Miles Austin scouting report

Thought some of you might be interested in this - from Scott Wright's NFL Draft Count

Wide Receiver Senior Monmouth Miles Austin
Height: 6-2 1/8 Weight: 215 40-Time: 4.47
Official Bio
Strengths:Has great size...Knows how to use his big frame...Tough and strong...Has good hands...Displays excellent balls skills...Great leaper...Is not afraid to work the middle of the field...Hard worker with top intangibles...Was dominant at his level. Weaknesses:Did not play against elite competition...Is not very quick and doesn't play as fast as he times...Is not much of a deep threat...Is not a great blocker...Doesn't run great routes...Has some trouble off the line...Project who still needs some work. Notes:Monmouth’s career leader in every receiving category, with 150 receptions, 2,867 yards and 33 touchdowns...Has ideal measurables and might make for a good possession receiver...On the rise and one of the top sleepers in this entire draft.

Monmouth held a spring intra-squad scrimmage Saturday. I was not able to attend but coach Kevin Callahan told me the offense did not score in the 75-play event, that several catchable balls were dropped. The final scrimmage game will be 3:30 p.m. this coming Sunday at Kessler Field. I hope to be on hand for that one.

It remains to be seen whether red-shirt senior safety Nick Castellano (Jackson) is granted one more year of eligibility by the NCAA. Callahan said it's "50-50."

It hasn't been announced officially yet but it appears there will be a post-season championship game between the Northeast Conference and Pioneer League football champions. I have it from an excellent source that the NEC won a coin-flip and will host the first game in the year deal.

Ran into Joe Migliore Sr. the other day. Son, Joe, was a recent former leading rusher for the Hawks after setting career rushing records at Jackson. Son Jim, he says, should be a return man this fall for D III power Rowan.
