Found April 17, 2013 on BlackSportsOnline:
West Virginia do it all wide receiver Tavon Austin is quickly becoming the toast of the 2013 NFL Draft.  Austin has visited with almost every team, with all of them gushing over his versatility. Austin visited with the Lions today, and he was the one gushing.  Austin when asked to project himself into the Lions mix with Matthew Stafford and Megatron, compared himself to Reggie Bush. He then went a little further and said that he and Bush would be like twins. Tavon Austin on what a team would be getting: “Another type of player like Reggie (Bush). Me and him would probably be twins back there.” — Tim Twentyman (@ttwentyman) April 17, 2013 Austin to the Lions at 5 is probably not going to happen, but if I am the Lions, I definitely scheme out a way to possibly draft him. You can never have enough offense.
