49ers To Host West Virginia WR Tavon Austin
West Virginia wideout Tavon Austin, who scored 12 receiving touchdowns last year and ran his 40-yard dash in 4.32 seconds, is scheduled to meet with the 49ers next month, according to a league source. Austin also has visits lined up with the Patriots, Bengals and Dolphins among others.
At 174 pounds, Austin is one of the smallest players in the draft, and any team that takes him must decide whether he can be an every-down type of player. The ultra-confident Austin, however, noted at last month's scouting combine that he never missed any games with the Mountaineers and that he played running back extensively as well. He ran the ball 72 times for 643 yards last year in West Virginia's wide-open offense, and he scored three touchdowns on the ground.
