    No. I didn't get to watch that game. OU has frustrated the hell out of me the past few years so I haven't been as ardent of an OU fan as a Dallas Cowboys fan. I try not to ever miss a Cowboys game.

    I hope that Vacarro isn't the pick for us at #18.

    Mike Wallace/Percy Harvin type.

    Not as physically big as either guy but both quick and fast; purely explosive.

    Like Devin Hester with actual ball skills.

    The guy in this draft with the best pure fast-twitch athleticism.

    Vaccaro has top 5 of this class fast-twitch athleticism and he had to give Austin a 10 yard cushion and use angles to corral him.

    I don;t want Dallas to draft him because we have so many other needs but this guy will score a lot of NFL touchdowns.

    Warrick ran a 4.58 40 at the combine....

    Austin a 4.3x 40.

    They are not all that similar athletically.

    Warrick did beat up college football and especially his junior year was great but Austin was even better and never redshirted.

    Warrick and Randy Moss together would have been ridiculous.
