Tavon Austin not just a workout warrior Dan Leberfeld
West Virginia WR Tavon Austin clocked a 4.34 forty at the Combine.
That is pretty impressive.
But this guy isn’t just a workout warrior – he’s a very good football player.
“Fast guys run fast, and it’s not a story,” said Mike Mayock (NFL Network). “So I expected him to run fast. But what it does for him is that worst-case to me, he’s a second-round pick. Worst case. If you can get him enough touches every game for him, he might be a first-round pick.
“The NFL has evolved into more and more of a college look; spread the field, get the football in the playmakers’ hands, and that’s what he is. He’s a play-maker, he’s a mismatch. I can only imagine being a nickel [back] or
a safety and having to line up across from him in a slot knowing he runs a 4.35, knowing how
quick he is.
“He’s really a difficult matchup and that‟s what this league is. So I think all that time does is just endorses exactly what we thought of him on tape.”
