This Austin dude will get pushed around by these Cbs in the NFC West

This ^ but we are wasting our time trying to get through to these keyboard football draft prospect geniuses who think the 49ers would actually trade up for this 5'8 172lb midget slot guy Austin. Austin is going to get absolutely mauled in the NFL against the big boys! 49ers have learned their lesson the hard way with midget size players with LaFumble James who not only coughs up the football when he gets rocked but also goes down faster than an elevator at initial contact.

Zero chance...zero...the 49ers trade up for another manchild size slot receiver with smallish slot receivers Manningham Jenkins & Williams already on the roster!!!!! And they also just reworked Manningham's contract they want him back.

If the 49ers decide to trade up for any receivers in the 1st round it will be for the bigger wideout and the #1 ranked WR in the draft 6'2 216lb Cordarrelle Patterson who can move into a starting WR position after Boldin's 1 and out and if Crabtree bolts for a bigger offer down the road. That is what makes perfect sense if they decide to trade up. They need another wideout to backup and take over and play with Crabtree & Boldin especially if either of them gets injured. If Keenan Allen runs a 4.4 before the draft he could be another wideout prospect the 49ers might target by trading up.

But like I said waste of time trying make logical points regarding player evaluations and the 49ers team needs with the same fools who relentlessly for weeks said Alex Smith would be released or dealt for a 4th to 7th round draft pick... LMAO...so time to logout and head to the gym.

It's always so interesting to see someone bash "fools" on this and go on to make their own assumptions on how a player will be in the NFL. That Austin will get mauled. Nobody knows how this guy will be at the pro level.. And I agree about the 49ers not trading up for him.. But to write him off? Please. The dude is amazingly talented. Percy Harvin is small but he blazes the NFL. Desean Jackson. Sproles. You can go on and on.

Totally agree his lack of knowledge is insulting lol Crabree is a 49er for life. The Pistol is in fashion and Austin fits what the 49ers want to do. Would love to see him along side CK7
My In-Laws said he ran a 4.18 40 at his pro day, can anyone confirm or deny this? If true

What's it cost you to show people a little respect?

And btw for someone who seems so unforgiving and judgmental, you sure said a lot of things that made me double take/scratch my head.

A) "la fumble James..." I'm sure Harbaugh and baalke are glad to have him on our team and he looks like he'll be a perfect rb to pair with Kap when we have read option heavy game plans. If you want to write a guy off after one fumble in the Super Bowl of his rookie year, go right ahead.

B) you say manningham, Jenkins and Williams are all slot receivers when only Kyle Williams actually is. Manningham primarily works the outside and that is what aj Jenkins was drafted to do as well. Aj Jenkins is not at all a shifty slot guy, he's much better before the catch than after. Manningham is a bit shiftier than aj but even in Ny with Cruz and nicks he still primarily worked the outside. He's an outside receiver. Kw is the only receiver we have who compares to tavon and he is not even close to tavons level.

C) you say the 9ers don't need a slot receiver, we need a real receiver and then you say we should trade up for Patterson?? Have you seen this guy play at all? He's talented as hell and a beast with the ball in his hands but he is raw as can be as a wr. Consistently lets balls get Into his chest and doesn't run great routes. He's got potential to be a great receiver but he's easily more raw than tavon just as a pure receiver. (Don't get me wrong, would love to have him just thinks its asinine to not like tavon because he's not seen as a traditional receiver and then say lets trade up for one of the rawest wrs in the draft)

D) you say IF keenan Allen runs a 4.4 before the draft he'd be a good target- lol, not even gonna spend too much time on this one. Seems like you put a lot of value in actual performance in games.

I said in the PL thread that I haven't seen open field change of direction like that since Barry Sanders. His agility is something special. He just explodes out of his cuts, can stop on a dime, and go from 0 -60 immediately. He would be so dangerous in this offense.

Agree 100%, He has RARE change of direction ability.

Hate to break it to you, but you're no different than the people that you're mocking.

As an officially certificated fool, (talk about insulting), I whole heartedly advocate the drafting of midgets.

This midget has never missed a college game.

In the last three years, Tavon Austen has had 135 plays over 35 yards:

57 plays of 30+ yards
33 plays of 40+ yards
16 plays of 50+ yards
12 plays of 60+ yards
10 plays of 70+ yards
4 plays of 80+ yards
3 plays of 90+ yards

That is just absurd.

Peterson is far from small..he is one of the better built CB's in football, he just doesn't use his strength over 5 yards down the field since its illegal. If he did what Browner and Sherman do, he'd give Crabs trouble too and if Sherman and Browner played within the RULES, Crabs would work them like he works Peterson..

I said rams CBs are small dude both 5'10" were just going to be physical with our Wrs Crabs n Boldin now we need that quick n fast slot guy that giive defense nightmares like amendola did to us

There seems to be a common assumption that since Tavon Austin is a midget, he will miss games and he is more likely to fumble.

Austin is often compared to Percy Harvin who just signed with Seattle.

In four years at West Virginia, Tavon Austin never missed a game.
In three years at Florida, Percy Harvin missed 5 games.

Tavon Austin had 7 fumbles in 52 games.
Percy Harvin had 5 fumbles in 36 games.

Austin is the first. HoneyBadger in the second. That would be awesome

there is not a chance in hell we take a WR in the 1st round. We already have 5 making the team plus Lockette/Hall

Rams have "small" DB's (although 5'10 is average for a CB) but they are very physical..size doesn't have much to do with anything, it's more about physicality ..Rams just put a ton of pressure on the QB and that plus the havoc their DB's cause at the line, is what gave us problems. I think they are more legit than SEA with that combination, I just think SEA does a great job of getting away with extended jamming and bumping

Lockette or Hall is making the team? Well then why even have training camp. Fact of the matter is we have two players coming off serious knee injuries, a second year guy who hasn't caught an NFL pass, and a couple guys who have done next to nothing on the outside looking in. Aside from Boldin and Crabtree, we have a whole bunch of question marks. Austin is a game changer who not only steps in from day one as the third guy, potentially more, and also takes over a lackluster return game.
