Mayock is someone that I usually like. He has Austin to the Bills. I think that all of this QB at 8 may be a smokescreen so that no one jumps in front of them for Austin. If they stay at 8 I think that he may be the pick.

I just was looking that up.  Any chance the Bills take Dion Jordan if he falls to #8?

in his mock, Dee Milliner, Chance Warmack & Dion Jordan are all still on the board. all of them are better than Austin.

Dee Milliner has medical red flags.
Nix won't take a guard that early... we specialize in poaching them off other teams.
I don't think Dion Jordan makes it this far... Cardinals would pick him up over a guard methinks.

I like all of those guys but WR is a bigger need than any of those positions. The Bills have 1 pass catcher!!!

Not to mention that he is a dynamic playmaker.

Austin reminds me of Santana Moss, not roscoe, he's thicker.  Was Moss a good player yes, worth our pick...maybe not.  In an interview with Darius Slay, he said Patterson was the hardest guy to cover in the sec.

Meh a rookie WR isnt going to produce his first season, may as well grab one in a later round and groom him to be ready next year.

I would be fine with Austin at #8, then taking a QB like Manuel or Dysert later in the draft.  He provides a number of options and would work well with Spiller and SJ13.

Absolutely.

Bill Polian today said this of Austin, "No WR that small has had a long and productive career since around 2002 so if you take him, your bucking the odds"

Given the status of this team, can it really afford to roll the dice on Austin?  If Dion Jordan is there, it would be the height of foolishness to pass on him for a  mini-receiver.

Would love this result.  Spiller and Austin on the field at the same time would be ridiculous. And I believe Austin fits Nix's top 10 draft philosophy.  Elite physical traits.  History of production in a major conference.  A difference maker.  BUT, the Rams are said to love him and the Jets have been linked to him.  Setting things up for a possible trade down?

Austin is the best pick besides Warmack.
Austin starts immediately and is a huge playmaker like Spiller. Dont think of him as a WR think of him as a chance to score every touch he gets whether at RB WR Slot or ST player. Not my favorite but maybe the best value all around. He is going to score if you give him the ball. period

Better in what way?  Austin is the only one of that group who can score from anywhere on the field at any time.  He is a match up nightmare.  Now put him in the same formation with CJ Spiller.  TWO players who can score at any time from anywhere.  On Punts and Kickoffs line him up w/McKelvin.  Who do they kick away from?  Will lead to bad kickoffs and possession starting on the 40 and shanked directional punts...  

Austin would be a valuable piece.  Don't need him to be "the man".  Just need to add him to the puzzle.  And TJ Graham can run too.

Sincerely, AJ Green and Julio Jones

The passing game in college is so advanced that QBS and WR are more prepared coming out. The transition is much smoother than it was.

Do you actually think he has more in common with Green and Jones, or Ginn and Parrish?

I'd say he has more in common with Spiller, as in being a serious threat to score every time he touches the ball.

Steve Smith says hello. And DeSean Jackson is well on his way to having a great career.

I must've missed the memo. I didn't think we expected to be at all competitive this coming season.

I'm not saying we should pick a WR, but you must understand, a WR picked in the first will have a much greater chance of being a star than one picked in the later rounds, who in all likelihood will take longer to develop and won't be as skillful.
