We need a great player. I would take Austin. That's my best guess. I don't want to get cute, taking some lineman in the first round in hopes that a guy who somewhat resembles Austin will still be available in the second or third. Get him in camp and the resemblance will be mostly make believe.
Austin is going to run past people, and around them. I place great value in that. There's not a lot of guesswork. With plenty of other guys it's a projection whether they can cover, or block, at the same level of effectiveness in the NFL. The hits are touted and the misses ignored.
I don't like the way the NFL has evolved but I accept it. Austin fits.
