Clearly, Tavon Austin hasn't lived up to his billing of being a Top 10 overall pick of the 2013 NFL draft. He's shown flashes this season for the Rams, but playing under Brian Schottenheimer's system has suppressed his playmaking potential.
Obviously, he's still a developing rookie with tremendous upside. Unlike some hasty Rams fans, I wouldn't call him a bust just yet, which is why I don't think the Rams would accept anything less than a 1st rounder for him.
The fact that he had amazing chemistry with Geno Smith at West Virginia and the fact that the Jets were so bent upon drafting him (Rex had a plan for him and everything) could lead to him breaking out with us. He would undoubtedly thrive under Marty Mornhinweg's system.
After releasing Holmes and losing out on Cooks, OBJ, and Lee in this past draft, this would be a great way to make up for the lack of a playmaking wideout opposite Decker. Saunders, Evans, and Enuwa seem like great football players, but I don't think they would be effective enough to consistently thrive on the outside or on screens and jet sweeps.
This could be this season's huge Trent Richardson-level trade. Unless, of course, there is a huge WR in store for us in next year's draft. Thoughts?
