Calvin Austin is more than a gadget guy on the Pittsburgh Steelers offense

Coming out of Memphis, the biggest blow to Calvin Austin was his size. When he was under 5-foot-8 at the NFL Combine, he wasn’t a surprise, but a lack of prototypical size for the position surely played a part in him dropping to Day 3 of the NFL Draft. Still available in the fourth round, the value for such a talented player was simply too difficult for the Pittsburgh Steelers to pass up.

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

During one-on-one drills, the Memphis product has been difficult to cover in seemingly any reps, regardless of who’s lined up in front of him. He has seen many clashes against first-team nickel corner Arthur Maulet and has excelled in those battles.
