 Draft Scout Snapshot: A closer look at the Rams' picks: Round 1/8 - Tavon Austin, WR/KR, 5-9, 174, West Virginia...The Rams gave up a second-round pick to move up eight spots and take arguably the best playmaker in the draft. Austin will play in the spot, lineup at running, return kicks, and who knows what else. QUOTE TO NOTE: "That's something I can't change. I just laugh at it now. Not really laugh, but I just smile and take it in and put it on my shoulders. I've been small my whole life. It's not going to change. I'm 5-9, but my heart plays like I'm six feet. I try to keep that mindset, keep being smart on the field, knowing when to get down, knowing when not to get down, get the first down. That's really what it boils down to." - WR Tavon Austin on his size. - The Sports Xchange

 Tavon Austin TSX Player News Log
06/05/17 - WR Tavon Austin has been unavailable during OTAs because of offseason wrist surgery. "I think with what he can control in the framework of his injury, Tavon is doing really a nice job," Rams coach Sean McVay said. "He's active on the sidelines, you see that he's continuing to try to just perfect his craft with being able to run routes, work on his hand-eye coordination while he can't fully utilize that wrist. He's been engaged in meetings. We wish he had him available right now, but I think he's doing a nice job being able to control what he can and he's getting better within the framework of that."
05/06/17 - WR Tavon Austin won't be on the field for the Rams' organized team activities later this month after undergoing wrist surgery. Austin's surgery on Thursday was an arthroscopic procedure to repair ligament damage on his left wrist, according to ESPN. Austin is expected to be back in time for training camp and see how he will fit into an offense under new head coach Sean McVay. The Rams, currently in the second phase of offseason workouts, begin OTAs on May 23., while training camp starts in late July.
12/26/16 - WR Tavon Austin rushed 30 yards and had his first rushing touchdown of the season against the 49ers. Austin has four touchdowns this season. Austin's career scores total 23 (eight rushing, 12 receiving and three on punt returns).
12/07/16 - WR Tavon Austin returned to practice on Wednesday after missing last week with a chest injury.
12/05/16 - WR Tavon Austin (44 catches) was out Sunday because of a chest injury.
12/05/16 - WR Tavon Austin did not play Sunday against the Patriots with a chest injury.
09/26/16 - WR Tavon Austin paced the Rams with five receptions for 82 yards.
09/13/16 - WR Tavon Austin, who was given a four-year contract extension to two weeks ago worth $42 million, finished Monday night with just four catches for 13 yards. "We definitely were caught slipping today," he said. "We'll get it corrected. It's the first game. Everybody is going to see what they see. We'll be back. We'll go back to work this week and we'll come out different next week."
08/22/16 - --WR Tavon Austin and the offense have converted seven touchdowns in their only seven trips to the red zone. For a team that's struggled for years to score points, the red zone success could bode well if it carries over to the regular season. The Rams are 2-0, and one gets the sense they are enjoying the success, even if it is the preseason. "Definitely happy with how we played tonight," Austin said after Saturday's win over Kansas City. "That comes with the game. Just to knock out one last week -- the big thing about it is we got one more win and that's all that matters."
08/09/16 - WR Tavon Austin is geeked up for the Rams' first preseason game in Los Angeles Saturday against the Dallas Cowboys, which could draw one of the biggest crowds in preseason history. It's also the first time the Rams and Cowboys have shared the same field since a memorable brawl they had during a training camp practice last year in Oxnard. "It's definitely going to be a big game," Austin said. "Last year we kind of got into it in Oxnard. We've got to bring it. I know our side is definitely going to bring it. We'll see from them." Of course, excitable isn't unusual for Austin. "He's got two speeds," head coach Jeff Fisher said. "One is 'fast' and the other is 'sleep.' When he's not sleeping, he's going fast and that's how his personality is also. He's just going fast all the time. He's a really smart player and a really exciting, special player. He loves to play."
