Michael Huff  CB/S  Texas

Strengths

Michaelís size, strength and speed are excellent for any of the DB positions.  He is a good tackler and has a great nose for the ball when itís in the air.  He can play special teams and has the type of cover skills that will make a lot of teams look at him as a CB.  Michael shows excellent leadership qualities along with the intelligence and talent to be an impact player at the next level.

 

Needs to Improve

Michael is playing a safety position because he is such a good field general and tackler.  The truth is that Mike is the best cover corner in this draft.  Safeties get picked a lot later in a draft than a complete cover corner.  In the upcoming bowl games, Mike needs to show the football world his real skills.

 

Talent Board Round   1

The truth is that Michael has the quick-twitch ball skills that will make him an impact cover corner at the next level.  I believe that heís a top ten player in this draft.  This kid is a complete DB that has no fear when it comes to making a tackle.  Mike has helped the Griffin kid who has tremendous talent also. He has helped Griffin in raising his confidence level, trying to get him to play every down and forget it when he makes a mistake.  This is a sign of a true leader and a team player.  As most of you know, Iím not in love with this program because I think most of their players under- achieve, but the few that shine in spite of the lax coaching philosophy shine bright.  Michael is just a hell of a player.  He has the quick twitch cover corner tackling skills to go along with his leadership and good teammate skills to be one of the best players in the NFL in the next few years.
