Big Ten's leading receiver puts NFL combine snub behind him, turns in good pro day (Shutdown Corner)

Austin Carr’s path to the NFL never was going to be a straight one, not after walking on at Northwestern as a zero-star recruit, not even seeing the field for two years for the Wildcats, and having to cut his teeth on special teams when he finally did. It just didn’t think Carr was worthy of attending the NFL’s scouting combine. Heck, the NFL even looked past its own rules about past conduct to invite Oklahoma’s Dede Westbrook, who had past domestic violence complaints against him.
