    I like Tavon Austin a lot, he has the potential to be a Percy Harvin-esque player in the NFL if he plays to his upside. I don't think he's a great fit for our offense, though--he's more of a shifty slot guy than a downfield burner.

    For our offense, I actually prefer the other WR out of WVU--Stedman Bailey. He is an incredible deep threat--speed to burn, outstanding body control, tracks the ball perfectly in the air, and he is one of the best route runners in all of college football. I think he could have a HUGE career in the NFL.

    I would be all over Stedman Bailey in the 3rd round or possibly even the 2nd, although that's a bit high.... my hope is that he tests poorly at the Combine and slides based on his measurables, which probably won't be very impressive.

    I'm pretty sure Bailey is in the Top 3 WR for CFB. Size, coordination, and hands.

    Too many bigger, quality WRs on the board for Austin to go in the 1st round. Someone will take him in the 2nd though.

    Elusive cats like Jerrigan (currenlty trapped behind Cruz on the NYG depth chart), Cobb, Hilton and Austin should be consistently overvalued (i.e., taken a round earlier than whatever value your Draft formula tells you), b/c they are match-up nightmares for DCs. They exploit slow DBs alone, exploit poor tackling DBs alone, and exploit poor schemes alone...and that's all before accounting for the plays that they will make against good competition b/c that's what they naturally do.

(Manning ran a hybrid AC/unique vertical offense that Caldwell helped design.) If Cam goes, Caldwell will likely be considered to replace him, as will the likely to be fired Norv Turner (or someone from his likely to be fired staff.)

    Also, I was very clear in my post that I was only basing this on probabilities. I never said we would definitely do anything. But IF we don't overhaul our entire offensive philosophy, then Tavon Austin does not fit our offensive needs.
    It seems to me like this organization likes to remain average-above average - so long as we make the playoffs every year, everyone is fine with that.

    We will go no where with our "content" attitude. Its weird, the fan base thinks this way and the organization thinks this way. Absolutely no fire what-so-ever
