The Los Angeles Rams have traded wide receiver Tavon Austin to the Dallas Cowboys for a sixth-round pick (192nd overall), giving the Rams a whopping seven picks in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft. One giant question mark at the wide receiver position for the Dallas Cowboys.

When the Rams surged to the NFC West title past year after 10 straight losing seasons, Austin didn't play much of a part.

From adding depth to the offensive line with players Joseph Noteboom and Brian Allen to from filling needs at linebacker with Micah Kiser, Los Angeles has plenty of reasons to be thrilled with their selections from this year's draft. Used mainly as a decoy, Austin only caught 13 passes and put up just 317 total yards of offense.

Austin's 288 catches at West Virginia and 3,413 receiving yards remain school records, as do the 344 rushing yards he amassed in a 50-49 loss to Oklahoma in 2012.

The Dallas Cowboys had a overflowing wide receiver group prior to drafting Colorado's Michael Gallup in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft on Friday night.

Tavon Austin is finally on the move.
