    is Marvin Austin a bust?

    I'm starting to think maybe he is.

    I wouldn't say bust yet. I think we have to give this kid some more time to get used to the pro game. Not everyone is Ndamukong Suh and starts playing at an elite level right out of the gate. Look at a guy like Mcoy His first two years were mediocre and riddled with injury this year he made the pro bowl... Sometimes it takes some time for things to click with some guys. If he really is lazy and and doesn't put in the work he will be gone the Coughlin is not going to tolerate that.

    We usually only have one a year of these types but usually they are lower down in the draft (e.g. Bradshaw, Hosley, etc ...).

    Austin was suspended for issues with the NCAA. He has not done anything that would make him a threat to be an off the field issue in the pros.

    I chalk him up as a lost cause and don't even consider him 'real' depth. He always has a great camp or preseason then gets some horrible season ending injury, he's like T2 without the onfield success as little as the sample may be

    are u kidding? taking money from an agent and accepting free trips to Miami and getting suspended his entire senior season is not an off the field issue?

    Is he a bust? Most likely, but I'm willing to at least give him one more training camp to show something. The guy hadn't played football in 2 years, and only has 1 year of on-the-field NFL experience under his belt. Considering his potential, I'd give him a little more time.
