    Because Tavon Austin is not going to be there in the 3rd round. You can make that argument with any position and player. QB is about the only position where you can't find numerous examples of Pro Bowl players in the mid and late rounds.

    And you still have Tom Brady, Kurt Warner, etc.

    Yes, it's my opinion. I've watched every single game that Ace has played. I loved the kid when he was a freshman but Ace's future as a WR is very iffy. He might be able to be a solid slot WR but more likely, he's a guy who sticks on rosters in the NFL as a returnman. Even still, he doesn't have anywhere near Austin's athleticism and WR skills.

    Goodwin has speed and lots of it. But again, doesn't come close to Austin's running ability and movement skills. Doesn't have the same sort of natural WR skills either. He's basically a go route WR at this stage.

    Would Austin have been the same as Ace? No, he would have been far better.

    I don't care if he's the same "type" of player as those two. He's the same "type" of player as DeSean Jackson as well. Austin Pettis is the same "type" of player as AJ Green.

    The difference is that Austin like Green is far more skilled and far more talented than the guys he's being compared to.

    As for him being a 3 down player...if Danny can be a 3 down player for us...Austin can be too if we want him to be.
