I've read that he doesn't have elite speed but that he takes great angles, reads the QB well, and reads/anticipates the route well.
Well watch the drills Saturday morning. The forty and the drills will sort all of them out. My knee jerk on Austin is that he is slow of foot. He gets near 5.2, and ranks in the top five in the cone drills he can play guard for us.
