Calvin Austin is More Than Gadget Guy in Pittsburgh Steelers Offense

Coming out of Memphis, the biggest knock on Calvin Austin was his size. When he measured in under 5’8 at the NFL Combine, it wasn’t a surprise but the lack of prototypical size for the position surely played a big part in him falling all the day way to day three of the NFL Draft. Still available in round four, the value for a player this talented was simply too hard for the Pittsburgh Steelers to pass up.

Since that weekend, all Austin has done is impress throughout Steelers training camp. 

During one-on-one drills, the Memphis product has been a handful to cover on seemingly ever rep, regardless of who’s lined up across from him. He’s seen a lot of matchups against first team nickel corner Arthur Maulet and he’s excelled in those battles.
