05/11/2014 - The Eagles continued to accumulate Pac-12 and Oregon players. Two of the Eagles' seven draft picks -- wide receiver Josh Huff and defensive end Taylor Hart -- played for coach Chip Kelly at Oregon. A third - safety Ed Reynolds, is a Pac-12 product from Stanford. The Eagles now have 16 Pac-12 players on their roster, including seven from Oregon. Kelly insisted he's not playing favorites. "We're taking the best players, in our opinion," he said. "We've drafted a lot of good LSU players. We've drafted Stanford players. Just because we have familiarity (with those players), if someone wants to say that's a concern, that's okay." - The Sports Xchange
04/29/2014 - Five players who should be on the New York Jets' draft radar: WR Josh Huff, Oregon: The Jets are expected to make wide receiver a priority but given their bounty of selections and the unique depth of this year's most gifted positional group, it may not occur until Day 2 or even Day 3. Further, while adding an elite playmaker like LSU's Odell Beckham Jr. (as I've projected here) certainly would make life easier on the Jets' quarterbacks, Ryan and offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg aren't likely to suddenly ditch their conservative approach. The 5-foot-11, 206 pound Huff is well-built and offers good overall athleticism, including burst, agility and the strength to acclimate quickly to the NFL. He will drop his share of easy passes while attempting to make defenders miss before securing it but possesses the hand-eye coordination and wide radius to extend to make the dazzling grab. Huff is hardly just a function of Oregon's offense, standing out against top competition at the Senior Bowl. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
03/26/2014 - 2014 Pro Days: De'Anthony Thomas clocked at 4.34 at Oregon workout...While Thomas was certainly the most impressive athlete on the field for the Ducks Thursday, he could ultimately be upstaged by several former teammates come May. Wideout Josh Huff may wind up being the first Oregon player selected this year. He built upon a strong off-season at the Senior Bowl and Combine with a solid workout, shaving a few hundredths of a second off of his 40-yard time in Indianapolis (4.51) with a 4.47 and 4.49 on Thursday. He also added two inches to his Combine broad jump to finish at 9'10" and posted one more rep in the bench press, lifting the bar 15 times Thursday. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
01/22/2014 - 2014 Senior Bowl Wednesday...Oregon wideout Josh Huff might be the gifted of the North's receivers but he showed the same frustrating struggles with consistency which characterized his career with the Ducks. Possessing broad-shoulders, strength and toughness, Huff is capable of fighting through safeties to gain position, as well as the quickness and speed to separate from cornerbacks. Unfortunately, the tendency to lose focus on the details - like exploding through his routes or securing the football through the entire catch process - again came into play during Wednesday's practice. Huff can make the spectacular play, demonstrating the ability to track the ball over his shoulder on vertical routes as well as twirling to make acrobatic catches against tight coverage. He also dropped a beautiful deep ball down late in practice down the right sideline and too often was knocked off his feet by aggressive cornerbacks. - Rob Rang & Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
12/03/2013 - 2013 ALL-PAC-12 HONORABLE MENTION (COACHES): WR Josh Huff, Sr.,...Has been selected All-Pac 12 Honorable Mention for the 2013 college football season as voted on by the Pac-12 Head football coaches. - Oregon football
12/02/2013 - WEEK 14 PAC-12 OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Oregon WR Josh Huff, a senior from Houston, Texas, posted a career-high nine catches for 186 yards and three touchdowns in a last-minute 36-35 win in the Civil War over Oregon State on Friday evening. After catching a 12-yard touchdown pass on fourth down with 3:09 remaining, Huff followed with another 12-yard score for the game-winning touchdown with 29 seconds remaining in the game. All three of his second-half scoring catches brought the Ducks back from deficits and eight of his nine receptions resulted in first down or touchdowns. Also nominated for offensive player of the week honors were running backs D.J. Foster of Arizona State, Tyler Gaffney of STANFORD, Kelvin York of UTAH, Bishop Sankey of WASHINGTON; and quarterback Brett Hundley of UCLA. - Pac-12 football
11/29/2013 - Marcus Mariota threw a 12-yard touchdown pass to Josh Huff with 29 seconds left and No. 12 Oregon overcame a tenacious effort by Oregon State 36-35 Friday night in the 117th edition of the Civil War rivalry. Mariota threw for 285 yards and three touchdowns -- all to Huff, who had nine catches for a season-high 186 yards -- and the Ducks (10-2, 7-2 Pac-12) sealed their sixth straight 10-win season. It was also the team's sixth straight victory over the Beavers in the series.
With the Ducks holding a 24-23 lead, the Beavers scored on Sean Mannion's 4-yard pass to Tyler Anderson to pull in front 29-24 early in the fourth quarter. But Oregon answered with Mariota's fourth-and-11 pass to Huff for a 12-yard touchdown and the Ducks took a 30-29 lead with 7:56 left in the game. Victor Bolden ran for a 25-yard touchdown to make it 35-30 for the Beavers with 1:38 remaining, but Oregon State's defense couldn't stop the Ducks on their final drive.
Mannion passed for 314 yards and two touchdowns for the Beavers (6-6, 4-5), who ended the season on a five-game losing streak, their worst since dropping six straight to conclude the 1997 season. Freshman Thomas Tyner rushed for 141 yards and another score for Oregon, which finished undefeated at home for the first time since 2010. - AP Sports
08/13/2013 - TOP OREGON PROSPECTS FOR THE 2014 NFL DRAFT: 4. WR Josh Huff (5-11, 205, 4.42)...Like fellow pass-catcher Colt Lyerla, Huff might not possess the eye-popping production to earn much attention from fans and the media, but his traits will intrigue scouts. Huff, who has been starting for the Ducks since signing with the team as a true freshman out of Houston, caught a career-high 32 passes for 493 yards and seven touchdowns in 2012. He caught most of his passes while lining up outside over his career but is expected to see more action inside at the slot in 2013. This could result in significantly more catches for Huff and fits in with his skill-set.
While expected to impress in timed drills, Huff does not show elite speed on tape. His physicality and toughness, however, make him a difficult matchup for cornerbacks. Huff uses his body well to shield defenders from the ball and he is a strong runner after the catch, demonstrating the balance and leg-drive to spin and run through arm tackles. Huff is not a future No. 1 target in the NFL, but his size and strength should make him an effective complementary wideout capable of contributing early in his pro career. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
07/19/2013 - 2013 BILETNIKOFF AWARD WATCH LIST: Josh Huff, Oregon, SR...Huff led the Ducks with 493 receiving yards on 32 receptions last season, and his 15.41 yards per reception ranked seventh in the conference. The Houston, Texas, native had a team-high seven touchdown receptions in 2012. Huff has 1,226 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns in three seasons at Oregon. Huff will attempt to become the eighteenth student-athlete to win the Biltenikoff Award, and join the likes of Randy Moss, Calvin Johnson, Michael Crabtree, and Larry Fitzgerald as winners of the prestigious award. - Oregon football
