Draft Scout Matt Austin News
05/31/13 - WR Matt Austin had his contract terminated by Seattle.
03/07/13 - It’s ending, Matt Austin has realized. Four years of sweat and blood that he’s left in Logan, and now there’s only a few more days left. The 24-year-old is pushing himself as hard as ever, hoping that years of work can translate into a faster 40-yard dash and a higher vertical leap. On Thursday, NFL scouts will be watching, seeing if he has what it takes to cut it in the pros. It’s hard to believe, Austin said, that it’s boiling down to this. "I wish I could play here another year, as long as I’ve been here," Austin said, wiping the perspiration from his brow after a workout. "These past four years have been the most fun of my life. I’ve grown and matured a lot being around the guys."
Austin, the Aggies’ leading receiver last season, is among about a dozen Utah State seniors who are scheduled to work out during the school’s Pro Day. Starting at 8:30 a.m., the group will be measured and clocked in a barrage of tests and drills that scouts use to determine who has the right stuff. - Kyle Goon, The Salt Lake Tribune
