07:33 AM ET 04.18 | Tavon Austin may very well be the first non-QB offensive skill position player taken in the draft, which itself comes with some intrigue. This is absolutely fascinating because, at 5-9, 174 pounds, he does not fit the profile of a first round draft pick, let alone the first offensive skill position player in the draft. So I asked a number of front office men who they see when they evaluate Austin. ... Santana Moss. This may be the best comparison, but Moss is an inch taller and about 15 pounds heavier. They have similar playing styles, though, and Moss was the sixteenth pick of the first round. He has not been a dominant NFL wide receiver, but he has had four 1,000 yard receiving seasons and made it to one Pro Bowl.

Hmmm? At 5'9 174 lbs. I would compare him more with Justin Bieber.

JB probably weighs 140-150 tops...

Wes Welker, 5'9", 185.

Take my advice, Tavon. Take a 3-week vacation in Italy. Sample the outstanding restaurants on every block. Come back 10 pounds heavier. Worked for me.
