    We need to replace Britt next year, we should be looking for a bigger guy on the outside rather than a slot guy with the 10th pick.

    Is LSU of 2 years ago considered a bad defense?

    I can think of 7 good reasons not pick Austin- the number of points on his Wonderlic :rimshot:

    Austin would indeed be a bad pick for us but how can people say he's the product of a system? His main selling points are his incredible speed, elusiveness, and open field running. Last time I checked those are god-given abilities no system could provide you.

    He was the 2nd most productive WR on his team. He is dumber than a rock.

    You never draft a WR because of his running abilities. You never take a catch and run WR this high in the draft.

    A creative OC can utilize this kid and destroy defenses. He is a homerun hitter just like CJ. Give him the ball in space and he can take it to the house.

    I'm never said we or anyone should take him high in the draft. My point was to challenge the assertion that he's a "product of a system" not that he should got in the top 15. He should be taken right around the same position Percy Harvin was taken, they're very similar prospects.

    I think offenses in the NFL have changed to the point where notions like "you never take a small/shifty/whatever WR that early" are now completely outdated.

    Austin's skill set is exactly what teams are looking for these days. He will be a very powerful weapon for some offense.

    Doubt the Titans take him, though.

    I would rather get Justin Hunter if he is available in the second.
