Where new Tennessee Titans cornerback Marqueston Huff wins

What does the tape say about the Wyoming DB?

Troy Babbitt-USA TODAY Sports

Marqueston Huff was an interesting player to take in the fourth round of the 2014 NFL Draft. Honestly, I would have been happier drafting James Gayle in the fourth and waiting to take a player like Huff as an UDFA. However, what matters is that the Titans added talent to the roster, regardless of how they added talent.

Huff is strange player because by nature he is a corner, but he was forced to play safety due to injuries. Huff is a player who needs a defined role in a defense, and over-thinking caused him to miss opportunities to make plays. When he is given a clear instruction like blitz the C-gap or play man-coverage, he is much more effective.

At the end of the day, I would think that his immediate future lies as a special teams player. Though the special teams section has the least amount of gifs below, you have to consider the play volume differential between special teams and defense.

This is where he wins.

1. Special Teams

2. Defined pre-snap role

3. Thumper

Same play, different angle.
