Nice find on the videos. He looks to be a decent pickup in the later rounds. 127 tackles for a DB is crazy.

Overview

Spent first three seasons at cornerback before moving to safety. 2013: Second on team with 127 tackles. 2012: Fifth on team with 57 tackles. Played in 12 games. 2011: Had both the team's defensive scores (fumble return touchdowns). 2010: Appeared in 12 games; played nickel back and special teams.

 

Analysis

 

Strengths

Lean, athletic build. Fluid and sudden with terrific balance. Outstanding speed -- carries receivers vertically and flies around the field. Sudden plant and drive. Can elevate to contend in the air and make athletic interceptions. Does not hesitate to support the run. Scheme versatile. Sharp mentally. Three-year starter. Rose to the occasion against better competition and produced big against Nebraska.

Weaknesses

Has very small hands. Gets lax with his technique. Inconsistent, subpar tackler as a safety. Average ball production. Performance is up and down.

Bottom Line

Fast, rangy, tough, loquacious defensive back who was miscast as a safety in his senior season, but projects best as a cornerback in the pros where his explosiveness and physicality will appeal to a wide range of teams. Should contribute readily on special teams and has eventual starter potential. Played his best football early in the season and tapered off late in the year.

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.

 

--Rob Rang

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

2014 Senior Bowl Wednesday: Under-the-radar defenders highlight North practice...Blustery winds frustrated the quarterbacks practicing at the Senior Bowl Tuesday, but a day later it was the awareness and athleticism of defensive backs which made passing difficult. Wyoming defensive back Marqueston Huff blanketed receivers, showcasing the light feet, fluid hips and straight-line speed to turn with the North's variety of receivers, ranging in size from former Cowboys' teammate Robert Herron (5-foot-9, 193 pounds) to Saginaw Valley State's chiseled 6-foot-2, 212-pound Jeff Janis. Huff's athleticism is sure to intrigue scouts looking for cover corners and he's previously shown the toughness to handle NFL physicality due to his time at safety at Wyoming. - Rob Rang & Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

Could also mean you're giving up a lot of competitions.
