I agree, but maybe the Football Gods step in like last year when we picked up DeCasrto and we land one of them.
Eifert would elevate our offense, but some here feel we have the great Mark Bavarro and Dave Casper already on the roster with Spaeth and Paulson.:D
You know, Paulson played well last year, it's hard to knock a 7th round pick for getting on the field and making a few plays his rookie year. That's not bad. I read somewhere where Ertz had small hands, then I thought "didn't Sweed have small hands". I did some research, sure enough he did. Now that doesn't mean Ertz won't be a great pro, Limas had some pretty serious issues but it does make me wonder a little bit.
The only people tackling him are his teammates in the endzone. No he isn't too tall, and no he isn't a big bodied receiver, but what he is...IS ELECTRIC !
Tavon Austin's Stats against top level teams with players in the NFL that he will meet or has already met on the field. This is just a small sample and I left most of the Big East teams off the list.

With that said I am not saying the Steelers need to draft him in the first round. We will go Defense this year, but if it were to happen for some reason, I would have zero concern about it. Stedman Bailey in the third would be a good WR pick up for us.
IMO if the defensive players we are interested in are off the board we could easily go WR or... even TE. IMO, it will be BPA in round 1.
My name is Blacknblue80s and I am not afraid of Tavon Austin.
