Austin looking forward to show the size of his heart to Steelers

Calvin Austin III might look up to the majority of his new Steelers teammates, but that's nothing new for the diminutive wide receiver.

At 5-foot-8, 170 pounds, he's always been smaller than the players he is competing against and with.

It has not, however, held him back -- except when it comes to perception.

Austin has been fighting stereotypes his entire life. From the time he was a starting varsity player as a 5-foot-4, 130-pound freshman cornerback to the NFL Draft, Austin has been proving people wrong.

The Steelers' fourth-round draft pick can't wait to do it again.
