Tavon Austin, chosen No. 8 overall in the recent NFL draft, took a few handoffs midway through practice. At West Virginia last fall, in addition to catching 114 passes for 1,289 yards and 12 touchdowns, Austin rushed 72 times for 643 yards and three scores.
We're expecting Austin to fill a similar role as Percy Harvin and Randall Cobb have in recent years. He's not going to see a ton of carries, but 1-2 a game are likely.
