With the 122nd pick in the 2014 NFL draft, the Tennessee Titans selected Wyoming Cowboys defensive back Marqueston Huff. Huff is 5-foot-11 and 196 pounds and rated as the No. 194 player overall and the 12th safety, according to Mocking The Draft.

Wyoming's defense was not great this past year but Huff put up good numbers with six career interceptions and two this past year, 13 pass break ups over the past two years plus a pair of blocked kicks. Huff also was a big help in the running game with 127 total tackles this past year, part of that has to do with the front seven being poor but it also shows that Huff is a sure tackler.

Being taken by Tennessee, Huff will be battling for one of the backup safety spots and also a nickleback position. He has a real good chance to be at the very worst a part time defender and a special teams player.

Here is what fans need to know about Huff from his scouting report:

Most franchises are looking at Huff as a free safety prospect but there is still the possibility he could end up at cornerback. With so many teams preferring bigger corners to perform man press coverage, Huff could still see time out on the edges. With that said, his ability to cover and his more than adequate size makes him a interesting free safety prospect in the pass happy NFL even if he is a little raw at the moment. Having played both positions a Wyoming is a definite plus in Huff's favor entering the NFL. He participated in the Reese's Senior Bowl, the NFL Combine and lastly at his Wyoming pro-day in Laramie.

Huff ran a 4.47 forty-yard dash at his Wyoming pro-day. He had 15 repetitions of 225-pounds in the bench press, a vertical jump of 35.5 inches, a broad jump of 9'10", a three cone of 7.26 seconds and lastly a 20-yard-shuttle of 4.19 seconds to round out his testing at the NFL Combine.
