PRATTVILLE, AL (WSFA) -

From Fever Signing Day 2013 to potential NFL Draft pick in 2018. Prattville's Austin Golson is preparing for the next step-- the NFL Draft-- this week.

"It's been really busy and hectic and worrisome at times, but it's been an awesome experience," said Golson.

The former Auburn and Prattville offensive lineman has played four different positions on the Tigers O-Line, making his versatility for the NFL undeniable.

"That's my biggest advantage. That it is helpful. NFL teams only carry seven or eight offensive linemen and if you've got a guy that can bump around and add similar positions or other spots on the 53 or whatever the case may be," he said.

Golson was able to play in both the East-West Shrine Game and the Senior Bowl, opening up the opportunity to have conversations with every NFL team about what they've seen from him in the trenches.

"Everybody brings up versatility. Everybody brings up toughness and how I've competed at a high level of college football, the highest level you can compete in for four years, in 50 games," said Golson.

Austin has more than the draft going on currently. He and his wife are expecting their first child, a baby girl, on May 1, so every phone call in the coming days could be one of two very exciting things.

"My family has been messing with me the past couple of weeks, saying that I might get the phone call the same second my daughter is born and I'm like, 'That would relive a lot of stress,' but at the same time there was of a lot of tress building up to it. Me and my wife, we're extremely excited. We can't wait for her to get here," he said.

Nowadays Austin doesn't listen to music when he works out. He makes that known, because he says any one of the 32 NFL teams that picks him up over the weekend will get a very focused, self-motivating and versatile offensive lineman.
