Overview

His last name is pronounced "HUE-it." The Colorado prep was coached by nine-year NFL WR Dave Logan, who played for Cleveland and Denver. Was a three-year letterwinner at tight end and also lettered in basketball. Was recruited by Stanford as a tight end, but mainly lined up at fullback during his collegiate career. After a redshirt year in 2009, he appeared in 13 games in '10; had two receptions for 16 yards (8.0-yard average) and zero touchdowns and did not have any rushing attempts. Was the primary blocking fullback for Stepfan Taylor in '11, rushing 10-35-0 (3.5) and catching 34-282-5 (8.3) in 13 games (11 starts). Finished third on the team in receptions as a top target for Andrew Luck. Of his 44 offensive touches, 30 either resulted in a first down or touchdown. Appeared in 12 games (7 starts) in '12 and carried 13-32-1 (2.5) and caught 14-129-1 (9.2), again serving as Taylor's primary fullback. Missed the first two games of the season with an ankle injury. Was the primary blocking back for Tyler Gaffney in '13, rushing 5-8-0 (1.6) and receiving 9-46-0 (5.1) in 13 games (11 starts). Missed an early season game with a bruised knee.

Analysis

Strengths

Fairly quick out of his stance. Attacks with urgency. Understands angles and positioning. Can block on the move. Good hands -- catches away from his body and had 34 receptions as a sophomore. Lined up in multiple spots and has special-teams experience. Cares about the game and puts the work in. Clean character.

Weaknesses

Needs to bulk up and get stronger. Athletic ability and speed are just adequate. Marginal value as a runner. Fairly straight-linish. Limited explosion and body power as a lead blocker. Tweener traits.

Draft Projection

Round 7-Priority free agent

Bottom Line

Smart, jack-of-all-trades, master of none with a tweener skill set. Will go as far as his versatility, blocking, hands and special-teams utility carry him and could be best in a "move" blocking role.
