Tavon Austin: "I think I'm the all-around best player in the draft."

Tavon Austin: 'I'm the all-around best player in the draft'
Robert Klemko, USA TODAY Sports5:09p.m. EST February 22, 2013


INDIANAPOLIS Former West Virginia do-it-all wide receiver Tavon Austin says he's the best player available in the NFL draft.

He says he's the fastest player here, too.

"If we all lined up and raced, I think I'd come out on top, but I'm not really a 40 type of guy. I'm a game type of guy," Austin says. "A lot of teams are looking for the type of player who can do multiple things on the field, and I think I can be that guy.

"I think I'm the all-around best player in the draft."

COMBINE: Five players who could rise

A potential NFL slot receiver and kick returner, Austin is projected to go in the bottom of the first round in April. He models his game after Wes Welker, but says he's quicker and faster than the New England Patriots wide receiver.

Austin has yet to run a 40-yard dash or bench press 225 pounds at the scouting combine, and says his goal is to run under 4.4 and to rep 15 times. He measured in at 5-8, 174 pounds, and says his fastest-ever 40 time was 4.29 seconds.

He says he'd like to be two inches taller, but it "wasn't in God's plan." Still, he questions those who would equate his size to durability concerns.

"It shouldn't be a problem," he says. "I haven't gotten hurt or missed a game in eight years, so my durability should be really good."

Austin, who owns every major high school rushing record in Maryland, gained 4,444 career yards rushing and receiving in four seasons at West Virginia, including 1,100-plus receiving yards in his junior and senior seasons.

He grew up a fan of his hometown Baltimore Ravens and the Patriots, but says, "I'd like to go anywhere that calls my name. And hopefully I'll be there for a while."

not it's not ... He is not McCluster at all

Just because both guys are small doesn't mean they are the same.

Austin is FAST, DmC is quick
Austin is a WR that is elusive enough to be used at RB/KR
DmC is not a natural WR and is not elusive at all


Austin is an impact type guy, DmC is just a quick/tough guy who is learning to be a WR.

02:00 – Marshall Faulk thinks University of West Virginia wide receiver Tavon Austin is Wes Welker and Percy Harvin rolled into one. Can the prospect make an immediate impact in the NFL?

Austin is nothing like McCluster.

McCluster's speed score, which factored his size in with his 40 was the worst of the entire combine, and no player in NFL history with his speed score ever amounted to anything. The best was Aaron Stecker, who was always a #3 RB/mediocre KR.

Austin is fast as hell.

Yup. Welker 2.0, if you will.

the only thing he has in common with DMC is size.


McCluster is not fast. Tavon Austin is FAST.

comparisons to Darren Sproles, Percy Harvin, Wes Welker. You take this guy if there is no QB you like. He has "it"

Man, if this dude is still there in the 2nd he'd be a great pick up. Especially if we get Geno.
