    Tavon austin...stedman bailey

    IF THE STEELERS ARE SMART THEY WILL GET BOTH OF THESE GUYS , all the questions about size are ignorant ..barry sanders was only 5'8 200 lbs thats not big at all.... In my opinion Stedman Bailey will be the steal of the draft

    Wouldn't mind having both of those guys... and agree that size is overrated. If they could get Bailey in the 3rd, that would be a steal of a pick.

    You say size is overrated, and you call yourself "Big"?

    Sorry--no offense--it just strikes me as funny...

    Not much difference in 2-3" in height and 15 lbs in body weight when you have linebackers hitting you that weigh 260lbs, bench 450, run a 4.6 40 yard dash.

    Wow...then I'd say that the title "big" describes you very well.

    Different era my friend. Those were the days of 225 lb LBs and 280 DL. Freakin safeties are 230 lbs nowadays. Big is in, small is not.

    Add to that- even at the larger sizes, these guys are quicker than ever.

    Tavon Austinís pre-draft dance card is full

    Posted by Mike Florio on April 10, 2013



    How much interest has West Virginia receiver Tavon Austin generated among NFL teams? So much that he has had to decline some invitations for pre-draft visits.

    Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Austin has visited or will visit the Rams, Bengals, Buccaneers, 49ers, and Jets.

    The Jets are an intriguing option, given that they hold the ninth overall pick in the draft ó and could end up with the 13th overall selection.

    Austinís floor could be No. 16 to the Rams, a team that desperately needs playmakers.

    I think there's a good chance Austin is gone before we pick at 17.
