Why You Should Acquire Tavon Austin Everywhere You Can

Many people believe that Tavon Austin’s NFL career has been a huge failure. The former seventh overall pick has largely underwhelmed in his first two seasons, producing only 1,035 yards and seven total TDs. He failed to register a receiving touchdown last year, and only had 242 receiving yards. At 5-8, 176 pounds, the odds have always been stacked against Austin. Many believed he was too short and too light to justify such a high pick, and that at his size he would need “manufactured touches” to get him the ball. To this point these people have been correct. But, everything seemed to change for Austin once Todd Gurley got going for the Rams.
