I just feel like Austin is going to beast, eventually. It's not if, but when.
this is no knock against Austin, but I don't understand why DeSean slid so far in the draft. The dude has receiver skills and football IQ that are very hard to find. People insist on acting like DeSean is just a speedy return guy/slot receiver. He's one of the better route runners in the game, has an incredible understanding and knack for setting defenders up and getting open. He's had it since he was in college. I remember the coaches at Cal saying as a freshman he was the most advanced receiver they had ever seen in terms of football intellect and the finer points of being a receiverů.probly has something to do with him growing up with an older brother who had a brief NFL career and then made it his mission to pass all his football knowledge onto his younger brother and turn him into a beast so he could be more successful than him.
