The Paul Hornung Award, given annually to college football's "most versatile" player, has named its 49-man watch list.

Six from the Big 12 made the cut.
The Hornung Award is only 3 years old, but it's a pretty cool designation. Gotta love Austin's chances here. He personifies versatile. He's a great receiver, but they love to give him the ball on jet sweeps, too. He's also great in the return game.

Look out for Gilbert, a cornerback/kick returner, to make some noise in the award race, too.

Georgia's Brandon Boykin, a CB/KR, won the award last year. Stanford's Owen Marecic won the inaugural award in 2010 for his work at linebacker and fullback.
