The Eagles and third-round draft pick Josh Huff have agreed to terms on a four-year contract.

Huff, who played under Eagles head coach Chip Kelly when he was at Oregon, finished his senior season with 1,140 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns.

"Outstanding young man. Great position versatility with him," Kelly said about Huff after the Birds selected him with the 86th-overall pick. "Josh played every position when we were at Oregon, so he's been an outside receiver, an inside receiver. He played a little bit of running back early in his career. He's returned kicks. He's an outstanding special teams player."

The Eagles coach went on to call Huff a "neat kid" and told reporters, "You're going to enjoy him when he gets here."
