Ourlads' Profile:

2019 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about BLESSUAN AUSTIN: Rutgers, 6005 198 4.50. Four year starter from Queens, NY. Injuries have cost him a substantial part of his junior year and all but the opener his senior year. Tall slender prospect with athletic ability and technique. Has played a variety of coverage and technique. Often aligned in press in zone and man. Adept at press, press and bail, and off technique in quarters. Pacing in pedal and bail technique maintains the cushion for effective turn and run. Fluid in transition with loose hips. Moves well laterally to close voids in between zones. Sees the quarterback and threats with quick reaction to delivery key. Has ball skills for the interception and pass break. Gets to the high point and challenges the catch. Solid reactions to intermediate throws in the outside third. Can undercut a route on the sideline. Has agility to mirror multiple cuts. Has enough speed to handle vertical routes. Tackles well with form and finish. Lacks power to shed blocks consistently and can get tied up. In limited exposure Austin shows the tools of a solid NFL prospect. Needs strength development. The medical report will dramatically affect his draft status with three major knee surgeries. Limited playing time the last two years already factors in. That aside he offers value as a tall corner with upside and special team skill. Could be a steal in the late rounds. 2018 stats: (1 game) 3 T, 2 TFL, 1 sack, 1 INT. Medical exclusion at Combine. Sixth/seventh round. (A-32 1/2, H-10, VJ-35.5, SS-DNP).
