NFL Combine Profile:
Name: Albert Huggins
Weight: 315 pounds
Draft Grade: Late rounder
How will he perform?
Albert Huggins started both games in the College Football Playoff and held up really well for the Tigers. He was a beast inside against Notre Dame and held his own and played very well against Alabama’s talented offensive line, as well.
Huggins has basically been a backup playing close to starter reps the past couple of years because of the fact that Christian Wilkins and Dexter Lawrence- two first-rounders- were on the roster.
When scouts take a look at Huggins, I think they’re going to like what they see.
He’s a guy with a big time motor that continues to work and pursue. Huggins has the potential to put on a little more weight on his frame and could be a solid interior lineman for a franchise.
I don’t think you’re going to see him come into an organization and play a lot of snaps from the start, but he certainly could develop into a solid defensive line talent. Honestly, he would’ve been an All-American if he wasn’t playing behind two all-time greats.
