Tavon Austin does not have great speed? Dumbest this i have ever read. He is the fastest football players I have ever seen.
1) QB Geno Smith, West Virginia The knock on Geno Smith continues to be his size. He lacks the typical frame for a starting NFL quarterback.He’s a pocket passer and not a prototypical scrambler per se, which does translate well into Andy Reid’s style of offense. Also, this presents a huge problem when it comes to his ability to absorb hits and remain uninjured. Next, his throwing mechanics needs plenty of work, since he slings the ball at a 3/4th cut rather than the traditional overhead throw.Smith also lacks good side to side agility which casts a major problem in avoiding getting sacked at the next level. He’s a pocket version of Pat White, slower, less agility, but a stronger arm with an equally small frame. None of these translates to a star in the NFL, one good smack and he could be riding pine for the season.Huh? Geno Smith.....6-3 220 lbs.
Tavon Austin would be a bust if you're looking for a #1 WR, but people are already looking at him as a slot receiver. Also, there's already a handful of players his size who have shown that they can produce at an NFL level without always being hurt, so size isn't a concern. One thing I do agree about though is his speed. He may have elite speed, but I rarely saw it while looking at his game tape. He is more shifty with good vision than speedy. The only thing I would be worried about is Freeman throwing terrible passes over the middle that get him blown up.
If history repeats itself, one of the QB's will ermerge out of this draft a star. I don't think it will be Geno though. I get the Jamarcus vibe off of Geno.
