Of all the players on the team, Austin could have the most positive impact. If he can play anywhere near the expectations that Reese had when he picked in him the 2nd round, the defense will be in much better shape than it looks like on paper right now.
I was totally stoked when he was drafted, and last year, I was ragging pretty hard on him.....but people were arguing he needed more time in the system, which is a point I can understand (even though I didn't totally agreet).
But in 2013, if he doesn't pan out, I can't see anyone being able to cut him any more slack.

As far as I'm concerned, we shouldn't be banking anything on Marvin Austin. I expect to see a high pick on the defensive line again this year.
Looking forward to seeing what Austin has to offer but the can not rely on him at is point. They better have a better plan at DT. If he does finally prove he can play and play well then great.
the only person I'm optimistic about is Wilson, I think the others will be replaced eventually. Wilson is the only guy that will be here long term.
Randle and/or Hosely should be on this list.
Austin was on this list last year. SMH
