    Mark – so what is the scouting report on Huff? Speed, power, possession, wingspan, route-running, etc.?

      Definitely a speed guy. Ran a 4.5 at the combine but I think he is faster than that. Smaller guy, but good moves after the catch. Similar to Donteea Dye’s style but a little more polished and experienced. Could be used as decoy and take the top off the defense opening things underneath, then try and hit one deep.

        Sounds like something we’ve been missing for a coupla seasons now – speed. Good … now, if he can just stay off IR … 🙁

    I don’t expect he will get much playing time; maybe a few reps. Go Bucs!

    1. 2.1


      I think he should start and play the whole game.
      GO BUCS

  3. 3


    OK, time for another player to step up and help get to 5 wins in a row. Speed + “more polished” sounds like a good fit…
    Mark, I think your analogy works better with ‘than’ vs ‘then’ drops off the charts.
    Go Bucs!

    Let’s see if Huff the magic dragon can add some heat to the offense.

    1. 4.1


      In practice they would have a dragon versus a hyena:)

    I’m excited about getting WR Josh Huff. It’s like getting an extra 3rd round pick in the 2017 draft. So much so that if Huff works out, I’m taking WR Dede Westbrook/Sooners out of my 2017 mock draft. lol.

    Huff is a legitimate speed guy. Even though he ran a 4.51 at the Combine, he followed it up with a 4.47/40 on his pro day. Last year with the Eagles, he had a great game against the Saints. He caught a 41 yd TD pass from QB Sam Bradford to win at 39-17. Let’s hope he does the same thing Sunday! Go Bucs!


    1. 5.1


      Ditto Mac. Hope another good game for him.
      GO BUCS

  6. 6


    Anxious to see what Huff can do and if he can secure a spot opposite Mike Evans. He must be showing better than Dye who has been here a couple of years now. Sheppard had a couple of nice catches but not much lately. I wouldn’t take WR off the Draft list just yet macabee.

  7. 7


    i think he is our day 1 return guy and might be on the field for a couple of shot plays. however, based on the quotes above, it sounds like almost everybody agrees he needs quite a bit more time than he’s gotten thus far to become a trusted playmaker in the passing game. As the article noted, this is the first week he will be running the bucs’ plays in practice instead of the opponent’s plays
