    If he's wants a Boldin / Roddy White clone then DeAndre Hopkins is it. Very possible he'll be the best WR in this draft class and one of the "safer" offensive skill position picks overall.

    I think anyone slating Austin as the pick in round 1 hasn't been paying attention to the way the Steelers draft.
    Round 1-Rashaan Evans-ILB Alabama
    Round 2- Jessie Bates-FS Wake Forest
    Round 3- Kyzir White-SS West Virginia
    Round 5-Shaquem Griffin-OLB Central Florida
    Round 5b- Bo Scarborough-RB Alabama
    Round 7- Richie James-WR/slot/utility-MTSU
    Round 7b- Brett Toth-OT-Army

    He doesn't scare me.

    Wes Welker- 5' 10" 184 lbs
    DeSean Jackson 5"9" 175lbs
    Tavon Austin 5'8" 174lbs.

    I'd consider him at 17, but to be honest we have other needs elsewhere and can probably get his counter part Bailey later in the draft, or another WR. Put me down for the ND TE too or a db or lb.

    Tavon would play right away though returning punts, KO's, etc. explosive playmaker.

    Of all the 'high round' WR's available Chadman would take Markus Wheaton in Round 2 as the preference, or if his character holds up- DaRick Rogers.


    Starting to wish that Arians drafts Eifert at Arizona & buries him on the depth chart.

    He's great.

    So great in fact, he can line up at Center, snap to himself at QB, then throw the bubble to himself at TE, all the while blocking downfield in order to spring himself into the End Zone, where he'll high-5 himself & jump into a crowd populated by.... well, himself.

    He could go #1 overall, thinking about it..

    that's because he's an offensive player.

    if Eifert played on defense under LeBeau, it would take him 3 years to learn how to do all that...

    If he was on Defense, we wouldn't need to draft him yet. No point drafting a Defensive player before Round 6 if all they do is sit & learn for 12 years.

    Ertz in the 2nd would be better than Eifert in the first... i wouldn't totally groan at that because he's a better pass catcher than Eifert... furthermore, i don't see the point in a first round, starter quality TE when the team doesn't have one starter quality RB and only one starter quality ILB and Worilds is TBD (at a minimum, he needs competition)... Spaeth at TE is on the level of Foote at LB... Except, by mid-season, Spaeth will have a replacement... Foote needs one as well...
    I would be willing to wager that Eifert & Ertz are both gone by our 2nd pick (unless we trade).

    Jooser and pfelix72 are the only two people in this thread I agree with. Everyone else is wrong. If you are afraid of Tavon Austin it should be because another team drafted him and you now have to deal with him. Everyone here concerned about his durability and his size are just plain wrong. That is no an opinion. It is a fact.
