Rams selected West Virginia WR Tavon Austin with the No. 8 overall pick.
The Rams gave up a lot for Austin, sending the No. 16 and 46 overall picks and a seventh-rounder to the Bills. Austin (5-8, 174) caught 215 balls for 2,475 yards (11.5 YPR) and 20 touchdowns over his final two college seasons, also rushing 88 times for 825 yards (9.4 YPC) and four more scores. He scored five career return touchdowns, four on kickoffs and one on a punt. Austin ran 4.34 in Indy with a 10-foot broad jump and 4.01 short shuttle, the second fastest of all receivers. Although not quite as physical as Percy Harvin, Austin possesses similar versatility, elusiveness, and explosive burst. Pencil him as a four-down game-changer that should lead the Rams in targets as a rookie. Thu, Apr 25, 2013 09:14:00 PM
