    I actually like what Amendola brings – but he has to stay healthy. He can return kicks as well as punts, a NEP need. But in the slot he also more true speed and is more of a threat to take deeper route or take the shorter routes a bit deeper than Welker. A few more yards here and there.

    I’d love Austin, but after the combine, there’s no way here’s there at 29. Might be able to get DeAndre Hopkins there of maybe DaRick Rogers or Quentin Patton in the 2nd.

    Personally, i still hope Austin is around at #29 we might need him, i don’t trust Amendola to stay healthy and from the youtube clip he’s not dynamic in slot, Welker looks much better. The reason i have been on the Tavon Austin bandwagon so much, i had a feeling Welker was gone when it was announced that Hernandez was going california with Brady i knew then we would need a slot receiver. If you look at Tavon’s body of work in college being a triple threat WR/RB/KR and his durability and reliability was never in question, i just think Amendola was mistake but we shall see. Also you don’t want to see a talented kid like Tavon Austin go to a bum team knowing the Patriots could harness his talents here.

      Not sure why you think you need to sell people on Austin. Personally, I think you should do yourself a favor and forget about him as he is highly unlikely to even be there at 29 for the Pats to consider him. If he miraculously falls there, I think they would give him more than a thought even with Amendola already on board.

      A necessary condition for that to happen, however, is 28 other teams to pass on him. Hard to see one of the Rams (two picks), Bears, Minnesota (2 picks) and Houston, to name a few, not have a go at him before the Pats.

      So, for all realistic purposes, forget about Austin. 🙂

      btw, a similar player, who’s unlikely to get drafted any earlier than the 4th round is Ace Sanders from South Carolina. He lacks Austin’s top-end speed, so wouldn’t be as effective as a deep threat WR, but other than that the two are very similar.

        thank you acm for your comments, Ace Sanders is not Austin, neither is Amendola!!! but i will leave the Austin talk alone.

        Just checked out Ace Sanders and looks like he would be worth a later pick in the draft. Very quick cuts and feet are always moving.
