According to PhillyMag.com, ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio told 97.5 The Fanatic in Philly that the Eagles will likely use the fourth overall pick on an offensive tackle or West Virginia wide receiver Tavon Austin.
“Here is what a general manager told me [on Monday]: ‘I know the Eagles want a tackle.’ And if those are all gone, he said, ‘Don’t be shocked if Chip Kelly takes Tavon Austin No. 4,’” said Paolantonio.
“He’s a little guy but the NFL now is a spatial relations league. Open space. What are you doing with a lot of space and how are you filling it? Which to me is the way to go right now because you can’t touch these wide receivers between the hash marks.”
With the Spread looks that head coach Chip Kelly will likely give opposing defenses, Austin would be a nice addition to go along with DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin.
