Default Tavon Austin Collector?

Is there a member on BO that super collects Tavon Austin or just has a solid collection of him? Thanks

Not sure about a Tavon collector, but there are plenty of Rams fans on here.

Tavon Austin is highly collected because there's a lot of WVU collectors out there. So, I think there's for sure Mountaineer collectors who treasure him, much like they would the same for Geno Smith, Pat White and Steve Slaton.

He's not necessarily a future HOF'er in the making, but is a college alumni fan favorite and was a high draft pick in a weak draft year, 2013. I think he was one of the first offensive position players selected.



2013 NFL Draft

Austin was selected by the St. Louis Rams with the 8th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. The Rams traded up from pick 16 with the Buffalo Bills in order to select Austin. The Rams also selected former West Virginia wide receiver Stedman Bailey later in the third round of the draft, reuniting the teammates in the NFL.

On June 13, 2013, Austin signed a 4-year, $12.751 million contract. The deal included a $7.653 million signing bonus. During his first year in the NFL, Austin played 13 games with 151 rushing yards, 418 receiving yards, and 678 return yards on 51 combined return opportunities during kick and punt returns.



Some tout his college and pro teammate Stedman Bailey as being a better player despite being drafted in a later round and not getting much pro play time 'til the end of the season.

He should have good opportunity with the Rams and the Rams look to be a better team year after year, so are improving as a competitive squad on the gridiron.
