Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Impressive athlete with very natural body control and burst in his route cuts, controlling his momentum very well as a ballcarrier to create after the catch. Fluid with springs in his legs. Balanced with good body strength to stay upright through contact, deceiving power to overwhelm defensive backs.

Smooth downfield adjustments to snare throws away from his body. Looks to catch everything with his hands and does a nice job catching the ball in stride. Tough and shifty after the catch and looks to finish with the ball, fighting for the finish line. Courageous over the middle and determined with the ball in his hands.

Physical and hard-working blocker. Versatile with experience lining up in the backfield and as a return man. Motivated and plays with energy. Consistently improved his production each season in college, setting single-season Oregon records for receiving yards (1,140) and touchdowns (12) as a senior.

WEAKNESSES: Only average height and looks near maxed out physically. Too many dropped passes and examples of lost focus, taking his eyes off the ball or worrying about defenders around him. Makes tough catches, but drops too many easy ones.

Late to locate and adjust at times, and his tracking ability seems to be hit or miss. Needs to stay alert and disciplined with more than a few holding or personal foul penalties on his resume.

COMPARES TO: Andre Roberts, WR, Arizona Cardinals - While Roberts struggled with some inconsistency early in his career, he showed steady progression and has taken a similar path that Huff might be looking at.

Player Overview

A three-star running back recruit out of high school, Huff didn't receive a scholarship offer from many schools in his home state of Texas, but he jumped at the chance to join Oregon's offensive attack.

He saw immediate action as a true freshman and improved his numbers each season, (including starts) setting career-bests as a senior with a team-best 62 catches for 1,140 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Huff has only average height, but is very well put together for his size with the natural athleticism you want at the position, showing explosive cuts and fluid body control to be a dangerous threat after the catch. He catches the ball with his hands, but his ball skills are very average and his streaky focus is the main concern - an early day three draft pick who will prove a steal if he can eliminate the drops.
