Seahawks Sign Huckeba
The Searcy, Arkansas native was nothing but impressive during the 2004 season as he led the Razorback team with six and a half sacks for 41 yards and 13 tackles for loss (-51).
Additionally, he recorded three quarterback hurries and one forced fumble. Huckeba is the first UA defensive end to be named to the coaches' first-team since Steven Conley in 1995.
The team has eight draft picks left to sign - C Chris Spencer, LB Lofa Tatupu, QB David Greene, LB Leroy Hill, T Ray Willis, TE/FB Tony Jackson, LB James "Cornelius" Wortham, and G/T Doug Nienhuis.
Jeb Huckeba School: Arkansas
Ht: 6-4.5 Wt: 247 40: 4.72 Year: 4Sr
Bio: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a senior after 56/12.5/6.5. Posted 70 tackles and 14 tackles for loss as a junior.
Positives: Tall, slender defensive lineman who could be tried at several positions in the NFL. Plays with excellent leverage, balance and moves well laterally. Fluid changing direction, chases to get involved in the play and covers a good amount of area on the field.
Negatives: Not explosive for an undersized defensive end. Controlled at the point or engulfed by large blockers.
Analysis: An athletic prospect with growth potential, Huckeba has the physical skills and mental intangibles to develop into a player at the next level. Must spend a year or two adding bulk to his frame, but could be used early in his career as a nickel pass rusher.
DOING THE MATH: 4.62 in the 40-yard dash … 375-pound bench press … Bench pressed 225 pounds 18 times … 415-pound squat … 335-pound power clean … 4.16 20-yard shuttle … 11.38 60-yard shuttle … 6.9 three-cone drill … 33½-inch vertical jump … 10-foot long jump … 32½-inch arm length … 9 7/8-inch hands … Right-handed.
THE .NET REPORT
Scott Eklund: With only three defensive ends that are guaranteed to make the final roster as of now (Grant Wistrom, Bryce Fisher and Antonio Cochran) Huckeba has a chance to come in and possibly earn a roster spot. He is a little lighter than the Hawks have liked their defensive ends in the past, but he has decent speed and he holds up well at the point of attack.
