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.
DeSean's missed 9 games in his 5 year career and the majority of which came last season. He's surprisingly not the least bit fragile for the amount of touches he gets.
