2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

The first skill player chosen in the 2013 draft, Austin isn't your prototypical wide receiver prospect. At 5-8, 174, he's one of the smallest players in the league, and unlike Carolina's Steve Smith, Austin doesn't have super strength or the ability to snatch the ball out of the air against taller defenders. What Austin does have is 4.34 40 speed, elite quickness and excellent vision in the open field. He can line up in the backfield as a runner, play in the slot or go outside. With the Rams letting Danny Amendola go, Austin is the favorite to be Sam Bradford's top target, and the Rams, who traded up to draft him, should be creative in finding ways to get Austin the ball.
