NFL Draft 2013 Rising Prospect – Tavon Austin

Draft Insiders’ 2013 NFL Draft Yearbook
Available Now - Over 300 Scouting Reports

Wideout Tavon Austin’s Scouting Report

Photo - WR Tavon Austin – West Virginia

Tavon Austin is a hot rising prospect entering the weeks before the NFL Draft 2013. His outstanding 2012 season and 2013 postseason has elevated him to a mid first round selection. His rare speed and quickness and natural running skills are ideal for the NFL game. He is earmarked to the Rams who hold two #1 picks, the 16th and 22nd overall selections. He would be an ideal fit for their young offense working with emerging QB Sam Bradford.

Tavon Austin #1- West Virginia -
5’9” 175 - Sp. 4.35 - Hindu Theory: Randall Cobb

Fast sure handed senior receiver/ returner completed an excellent career for WV, earning conference honors several time over his career. Tavon has been a consistently productive big play performer whether as a receiver, runner or return specialist. He combines explosive quickness and speed that allows him to make plays after the catch or returning kicks. He has shown consistent big play ability in those roles with the ability to make defenders miss or run away from them. Over his career, he has been a featured big play weapon for the wide open Mountaineer passing game and return units. He is a smallish all-purpose performer who has natural hands and running skills to fill a few key roles as a pro. He was a consistent playmaker in all roles and could earn the #3 job as a slot receiver early, in addition to both return duties. He is a reliable pass catcher who runs precise routes and displays sure hands that has allowed him to compensate for his lack of size. He is both quick and fast with the short area suddenness to create running room and hit an opening. He has top speed with the initial quickness to get into his routes nicely and the ability to make fast cuts at the break point and create consistent separation. He displays good AA and has a fine understanding of the passing game with the ability to adjust his routes and make the tough catch. He has the speed to get deep or take the short screen pass and make a big play using his natural running skills. Despite his marginal size, he displays the toughness and body control to make the difficult catch, take the big hit and hold on to the ball. He releases from the line quickly and fights thru the jam to get into his routes, though rarely tested as a collegian. After the catch, his top running ability makes things happen with his rare elusiveness to make defenders miss and speed to run away from tacklers. He is similar to the Packers’ Randall Cobb in speed, quickness, style and AA, though slightly smaller.
The Numbers: As a senior, he had 114 catches for 1289 yards for an 11.3 average and 12 TDs. He carried the ball 72 times for 680 yards and 3 TDs in addition to an 11 yard average as a punter returner with 1 TD and a 25.4 average as a KOR with 1 TD. It was a dynamic overall performance. As a junior, he had 101 catches for 1186 yards and 8 TDs for first team Big East. Over his career, he played in every game and had 288 catches for 3413 yards and 29 TDs and added 1070 yards rushing with 6 TDs and big plays as a returner. Over his career, he averaged 25 yards on kickoffs with 4 TDs with a 12 yard average as a punt returner including 1 TD. At the NFL Combine, he ran 4.34 and 4.36 times and did 14 reps. He had a 32” VL and a 10’ BJ with a 4.01 short shuttle. He performed very well in the receiving drills.
The Skinny: Very quick athlete with the ability to become an impact role player and probable starter. He is a good athlete with the talent to become an early RS with impact and game changing talent. He can be a slot receiver with the skill set to become a solid contributor. His top open field running skills gives his club a dangerous weapon in a number of roles. Highly-developed returner that must prove he can hold up to the physicality of the pro game, though he was rarely nicked up in college. He has the skill set to be a very good role player and he probably does not fall beyond the top 25 selections. Impact weapon in a few roles but must be used properly.

NFL Draft 2013 Yearbook Scouting Report - Quinton Patton

Draft Insiders’ 2013 NFL Draft Yearbook
Available Now - Over 300 Scouting Reports

Wideout Quinton Patton’s Scouting Report

Photo - WR Quinton Patton - Louisiana Tech

Quinton Patton #4 - 6’ 200 lbs. - Louisiana Tech - Speed 4.50 - Hindu Theory: Marvin Harrison
Fast athletic senior has been one of the premier receivers in the nation in the wide open Tech offense. Quinton had an unheralded playing career that includes a two time WAC first team performer after an acclaimed JC career at Coffeyville CC. As a receiver, he is highly developed and graded out well vs top cover men including a few SEC defenders. He is a fine athlete with the burst of speed to be a difference maker especially in the intermediate zones. With further refinement in key areas especially his overall strength, he has a chance to challenge for an early starting job in his pro career. He has shown a fine skill set with good AA, instincts for the position with excellent route running and defense recognition development. He separates very well in coverage to get open consistently with the ability to run crisp disciplined routes. He has very reliable hands to be a dependable target with a big receiving radius and able to make the difficult catch. His ability to get deep and run after the catch ability has earned him high grades showing the overall talent to be a #1 NFL receiver. He is very developed in key areas like route running and adjusting on the move while reading coverage. He comes back to the ball very well that helps his QB when under duress. He has good size and the leaping ability to work the sidelines and underneath routes with the savvy to find openings and sit in holes. He shows the potential to be a pro playmaker with developed skills of hands, route running and reading coverage. He must improve his overall strength to take the pounding as a pro when going over the middle. He has a lean frame that needs to fill out, though he has proven he can stay on his routes and take a hit and make the tough catch.
The Numbers: As a senior, he started all 12 games and caught 104 passes for 1392 yards for a 13.4 yard average and 13 TDs earning WAC first team honors. As a junior, he caught 74 passes for 1135 yards for a 15.3 yard average and 10 TDs and WAC honors. Over his earlier two year JC career, he had 73 catches for 996 yards and 7 TDs in 19 games, in addition to punting for a 39 yard average. At the NFL Combine, he ran two 4.53 times with a 1.58 ten yard split time and added 8 reps in the lifting. He added a 33” VL and 9’10” BJ with very good agility drills. He had a 4.01 short shuttle and a 6.91 three-cone times with good positional drills.
The Skinny: This highly developed receiver is one of the unheralded players in this draft class. He has big play talent with the natural skills. He displays playmaking ability to catch the deep ball with the vertical speed to stretch a defense. He is dangerous in the open field and has definite upside potential in the mold of Marvin Harrison in body type, size, speed, AA and LOD. Over his career, he made fine improvement and showed intriguing upside potential as an NFL receiver. His playmaking ability will warrant a high draft selection and probably a top 60 pick. He can win a role in three and four WR sets immediately if not a rookie starting job. Fast receiver with definite upside and the potential to be an NFL star with natural abilities. He has the talent to be an impact player with speed and refined receiving skills. Clubs like the Texans, Redskins and Dolphins interested.
