A 4.32 40-yard dash (96th percentile) combined with a 135″ broad jump is quite the showing. That's what Calvin Austin put on display at the NFL scouting combine. The mark is the best broad jump ever at the Combine by someone 5'8″ or smaller, per NFL Network research ace @FrontOfficeNFL.

Considering he was already a draft riser after a strong performance at the Reese's Senior Bowl, the Memphis product is staking his claim as a Day 2 selection. Just be wary that his size at 5-foot-8 (1st percentile) and 170 pounds (2nd percentile) will limit his fantasy ceiling, despite the elite athleticism. His closest player comps per MockDraftable.com like Marquise Goodwin and D'Wayne Eskridge leave a lot to be desired. 

If his fantasy draft stock grows exponentially, he's probably going to be a strong fade in rookie dynasty drafts.

Calvin Austin III runs 4.32 40-yard dash at NFL Combine

Memphis wide receiver prospect Calvin Austin III ran a 4.32 40-yard dash and posted a vertical leap of 39 inches and a broad jump of 11-foot-3 at the 2022 NFL Combine. Austin's 40-yard dash time, vertical leap, and broad jump all ranked in the top three among wide receivers who participated in those events at this year's combine.

Fantasy Impact

Austin is one of the smallest prospects in this year's draft class, checking in at 5'7" 3/4 and 173 pounds. He is known for this elite speed, and his impressive numbers at the NFL Combine could help alleviate some concerns about his small frame. NFL Analyst Lance Zierlein currently has Austin projected as a Day 3 pick, but his impressive performance this week could push him into Day 2 if a team falls in love with his elite speed.
