2013 NFL Draft: Should the St. Louis Rams Select Tavon Austin at No. 16?
If there’s anything to take away from the St. Louis Rams heading into the 2013 NFL Draft–it would be this is a team that needs to pick up a big playmaker on offense if they’re going to have any chance of competing next season.
The argument can be made that the NFC West is one of the toughest divisions in football and if the Rams are going to have any chance at winning the division next year–they’re going to need to figure out a way to add more weapons on offense. Not only does Sam Bradford still have a lot to prove, but the team lost one of their most consistent weapons on offense in Steven Jackson to free agency–which means the draft will be key next week.
One player that could be a great addition for St. Louis–Tavon Austin of West Virginia.
When looking at Austin, the argument can be made that he’s arguably the best wide receiver from this year’s class and the best part is–he’s capable of being a threat on the ground as well. There’s no question Austin would make a great addition for the Rams and there’s a good chance he’ll be available at No. 16–so why wouldn’t St. Louis take him if he’s there?
Austin is the type of rookie with the potential to make an immediate impact as a rookie and has proven to be an effective playmaker throughout his career. Hopefully, the Rams are wise about their decision at No. 16 if Austin is available.
Otherwise–they may be looking back and wondering what could have been.
