    Sauce Gardner said Austin was the most difficult WR he had to face, the Steelers haven't had 4.3 speed at WR like this since Mike Wallace.

    Yeah but how big are his hands? :lolol:

    (Of course that's all anybody talked about with Pickett. Since you're kinda new around here, green font means sarcasm on the topic, not you as a poster).

    I noticed so many times in these highlights of his that the defenders have him hemmed in but he just blows past the angles that they have on him. He isn't just fast, he has world class speed.

    Who is that QB throwing into some tight, deliberate spaces there?

    EDIT:
    Looks like a Freshman with 3322 yards passing , 25 TD, 8 INT.
    Seth Henigan 6'3" 200.

    My second favorite pick of the draft. If Pickett pans out then he’ll drop to third, but no matter what a great and much needed pick imo

    Pretty sure this is from the same guy that made the claim Ben was trying to protect wide receivers by throwing high and behind them. For the record that’s how you get receivers killed. So he’s claiming that Austin is faster than every other human on the planet.

    A 4.09 would be time to break out the red cape.

    But, yeah he is saying that Austin just broke the NFL's record for fastest time ever recorded.

    He shows finish line in slow mo at 4.09 but if you look at it the clock doesn't start until he is 1-2 steps in.

    Austin also had an elite short shuttle time. I don’t know how this will work out, him being a smurf and all, but I look for a good short shuttle time for wide receivers, and he has it.

    There are a couple of guys on YouTube that insist that he ran any where from 4.03 to 4.09. At the combine they adjusted his time to 4.32 but it could be somewhere between 4.09 and 4.32.

    And there are a couple guys on YouTube that claim the earth is flat. A few more that claim 5G will be the end of us all. A few more that claimed fema had set up prison camps around the us. And probably a few more making claims about lizard people.

    In this case I think the median is more representative of the human population than the mean.

    I'm a classicist myself. I just believe that there is small subsection of eugenicists and illumined that are trying to create a one world government through semi-secret societies like the CFR and Trilateral Commision for the purpose of creating a global Neo-Fuedal class system by using the Hegelian Dialectic. I'm basically mainstream.
