With the Twelfth Overall Pick the Miami Dolphins Select

Tavon Austin.

Austin is an explosive player with the most impressive ankle breaking moves, combined with great vision. In prior weeks I thought to myself there is no way I want a 5'8" WR with the 12th pick. But that thought has changed even after the signing of Gibson. Tavon Austin is simply too dynamic to pass up. He can take it to the house on any given snap and will be a match up nightmare for defenses. Austin is not a Ted Ginn. One reason is that Austin has an explosive first step. But more importantly, Austin was also used as a RB which shows his toughness. His role at RB is what makes me overlook his 5'8" frame. Finally, Austin has excellent hands which is the most important thing about being a WR. Now Imagine Mike Wallace opening up the field giving Tavon room to work with underneath. That will make this team extremely dangerous. Mike Wallace, Tavon Austin, Hartline, Gibson, and Dustin Keller would make one of the most dangers receiving cores in the NFL.
