Ourlads' Profile:

2013 Guide: What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about TAVON AUSTIN: West Virginia, 5084 174 4.31. Three-year starter. An explosive and sudden inside receiver who cuts sharply with good body control. Gets to top speed quickly. A darter with a burst to separate and excellent change of direction qualities. A playmaker with speed, quickness, and field awareness. Quickness is more important than speed for an NFL receiver, and he has both. Sudden stop and start quickness. A slippery space athlete. Productive over his career. Led the country in all-purpose yards in 2012 with 198 yards per game. Broke out against the 12th rated defense of Oklahoma with 572 all-purpose yards. Durability and overall size is a concern. No receiver this size has ever been drafted in the first round of the NFL. Most years Austin would be a second or third round selection. Times are changing with wide open offenses. A tough guy with the mentality of a support corner. Best as an inside slot receiver. Limited position options. Talent to contribute early and provide impact play. Caught 288 passes in his career. 2012 stats: 114-1289, 11.3 ypr, 12 TD. OSR:9/37. First/second round. (A-30, H-9 1/8, VJ-32, SS-4.01).
