Marvin Austin

School: North Carolina
Position: DT
Bio: Two-year starter ruled ineligible in 2010 for violation of NCAA rules. All-Conference selection as a junior in 2009 after posting 42/6/4. Sophomore totals included 38/1.5/1.
Positive: Athletic defensive line prospect who can dominate the action when focused on the task at hand. Breaks down well, plays with balance, and rarely knocked off his feet. Works his hands throughout the action, fluid changing direction, and shows a burst of speed pursuing from the back side. Flashes power in his lower body, bulrushes blockers off the line, and will collapse the pocket. Shows the ability to drop into space and get depth on pass drops during zone blitzes. Effectively makes plays in space on occasion.
Negative: Easily be blocked at the point by ordinary opponents too often. Seems disinterested at times. Will make a dominant play then disappear for stretches. Marginally productive on the college level and never met expectations late in his North Carolina career.
Analysis: Austin is a prospect who passes the eyeball test and flashes the ability to dominate opponents, as is normal for elite prospects. But he lacks consistency and leaves scouts thinking he's capable of much more. He has a skill to be a productive starter in the NFL as a conventional defensive tackle yet must make football a priority, decide to play hard for 60 minutes, and stay away from off-the-field distractions to have a long career.
