Tavon Austin is the most relevant player here. At just 5'8", 174 pounds, the West Virginia star is tiny, and durability concerns run rampant. But Austin is almost unquestionably the most explosive player in the draft.
If Austin is still the first wide receiver drafted and a top-10 pick, the NFL will seemingly be saying that size isn't everything. If he falls until even the second half of the first round, it will be saying that yes, size matters.
Another example of this is Arthur Brown. The Kansas State linebacker is an animal on the field, combining terrific athleticism with superb instincts and football ability. The only question is his size, as he is 6'0", 241 pounds.
Both Austin and Brown are top-10 talents. But will they be top-10 picks?
