The Pittsburgh Steelers may have landed the most underrated player in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Pittsburgh selected Memphis wide receiver Calvin Austin III in the fourth round on Saturday.

I think Austin could’ve easily been a first round pick. His only issue is his size (5-foot-8).

The Memphis, TN native runs a 4.32 in the 40-yard dash, which is elite NFL speed. Finding that kind of speed in the fourth round is typical (especially from a kid who had over 1,100 receiving yards last season for the Tigers).

Austin plays much bigger than 5-foot-8. He’s great after the catch and despite his size, he can come down with contested catches more often than you’d think.

The former Memphis standout can also be used out of the backfield.

That’s essentially a perfect fit in Steelers offensive coordinator Matt Canada’s offense. Canada loves motion and jet sweeps, so he should be able to quickly utilize Austin’s unique skillset.

The biggest thing Austin will need to work on in the NFL is his route tree. He didn’t have to run a lot of different routes at Memphis, so he’ll have to prove as a rookie he can handle an expanded route tree.
