Scouting Report on Austin Boxby Mike Farrell - 06/20/2006
Box is a tremendous athlete, playing both quarterback and safety in high school. He has advanced leadership skills and a strong work ethic. He projects as a linebacker in college and has a hard-hitting style. His speed allows him to make plays to the outside and heâ€™s not afraid to take on bigger blockers in the middle of the field in run support. Heâ€™s a killer across the middle, often sacrificing his body to make a big hit. His coverage skills are solid due to his defensive back experience and will translate well to linebacker.
