Rams OC: WR Tavon Austin has had a 'great offseason'

NFL.com - [Full Article]

"Tavon Austin's had a great offseason," new Rams OC Frank Cignetti said, via the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "It starts in the classroom. He's learning. He's paying attention. He's bringing it to the practice field.

"You just see it from his route running. What a difference. His effort, his attention to details. Every day out there, the guy's made plays."

Whether it's because paint-by-numbers former offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer couldn't maximize the receiver/running back hybrid's talents or because Austin lacks any semblance of tackle-breaking power, the development simply hasn't been there.

Fantasy Impact: 

It's difficult to see Austin making much of a fantasy impact unless Cignetti's able to figure out a way to maximize his skill set.
