    Great Michael Huff Interview

    http://www.nfl.com/draft

    Can't get the direct link to the video to work, but it's on the NFL Draft page listed as "Video: First Draft with Huff"

    Re: Great Michael Huff Interview

    I want that guy to be a RAM!!!

    Like he said in the video.. He plays every play like it'll be his last play and every game like it'll be his last game.

    Great Character, work ethic, and study habits. (4.34 Forty helps too).

    Huff has a motor that just won't stop. He has all the skills to be an immediate impact player, but I do believe that Vernon Davis will be available to the Rams at 11 and that the Rams will take the TE.

    Yea your over exagerating. He won't blow any house down. He isn't a big hitter. If you want a big hitter look at Bob Sanders when he played for Iowa or Jerome Carter at Flordia State. Huff is nothing just another average hitter.

    I'd take a playmaking ballhawk over a hitter anyday and twice on Sundays.

    Re: Great Michael Huff Interview

    If a CB has to do a lot of hitting, then the LB's aren't doing there job.

    And you are right HUb.....case in point is Deion Sanders. Best cover man ever but couldn't tackle the tackling dummy.

    Um. Actually Bob Sanders is a play maker too. I think Sanders was a better spect coming out of college over Huff. And without a doubt more physically gifted. Sanders Draft stats

    AGILITY TESTS
    4.3 in the 40-yard dash … 332-pound bench press … 497-pound squat … 360-pound power clean … 41-inch vertical jump … 10-foot-8 broad jump … 3.95 20-yard shuttle … 6.7 three-cone drill … 29 3/4-inch arm length … 8 7/8-inch hands … Right-handed.

    The guy has strength and he can be physical. He'll be a Free Safety - so you're strong safety is usually the big hitter.

    He benched more reps at 200lbs than Alex Barron did at last years combine! This is no Deion Sanders as far as upper body strength and the willingness to mix it up.

    Sorry to break it to you but Bob Sanders IS a free safety.

    No, actually, 4.34 according to NFL Draft Scout and NFL Draft Countdown.

    So I guess The Sporting News must have mixed up the players they were watching when they published their opinion that Huff "hits like a linebacker." I'm also curious what video Street and Smith had in when they described Huff as a "big hitter."

    The guy is no Roy Williams in the hits department, but watch a tape of him and tell me he can't stop someone with a hit. The difference is Huff actually prefers to get his arms around a guy and bring him down rather than just lay some wood and pray, and I don't know anyone in their right mind who wouldn't prefer watching a defender actually make a tackle.

    By the way, how did Jerome Carter's big hitting ability translate into his rookie season? I'll give you a hint... STUNK.

    Sanders a better spect (?) than Michael Huff coming out of college?

    Wow, it's really amazing he lasted all the way into the mid second round then and didn't give Sean Taylor a run for his money at the top of the first. LOL

    What's funny is that Huff put up numbers very comparible to what you just posted on Sanders:

    40-yard
    Huff: 4.34
    Sanders: 4.3

    Vertical
    Huff: 40.5"
    Sanders: 41"

    Broad
    Huff: 10'5"
    Sanders: 10'8"

    Shuttle
    Huff: 3.96 sec
    Sanders: 3.95 sec

    Three Cone
    Huff: 6.68 sec
    Sanders: 6.7 sec
    All this, and Huff's four inches taller. Just as fast, just as agile, just as athletic, but with a bigger frame. So, how again is Sanders "without a doubt" more physically gifted?

    ...that's all I get as a response? LOL

    Can't find Huff's max but he did 21 reps of 225. How many reps did Sanders do? Your quote from NFL.com doesn't say.

    EDIT: Nevermind, NFL Draft Scout has Sanders' reps archived.

    Bench
    Huff: 21 reps
    Sanders: 15 reps
    And they actually list his 40-time as 4.35 seconds and give him a 41.5" vertical, to whom it may concern.

    RF, I respect your love for everything Hawkeye, I honestly do. And I love your youthful enthusiasm. It brightens this place up for some of us old dogs and keeps us on our toes.

    But there's no way on God's green earth that Sanders was a better draft prospect than Huff. And Sanders is a hitter not a playmaker. In 2 seasons, he has 1 pick, 1 forced fumble, and 0 sacks. That ain't a playmaker.
