    Wes Welker?

    He went undrafted in 2004. I think Deshaun Jackson is a much better comparison for Austin.

    And then the Patriots gave the Dolphins a 2nd for Welker.

    I'll put it this way....I would take WR Tavon Austin in the first round over 3-4 DE Ziggy Hood or 3-4 DE Cam Heyward.

    I would hope so, those guys weren't picked at #17 either.

    Chadman would take Cordarelle Patterson & Keenan Allen before contemplating Austin.

    Austin can play though. Not sure if he's #17 worthy, but he can play.

    I think Tavon is more of a First Rounder than Geno. Geno will be a BUST, bank on it.

    I don't think he will be a "bust" but more of a Carson Palmer/Phillip Rivers who puts up numbers in garbage time but never wins any important games.

    I think the only receiver I would want in the 1st round this year would be Keenan Allen. He is the tough kinda of receiver that this team needs. He would almost add a Hines Ward mentality back into that unit. Especially with Heath being out to start the year in all likelihood, the team will need someone to take over in the ability to get the tough receptions on 3rd down to continue drives.

    I would say that if he is developed like Aaron Rogers. Behind a vet for a couple years he will excel. If he is thrown into the fire like RGIII or Luck last year I think he will struggle.
