If you thought Nolan Nawrocki of Pro Fooball Weekly’s assessment of Cam Newton was overly harsh, you probably won’t like his take on UNC defensive tackle Marvin Austin.
In a piece this week on players with potential character concerns, Nawrocki said Austin interviewed very poorly at the Combine, throwing his school under the bus for his suspension last year without accepting any blame for wrongdoing.
“[Austin] has reputation in the NFL scouting community as a ‘finger-pointing, excuse-making con artist’ who does not know what it means to lead,” Nawrocki writes.
“[Austin] set a poor example and coasted way too much on his natural talent throughout college. Set back the UNC program by accepting improper gifts and was called “the ringleader” that led to investigations affecting the eligibility of 13 players.”
Other than that, the potential late first round pick is a delight.
