Senior Bowl: Josh Huff

Senior Bowl: Josh Huff

MOBILE, ALABAMA - An update with Oregon receiver Josh Huff from the Senior Bowl...

Oregon receiver Josh Huff traveled to Mobile, Alabama for this year's Senior Bowl ready to prove he has what it takes to make it in the NFL.

"I'm just hoping to prove to the scouts that I play bigger than my size. I want to show them that I am a physical receiver, I'm a versatile receiver, and that's what I hope to showcase," he said.

Huff, who measured in at 5-foot-11, 205-pounds in Monday's weigh-in, reiterated that he feels his size shouldn't be too big of a factor when teams are discussing potentially drafting the receiver.

"I play bigger than what my size on paper says. I can make big plays when I have the ball, and I can make big plays when I don't have the ball," he said.

Huff has been getting some media buzz after three practices this week, and has spoken with many NFL teams during set aside formal interview time, as well as after practice.

The sole Oregon commit playing in the game, Huff fondly reflects on his time in Eugene and says there is one particular moment that has made an impact on his life.

"I'd have to say the 2011 victory in the Rose Bowl, just getting the feeling of breaking the curse. Winning the Rose Bowl is something that will stay with me for a lifetime," he said.

Huff, who grew up in Houston, was also pleased with his final game as a Duck, the Alamo Bowl in San Antonio versus the Texas Longhorns.

"That was something special, to start my football career in Texas and end my college career in Texas. It was a great win," he said.

The final catch of Huff's collegiate career broke a 43-year old record for single-season receiving yards and tied the record for receiving touchdowns in a season and career.

"It means a lot now, that I'm in the record books of college football. To have my name there is something special, something I never thought would happen. Hopefully it does, hopefully it sticks for a long time," he said.

When asked if he thinks it will take another 40 years for his record to be broken, Huff laughs.

"I hope so," he said. "I'm raising those guys everything I got."
