Tavon Austin To Visit With Jets

The Jets were selected by Tavon Austin as one of the teams that he will officially visit prior to the draft, according to reports from NFL.com and PFT.com.

The wide receiver from West Virginia  is believed to be the top wide receiver in the 2013 draft due to his great effort at the NFL combine and could be the dynamic play maker on offense that the Jets are looking for. Austin is expected to visit the team on Monday.
