8. Rams – WR Tavon AustinPosted: April 25, 2013
West Virginia Senior
Measurables: 5’9″ 174 lbs 30″ arm length
NFL Combine: 4.28 40-yard 14 bench reps
NFL Comparison: Percy Harvin
Austin is an electrifying receiver — one that was originally projected to the Rams at a later pick in the midst of his meteoric rise after an impressive NFL Combine performance.
While some scouts compare Austin to Packers receiver Jordy Nelson, I’m more partial to comparisons to Harvin — a receiver who uses his explosiveness to make big plays from both the slot and outside on deep routes.
He’s versatile and he’s the most explosive player in the draft. Great pickup for St. Louis.
