Bryce Huff – EDGE – Memphis

Height: 6-1 / Weight: 255 / 2019 Stats: Sacks: 6.5 / TFLs: 15.5 / Total Tackles: 52 

In 2019, the Baltimore Ravens ranked 21st in the NFL in sacks with veteran Matt Judon leading the team with 9.5 and Tyus Bowser finishing closely behind with 5.0. Totaling 37 sacks overall, the Baltimore Ravens could use an extra kick to their pass rush.

The Baltimore Ravens placed a franchise tag on Judon, potentially keeping him around for another season despite the swirling trade rumors. Additionally, they traded a 2020 fifth-round pick to the Jacksonville Jaguars for veteran five-tech in Calais Campbell. But despite these moves, the Baltimore Ravens could use another presence opposite Judon or potentially in his stead.

While probably not a candidate to be a day one starter in the NFL, Memphis pass rusher, Bryce Huff could potentially blossom into a capable one. The first thing to note about Huff is that he undersized for the position. Although he’s a listed 6-3, Huff came into the East/West Shrine Game in January at 6-1.

Yes, Huff is small for the position, however, there are other qualities that did catch my eye when I put on his tape. Though he is not super bendy, Huff shows some solid activity in his hands and a never quit-type of playstyle. While at times he’ll get washed down by bigger opponents due to a lack of length, other times he uses his smaller stature to slip past blockers to make plays on the ball.

On my board, Huff is a fringe round six/seven type of player who will need time in the NFL to develop his technique and add some strength. However, Huff projects as an exciting standup edge defender in the NFL who can also put his hand in the dirt. If the Baltimore Ravens can be patient with Huff, they could have a steal on their hands.
