It was an absurdly bad pick

February 17, 2017 09:58AM
You do NOT draft guys that are 5'8" 174 lbs. that high in the draft!!! They traded up and gave up a 2nd and a 7th for him. Just nuts.

We would be talking 'value' and 'so glad we have him' if he had been chosen later in the draft. But at #8???

Ace Saunders
D'Anthony Thomas
Dexter McCluster
Denard Robinson

How are those guys doing in the NFL these days?

It gets even worse when you consider we chose Austin instead of these that were all available at #16; meaning we don't trade up and keep the 2nd rounder:

Leveon Bell
DeAndre Hopkins
Justin Pugh
Eric Reid
Travis Fredrick
Kyle Long
Xavier Rhodes
Travis Kelce
Tyrann Mathieu

The Ram's organization was just flat out inept. Stupid beyond stupid. And they extended Austin..... they're unbelievable.

BobCarl111February 16, 2017 01:25PM

  Here's my counter argument.

RFL168February 17, 2017 07:54AM

  He lined up all over and took handoffs too, yes?

  Was thinking more of a Sproles / Woodhead type player

promomasterj126February 16, 2017 09:51AM

  Should be slot on 3rd downs,

Blue and Gold219February 16, 2017 12:29PM

  Is he any good in slot?

promomasterj167February 16, 2017 12:51PM

  Slots can be small, but they need to run good routes

Blue and Gold157February 16, 2017 12:56PM

  what about 1st and 2mnd downs?

Hazlet Hacksaw180February 16, 2017 01:10PM

  In 3-wide, yes.

Blue and Gold148February 16, 2017 01:26PM

  I think TA is one of our best playmakers.....

SunTzu_vs_Camus201February 16, 2017 01:20PM

  Every word you just said is true

LesBaker151February 16, 2017 01:44PM

  He hasn't been a home run threat

zn167February 16, 2017 09:32PM

  I disagree completely. With all of it. Sorry. (NM)

RFL158February 17, 2017 06:59AM

  How many of his TD's have been called

IowaRam185February 16, 2017 02:42PM

  The penalties allowed the return

TonyHunter87172February 17, 2017 03:30AM
