Well first off the 49ers don't need a midget slot receiver.
I just wish Austin was 5-6 inches taller and about 45 lbs heavier in build that would be just perfect with those explosive playmaking skills.
Then i'd trade up to just about anywhere in the 1st round to get an elite wideout like that.
Yeah i just wish Tavon Austin was built like this wideout prospect...
Everyone is entitled to his opinion.
You prefer a one year wonder
because he is taller and heavier than the midget
Baalke has said that medical records, personality and game tape are the most important considerations when evaluating a player.
In his one year at Tennessee, Patterson played against three schools that are not in the SEC, schools that I believe are in the FCS.
If we compare Patterson's work as a receiver against those three schools (Georgia St, Troy, and Akron) with his same work against three of the top SEC schools (Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi St)
Non SEC schools --- 14 receptions for 310 yards and 1 score
3 Top SEC schools-- 5 receptions for 80 yards and 1 score.
Georgia-- 2 receptions for 31 yards and 0 scores
Alabama--1 reception for 24 yards and 0 scores
Miss St--- 2 receptions for 25 yards and 1 score.
I think the midget is a better option.
