Tennessee Titans rookie Marqueston Huff is making a strong case as to why he was drafted in the fourth round.
The versatile rookie has been getting time at both the safety and cornerback positions and may find himself some consistent playing time this upcoming season.
If versatility is the name of the game for Ken Whisenhunt and his staff, then Huff could be a perfect fit for the system.
Already he’s made an impact getting veterans like George Wilson to take notice.
“He’s been handling it pretty good, you know. He does a good job adjusting whenever he’s been going into the nickel or into the safety,” Wilson said. “He’s done nothing but work since the first day he got here and he’s only done what the coaching staff has asked him to do. He does a great job of following the leadership in the secondary and so I’m very pleased with the progress that he’s made.”
Huff acknowledged he is making strides but still says he has a lot to work on.
“Throughout camp I’ve been moving around just trying to get a feel for multiple positions in the secondary and it’s been a real good experience for me, just getting a feel for multiple positions in the secondary, and it’s been a real good experience for me getting out there and showing some things that I can do, show my versatility, there’s still a lot of things I need to get better at but it comes with time,” he said.
The Titans take on the Saints Friday night at 7 p.m.
