    I know there was a thread on here about him a couple of weeks ago but after tonight I felt it fitting to make another. This kid is Sproles & Harvin mixed into one, I think he had over 400+ yards all purpose against OU. He could replace Felix & Otree with just one roster spot.

    Think he'd help the O just a little?:laugh1: He could probably be had in round 2 because he is small.

    I'm with ya we need help on the Dline or Oline round 1 but if he's on the board in round 2 Jerry & Co need to pull the trigger on him. My only fear is after he runs his 40 at the combine his stock will go sky high.

    572 all-purpose yards and a sick td run from the 5 yard line kid is gonna be a star.

    He is terrific. I don't know how to project him in the draft. He is very small even compared to Sproles and Harvin.

    Sproles 5-6, 187

    Harvin 5-11, 192
    Desean Jaskson 5-10, 169

    Tavon Austin 2012 Stats (10 games):

    He's one of the best open field runners I've ever seen at the college level, like watching a Peter Warrick re-incarnate.

    i have to agree. The only problem is ....would we use him properly?
    IMO we don't throw Murray the ball nearly enough. He destroyed it in college catching passes out of the backfield and in the flat. How many passes have we thrown him in two years....about 40.
    One thing often overlooked was Emmitt's pass catching and the impact he had as a receiver. '92 NFC champ' game is a good example, as was about any other really important game. He never got much credit for that but we broke teams spirits a lot of times with throwing him short passes.

    I like WR S.Bailey and think he could be a guy that goes under the radar and some team is going to get a steal when try draft him.

    Ill take him.

    The league is transitioning to more of a spread it out style. I'd hate to see a team like Washington or Atlanta get him.

    Absolutely another RB is needed.

    Chip Kelly could make good use of him.

    This draft will have a lot of good WR available. I like Patterson, he can do it all too. I also like Terrence Williams as a all around route running WR.

    I love Tavon Austin, but I don't know if he would get enough snaps per game to justify a 2nd round pick considering the needs in the trenches.

    On the flip-side, if Cordarrelle Patterson were available in the 2nd round, it would be very difficult to pass on him. This is his 1st year at Tennessee and he is therefore raw at route running and knowing the system; however, he is a spectacular athlete and could easily develop into a #1 WR.

    The team would need to do a detailed mental analysis of him to verify that he is just young/inexperienced and not resistant to coaching like Dez.

    Despite being 6-3, 205, he is also a Kick and Punt returner.

    Would be ideal player for our new Head Coach Chip Kelly. Would be exciting to watch Cowboy football again.

    Stedman reminds me Steve Smith (Carolina) with his route running & deceptive deep speed. Plus Stedman probably has the surest hands in this years draft class.

    To bad you traded your future away for a gadget QB. They'll both be gone before the Raiders...I mean Redskins get on the clock.
