Scouting Report

40 time: 4.38

Sixth Round

SNAPSHOT: One of the fastest players in the class, a nine-time track state champion in high school earned all-AAC honors in both track and football. Was a marginal producer in his first three years with the football team, but finally stepped into a more valuable role in 2020. His resume as a returner isn't as illustrious as other prospects, but his traits suggest he will succeed in that role immediately as a pro.

Strengths: Legitimate track speed in the open field. Twitchy lower half allows him to make instant adjustments. Won't back down against bigger opponents. Acceleration is phenomenal. Value and experience as a returner should help him lock a roster spot. Comfortable tracking and adjusting to passes coming in over his shoulder. Good hand-eye coordination. Able to scoop tough passes away from the turf. Hands are consistent when uncontested.

Weaknesses: One of the smallest receivers in the last decade and the size gap going to the NFL is going to hurt. Looks like a high schooler. Size will make him a non-factor as a blocker. Toughness after the catch doesn't translate into success. Strictly a slot receiver at the NFL level.

PRO COMP: Jakeem Grant, Bears - While receivers do come in many sizes, it's hard to find a lot of them in this weight class. Grant initially locked in his roster spot due to his excellent ability as a returner, but has carved out a niche as a rotational target. Austin's path to success will be a slow one, but his rare speed should help him stick.
