Hughes didn't look like a 1st-rounder to me. Easily fooled by misdirection and flanker reverse. Showed a speed rush and a decent bull rush but not much of a spin move. Doubled some of the time but also handled by the RT straight up much of the time. Strength and quickness, for sure, but not a game-changer. I thought both teams looked a class below the big-conference powers. I'd consider him in the 2nd, or for sure in the 3rd.
What are you expecting? Lawrence Taylor in his NFL prime?
i'm with rivercity in that, he gave up the outside edge too easily.
he got sucked inside too quick with the misdirection.
THAT KILLS AN NFL D. That'd be something i'd like to talk long and hard
with him about. D is about playing as a team, knowing your responsibility,
and doing your job and not trying to always be the hero.
He seemed pretty raw, but definitely talented.
I'd give him a late 1st round grade if all the background and work ethic
questions are answered really well. I dont think he is 6'3" either.
i think senior bowl will have him at 6'13/4" or so.
he reminds me of lamar woodley a bit, and i really liked woodley.
