JERRY HUGHES - TCU

How does Hughes compare to Graham?
I really like Hughes a lot. At the same time, he has been feasting for over two years now on the RT's of college football, as the LDE. I am very interested to see how he will do matched against the better quality LT's of college football in the all-star game this year.

They've moved him around this year... He has actually played alot on the weakside this year.

Watch the first 3:00 of these week 11 highlights... Hughes was an absolute beast against Utah.

It's silly just watching him blow by that tackle over and over and over... Did Hughes ever line up on the right side?

Nope, not in this game and not most of the year either. He definitely plays the weak side of the defense almost exclusively.

The right-side of the defense is normally the weakside (blindside)... In this game and most of last year, he primarily played on the left-side or strongside of the defense, but most of this year he has lined up on the weakside.

I think you're confusing me, but it seems he lines up as the RE far more often.

EDIT: I meant LE, I Swear.

Maybe last year but this year in every game or highlight I've seen he's been playing LDE.

I like Hughes's burst and dimensions more than Graham's skill set, but Graham comes from a program that has consistently produced legit 3-4 OLBs.

Can't wait to see how both of them test out & look in all-star practices & games.

That means absolutely nothing.

I would be ok with either guy but I love Hughes every time I see him play. He may not always get sack numbers but he's always causing issues for QBs and offensive linemen.

You'd be surprised on how big of a difference it makes for talent evaluators, including McCloughan.

Perhaps...which is stupid. And that's my one knock on McCloughan - he seems to rely too much on size and stuff like this. There are exceptions to every rule. Hell Demarcus Ware came out from Troy...they're not exactly known for their talent. Guys who can play shouldn't be downgraded because they don't come from schools known for producing good NFL players at those positions.

I totally agree with what your saying, and we passed on outstanding prospects because they didn't have the "measurable" or they came from a weaker program.

I'd love to trade down and snag Hughes and pick up a 3rd round pick in the process to address other needs.
10 Trent Williams RT
19 Jerry Hughes OLB
2nd NT, CB, or OG

Would be great 2nd round pick for us:

Rd 1:
Pick 1A OT Bryan Bulaga or Charles Brown
Pick 1B move down from top 12 pick to 20s - pick up 2nd rd pick
Pick 1B OG Mike Iupati

Rd 2
Pick 2A OLB Jerry Hughes, Eric Norwood,Brandon Graham, Sergio Kindle
Pick 2b FS Morgan Burnett

2 rounds.. 4 great players at need positions... I would be very happy with this

we need a young CB more than a FS.

FS Goldson (solid), Smith (good)

CB Clements(good, but gives up big plays)
CB Spencer (starter, solid)
CB Bly (free agent)
CB Brown (good, but needs improvment on tackeling)
