The Oregon product has shown the ability to line up anywhere on the field and make the necessary catches. He catches the ball in traffic and the balls with a little extra zip on them but needs to improve on adjusting to poorly thrown balls. Huff won't win many jump balls but still proves to be a deep threat given his ability to create separation with a double move. He anticipates plays very well which allows him to change direction quickly and/or allow blocks to set up down field.
One thing that is clear when watching Huff's tape is he has the ability to break a big play despite catching the ball close to or behind the line of scrimmage. He creates a lot of separation on comeback routes and sees the field well to find holes. Another large part of Huff's use at Oregon was as a runningback or on screen passes as it gave him more space to operate and use his skill-set.
One thing that is clear about Huff is he is versatile. He spent most of his time at wide receiver but also lined up as a runningback while at Oregon. In addition to what he does on offense, Huff also returns kicks and can cover on special teams.
Huff, 22, caught 62 passes for an Oregon single-season record 1,140 yards and 12 touchdowns. He struggled with injuries in 2011 and 2012 only posting 430 and 493 receiving yards in those seasons for nine combined receiving touchdowns.
Fit With The Eagles:
Instead, the Eagles were focused on replacing wide receiver Jason Avant, who was a salary cap casualty at the beginning of the offseason. Huff appears to be one guy who can step in and be a slot receiver for the Eagles. He helps solidify to the Eagles wide receiving corps.
Huff comes from a tough background as his mother dealt with a drug addiction finding herself in and out of jail. She hit Huff with a 2X4 when he was a child and almost killed him. He shows a strong work ethic but many say he needs a strong support system at the next level. Chip Kelly should be able to provide that for Huff.
