told the NFL Network's Albert Breer that West Virginia senior WR Tavon Austin is a "niche-type" player.
The same scout went on to compare Austin to Dexter McCluster and added, "how do you use him? Here's how: You find a way. He's a package guy, though, and you take him knowing you have to design things for him." Another evaluator called Austin a "smaller Percy Harvin." The senior's electric ability is undeniable, and he will be best suited to be matched with a creative offensive coordinator that gets him in space.
