BIO: Named team MVP as a senior after starting 11 games at fullback, carrying the ball 54/256/3 while catching 27/185/1. Junior totals were 20/49/3 on the ground and 8/53 as a pass-catcher when he started six games.
POSITIVES: Collegiate fullback with the size and frame to play tight end at the next level. Smart ballplayer that breaks down well, squares into blocks and displays strength at the point of attack. Solid short-yardage runner with powerful legs and the ability to pick up a lot of yardage off initial contact. Displays good vision both carrying the ball or blocking for the ball handler. Tough and works hard.
NEGATIVES: Limited athlete who lacks corner speed and takes a while to get it going. Lacks the soft hands and only good as a short-area receiver. A bit tentative and must improve his ability to finish blocks.
ANALYSIS: Hard-working and competitive, McHugh's best and possibly only chance in the NFL is for a team that keeps three tight ends and uses him exclusively in blocking situations.
