WR Tavon Austin Can Help The Chargers in the Draft


Tavon Austin is dynamic! He is a game changer and there will be some teams that will want to trade up in order to get his talents on their roster. Especially teams that are looking to employ the pistol offense next season.

A player who has the same skillset as Austin, Percy Harvin, was just traded to the Seattle Seahawks so that they can employ his skills in that pistol offense. Seattle gave up a first round pick and a couple of other picks in order to get Harvin.

Another team in the NFC West could be looking to move up in the draft in order to get a weapon like that and they have a ton of picks to try and make that move. The San Francisco 49ers hold 14 picks in the coming draft! FOURTEEN!!!

If the 49ers would like that 11th pick, would you send it over that direction for the 31st pick and the 34th pick? Sounds like a deal to me!

We may not have the big left tackle fall to us at the 11th pick, so we might want to see if the 49ers are willing to move up for a player like Austin.

We can pick up Matt Elam late and a Barrett Jones and then come back around with our selection in the 2nd round and select everyone’s favorite LB Manti Te’o. Or we can try to pick up a corner with one of those selections. We could easily pick up 3 starters with those selections. Alec Ogletree could be sitting there for us with one of those selections.

Or we just select Tavon Austin for ourselves and use him LIKE A BOSS! We do want to get Philip Rivers as many weapons as possible!

    Most exciting highlight video of any player in this draft, man every time I watch it I want him as a Bolt. But I would trade the #11 pick if SF gave us their first rounder, their late 2nd rounder and one of thier 3rd round comp picks. Works for me

    • 49ersfan

      First of all, you SF does not have a 3rd round compensatory selection. They have a 4th Comp and 2 7th Comps. Second of all, you cannot trade compensatory selections. Third, WR isn’t one of the priority needs for SF this year. DT, DE, FS, SS, CB and TE rank above WR in terms of priority. The only reason I could see SF trading up with the Chargers is to grab Kenny Vaccaro, but even then I see that as highly unlikely

    I wouldn’t want this. Who cares if Rivers has people to throw to if nobody blocked for him. Rivers has proven that he can throw to anybody as long as he has the time to throw

      If we trade the pick so San Fran can pick him up that would be better than us picking him up

        the dude is sick though… understand we need offensive linemen before that. so you would choose one of the guards with the 11 pick then?

        • http://www.facebook.com/trg30 Thomas R. Graham

          Yes I would pick a guard or tackle over a wide receiver. Rivers need top end protection. I would also be ok trading down some spots to gain more picks. And btw I love reading the posts just don’t always agree with everything

          • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

            i would love more picks for sure. If San Fran is willing, I would be all over it. We need players!

    I’m pretty sure everyone but the guy who wrote this knows manti won’t go past the ravens lol

  • Joel Garcia

    If all three tackles are gone by the time were on the clock then we should definitely draft this guy ! like what his primary position ?? cuz idk what he cant do.
