Draft Profile: Bio
Austin Stogner from Prestonwood Christian Academy High School was rated a 4-star recruit by ESPN and handed a 4-star grade by 247 Sports. Following high school, Stogner opted to join Oklahoma.

In 2019 as a freshman Stogner saw action in 14 games for the Sooners as he made 7 receptions for 66 yards for an average of 9.4 yards per reception, with 2 TDs, and a QB rating when targeted of 145.5. As a blocker, he allowed no pressures and no sacks.

As a sophomore in 2020 he played in 8 games and had 26 catches for 422 yards for an average of 16.2 yards per catch, with 3 TDs, and a QB rating when targeted of 120.7. In pass protection, he gave up no pressures and no sacks. As a pass blocker he gave up no pressures and no sacks.

As a junior in 2021 he played in 12 games and hauled in 14 catches for 166 yards for an average of 11.9 yards per catch, with 3 TDs, and a QB rating when targeted of 77.1.

After the end of the season Stogner transferred to South Carolina where as a senior in 2022 he played 12 games and had a decent 20 catches for 210 yards for an average of 10.5 yards per catch, one TD, and QB rating when targeted of 89.9. In pass protection, he gave up 2 pressures and no sacks.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Knee-bend and technique are good and he shows decent power when his hands hit the target.
  • Very versatile has lined up at pretty much every skill position possible and has had substantial time at H-Back
  • Varies the speed of his route, using hesitation and shoulder fakes to get the defender guessing.
  • Has extremely good, soft, natural hands. Consistently makes the clean catch.
  • Seems faster than his timed speed
  • We have him graded as one (for his career) as one of the best mid-level route receivers in college football
  • Good effort at the point of attack and second level as a blocker. Intelligent and will quickly acclimate to an NFL offense.
  • Good body control to reach back for the pass behind him. High-points passes and has good vertical, timing, and hand-eye coordination in jump-ball situations.
  • Decent blocker in both the running and passing game
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Never looked like the player he was before the injury - it's a gamble as to whether he can regain his form
  • Stogner's 2021 season has been a bit of a nightmare. He’s run a route on 82% of his snaps and has averaged just 0.79 yards per route run - that’s the worst number of any Sooner receiver.
  • Inconsistent with his release off the line of scrimmage.
  • His hands are not as reliable as you would like and even before the injury had a number of drops
  • Had a devastating knee injury that cut short his 2020 season - will need to be thoroughly checked by pro teams
  • May not hold up as a blocker in the pros against pass rushers - will need to get stronger
Scouting Report: Summary
Stogner was on the trajectory to become a first-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft until an injury almost destroyed his playing career. He's never even looked close to the player he was before and teams will look at him with a massive question mark. He'll be tested heavily at the combine and will need to demonstrate the speed and athleticism he showcased prior to the injury or risks being a late-round selection.

If he can convince NFL teams that a) the knee is fully healed and b) 2021 was just a disappointing fluke - he could sneak into the late second round. It's a big if though.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
