A 7th round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, Terrence Austin looks to establish himself in the NFL. I had the privilege to chat with him on the phone this afternoon, and I got nothing but good vibes from this youngster who has nothing but promise ahead of him in the NFL. As a late round pick, he is no shoe-in, but with competition in spots up and down t his roster, he certainly has plenty of opportunities to sign on with the Burgundy and Gold. Of course he still needs to graduate, as he will be walking soon and will become an alumni of UCLA.
I believe, with the release of Rock Cartwright, that the kick returning job will be up in the air, as no one has solidified themselves or has been identified from the bunch. Devin Thomas and Anthony Alridge were two players who I though had a good shot on becoming the regular return guy. However, based on Thomas’ position on the depth chart that may not be a guarantee, and last week Alridge was released from the team.
A wide receiver by nature, his speed and shiftiness would be a welcomed asset for the Redskins. He isn’t the biggest receiver on the field, but his 4.38 40 would be a dangerous weapon in the special teams game.
