Tavon Austin has been getting a lot of attention in this draft. He is quick with playmaking ability and could be a dynamic offensive weapon. Obviously the New York Jets are craving offense ahead of the 2013 season and he seems to be a natural fit.
And the Jets like Austin and have told him that they have a plan for him.
“He made a little joke, ‘We might throw you on the defensive side, a couple plays,’ but it was everything good,” Austin said, via Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger. “He said he had a plan for me. I talked to the offensive coordinator (Marty Mornhinweg), and they said they like players like me who can bring big-play ability there.”
And it isn’t strictly his physical ability on the field that impressed the Jets.
“I had a visit with them, so I was in their facility. They put me on the board and everything, (to) see how smart I was. For the most part everything went well,” Austin said. “I met everybody, and they pretty much said they like me a lot, and hopefully we can make it happen.”
But as the most dynamic skill player in the draft they might have competition for him.
