Tavon Austin

How were the Rams going to cope with losing starting wide receivers Danny Amendola and Brandon Gibson in free agency?

They just supplied that answer by trading up to the eighth spot in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft to select West Virginia wide receiver Tavon Austin, who is considered the most dynamic offensive player in the draft class.

The Rams had the 16th and 22nd picks in the first round, but traded that 16th pick as part of a package to move up and select the 5-fot-8, 174-pound Austin.
