I agree with the rest of it.
Not really though. Harvin was 190 lbs of chisled muscle. And even with that, he's hurt half the season. Kendall Wright was 195 lbs. Austin plays somewhere around 170. He's the size of DeSean Jackson. Any time Jackson goes over the middle, he gets knocked out for 5 games. Amendola and Welker are about 10-15 lbs heavier and taller.

Austin is a bean pole. He will get Johnny Knox'd if he tries to run inside or play the slot in the NFL. It's just a matter of time. And I think, like DeSean Jackson, he'll fall into the 2nd Round of the draft because teams don't want to take a chance on drafting a situational and fragile player.

I think Austin will be an electric player for the 8 or so games he plays each season.
