I always like to know where the Jets send their scouts, and beyond that I like to keep a tab on how many they sent and who they were talking to. Unfortunately without being there it can be very difficult, so you rely on some information from writers around the country. Fortunately the Oregon pro day was attended by Ryan Thorburn who covers the Oregon football team for The Register-Guard, and he was more than happy to help us out with some information:
@D_wyatt13 they have a scout here— Ryan Thorburn (@rgduckfootball) March 13, 2014
@D_wyatt13 actually, I've seen two with jets gear.— Ryan Thorburn (@rgduckfootball) March 13, 2014
@D_wyatt13 They chatted up Huff afterwards, FWIW.— Ryan Thorburn (@rgduckfootball) March 14, 2014
So first of all a big thank you to Ryan for sending over the information and unsurprisingly, it's a wide receiver the Jets are showing interest in.
So Josh Huff, a 5-11, 206lb receiver who runs around 4.51. I've seen snippets of him but not enough to make a firm substantial judgement. To me he looks very fluid and balanced, powerful and controlled. He seems to get in and our of his cuts well with good acceleration and decent top end speed. Looks as though he runs some nice routes and I saw him take some big shots and bounce straight back up. However he also apparently has a problem with dropped passes and a lack of focus.
He had 62 receptions for 1140 yards and 12 touchdowns. So he definitely has no problem in relation to production.
Projected to go in the 3rd or 4th round. it's fair to say the Jets may have some interest there if they sent multiple scouts and chatted to him after the performance. So keep an eye on this one.
