News: Tavon Austin to Visit the Jets

Right now, NFL teams around the country are bringing in prospects (predominantly early picks) that might be available when they select. While Tavon Austin was a borderline first rounder heading into the draft process, he has become a very interesting prospect and it seems to have turned into a matter of how high he might be selected.  So with the Jets holding the 9th pick (which seemed like it was on the front end of his range) and now the potential that they might also get the 13th pick, it’s no surprise that the team is going to bring in Tavon Austin for a visit.

It is a thought-provoking development. We wrote about Austin as a possibility for the Jets in this post, so read more about him there.

Austin is an electric prospect and has a Percy Harvin / DeSean Jackson quality to him. There are concerns about his size/durability, but he would be a player who would be an incredible playmaker when he gets his hands on the ball in space.
