2018 Review: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about AUSTIN PROEHL: Austin Proehl is the son of former NFL wide receiver Ricky Proehl. He is listed at 5090 and is small for a wide receiver. Proehl has worked as a slot receiver and has displayed remarkable route running ability during rookie camp and OTAs. He also has outstanding hands and has shown the ability to get open. His instinct to change directions and stop and start quickly will give him a shot to make the team.
