He’s small, but he’s an impact player. As one G.M. privately put it at the Scouting Combine, “He runs like he has a rocket in his ass.”
West Virginia receiver Tavon Austin could be riding that rocket all the way to the top 10.
Currently, Austin’s sweet spot widely is believed to be somewhere between 13 with the Jets and 16 with the Rams. As the start of the draft approaches, that range could be going up, into the bottom of the first 10 picks.
One source who has demonstrated to us in the past that he is as plugged in as anyone when the draft approaches believes that Austin will indeed be one of the first 10 players selected.
Whether the source is right or wrong will be determined soon. Either way, it’ll be fun to watch.
