Steelers Select Memphis WR Calvin Austin With 138th Pick Of 2022 NFL Draft

The Pittsburgh Steelers selected Memphis WR Calvin Austin with the 138th pick of the 2022 NFL Draft, the team’s fourth-round selection.

Austin is one of the smallest players in the draft at 5076, 170 pounds. But he brings great speed and short-area quickness, running a 4.32 40 at this year’s Combine.

Here’s Austin reacting to the news.

Austin had an impressive 2021 season with Memphis, catching 74 passes for 1,149 yards (15.5 YPC) and eight touchdowns. He also had a 69-yard rushing touchdown and has two career punt return scores, bringing versatility to the offense and on special teams.

Over his Memphis career, Austin recorded 156 catches for 2,541 yards and 22 TDs. One of his punt return touchdowns was this heads-up runback against Mississippi State in 2021.

Austin is the second receiver the team has taken, joining WR George Pickens selected in the second round.
