Josh Huff, Oregon Wide Receiver

 

The first candidate who could join Kelly’s roster in Philadelphia is wide receiver Josh Huff. While he lacks ideal height that many Eagles fans hold in high regard, at 5’11 and 211 pounds Huff brings a strong, yet shifty skill set to any NFL team’s receiving corps. Voted All-PAC-12 Honorable Mention by the conference’s coaches, Huff’s biggest came of 2013 came against Oregon State where he lit up the Beavers for nine catches for 196 yards and three touchdowns, good enough for the PAC-12 Player of the Week.

Huff totaled 2,366 yards receiving and 24 touchdowns in four years at Oregon, but also contributed some ground work with 242 rushing yards and two touchdowns. If he’s available when the Eagles are on the clock with their fourth round pick, it’s a no brainer. If Huff is drafted by the Eagles, I’d expect him to directly compete with Jason Avant (a former fourth round pick himself) as the team’s slot receiver.
