    Can Miles Austin Step Up?

    Roster: #19 Miles Austin Dallas Rec Yds 278 Yds/Game 30.9 TD 3

    Miles Austin is a , but I don't see him going anywhere this year. And if he does the things being asked of him, I don't see him going anywhere next year. Austin is being given a chance that is not often given to players whom enter the NFL the way he did. As a project Player athletically-gifted, raw in skills, and low on the coaches list.

    But all has changed, now he is high on all the Cowboys coaches lists, owners list, and as a fan on my list. I believe we all are hoping (and for myself) praying he will become the receiver we all hope he can.

    Lets look at Austin's past:

    • During his days at Monmouth, Austin caught 150 passes for 2,867 yards and 33 touchdowns. He is the school record-holder in receiving yards. Austin rushed 15 times for 140 yards and one touchdown.
    • In 2003, Austin set a Monmouth single-season record for touchdown catches with 12.
    • In his rookie season of 2006, he returned 29 kickoffs for 753 yards and recorded 5 tackles. His main highlight of the year was in the Cowboys playoff game against the .
    • He returned 3 kickoffs for 136 yards in the game, including a 93 yard touchdown return. In the 55 postseason games in franchise , it was the Cowboys' first ever kickoff return touchdown in the . Austin caught his first career touchdown pass vs. the .

    As you see there is not a lot to go on, as I said earlier very athletically-gifted, and very RAW. Lets hope he polishes up very quickly.
