Player Overview

A former cornerback who plays with quickness and impressive physicality for his size, Huff tallied 127 tackles from his new free safety position in 2013, averaging 10.6 per contest (11th in FBS).

Huff opened eyes at the Senior Bowl in January. His intriguing athleticism to blanket receivers of all sizes, led to projecting him back to the corner at the next level. But his versatility and athleticism should earn him serious consideration starting in the middle rounds and zone-based teams will view him as a rare utility player.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Looks the part of an NFL defensive back, showing a smooth build and solid, athletic frame. Helped his cause against top competition at the Senior Bowl, demonstrating light feet, efficient turning motion and fluid acceleration. Played cornerback most of his career before moving to free safety as a senior. Showed his versatility by playing both roles in Mobile. Made an impact on special teams at Wyoming and showed the same ability during practice.

WEAKNESSES: Tweener traits. Good quickness but gets caught up in his turning motion and doesn't play up to his reported timed speed. Tops out quickly. Inconsistent physicality as a tackler, flashing willingness to leave his feet for big collision. Slips blocks rather than fighting through blocks letting teammates do the dirty work. Doesn't break down on the move. Very small hands (8 1/4 inches) for interception.
