Tavon Austin played just three snaps in the St. Louis Rams' blowout win over the Houston Texans on Sunday a head-scratching development for the eighth-overall pick in April's draft.
Austin leads the Rams in catches (24) but he's made very little impact through six games dropping six passes while averaging just 6.6 yards per reception. This is not the unguardable playmaker we were told of.
So what's the problem? A personnel man from another NFL team revealed his theory to USA Today: "Little receivers don't work with inaccurate quarterbacks."
A direct shot at Sam Bradford who's completed 59.5 percent of his passes this season. In fairness Bradford also has thrown 13 touchdowns against just three interceptions with a passer rating north of 90.

The St. Louis Rams are a good team with a lot of young talent. Given enough time to work with Jeff Fisher and his staff these guys could gel and make some noise--that is, unless someone vital to the team's success gets hurt.
