    He's electric too, probably more polished of the too but not quite as athletic.

I know the team has put a lot into the WR position but considering Boldin may be cut if he won't take a pay-cut, they might be in the market for a 3rd WR.

    He also would be a good value in the 2nd or 3rd round.
    With a new OC, we have a shot at Austin. Some will pass on his size, but like I've said before a Harvin, Jerrigan (stuck behind V. Cruz), Cobb or YA Hilton type guys are so incredibly valuable in the right system. Hell, I'd even throw Dexter McCluster in there...who's never been used well IMO. All YAC machines and match-up nightmares in the right system.

    Austin's BPA value should be higher than #25+ come April.

    He doesn't have that top end speed. However, he is a very good route runner.

    Kind of reminds me of Derrick Mason.

    I'll bet anyone on the board right now that if Tavon Austin is available when New England picks, he's a Patriot. Are you kidding; he'd take that Welker role and turn it up three notches. Bellicheat would be drooling on his hoodie.

    I have him going a lot earlier to the Rams.

    Western Kentucky's Andrew Jackson (ILB) is a serious man.

    6'1 265...but probably 6'0 and lighter.
    He's a collider AND he wraps up.
    Fast.
    Relentless.
    He could crawl out of bed and be our best run-stopper once the pads come on.
    I need to see tv/coaches tape and not highlights, but I'll give him 3rd round value due to size and school.

If he was 6'3" instead of 5'9", he'd likely be a hands down top 10 pick.

    Regarding Hankins - I too like him, but there is no way the Ravens would have a shot at him. He's going to be a top 10 pick. Jon Jenkins out of Georgia is a possibility.

    However, I really think that the Ravens are either going to go for Ogletree, Mosley, or an offensive lineman like Barrett Jones, Jon Cooper, or Chance Warmack in round 1.
    Wicked,

    What are your thoughts about Fisher for the O-Line? I hear he is very raw but has good size, is athletic and can definitely be a good LT if he is coached properly!

    I also really like Kevin Minter. That dude is ferocious.
    you mentioned Arthur brown, who I understand to have a 2nd 3rd round grade. Isn't he insanely better value there than ogletree in the first?

    Well, sure. However, Ogletree is 6'3" 240lbs and played safety until last year. It is going to be hard for any inside linebacker to compete with him athletically.

    However, Brown is a good football player. Id be stoked with either guy.

    I think he is a good prospect. He certainly has the size. Probably comparable to Nate Solder, but a little less refined.

    I dont think Fisher will be there when we pick. Lot of teams out there that need tackles.

    He will be long gone. If they trade up, it better be for Joeckel or T'eo.
