BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter awarded all-Conference honors since his junior season. Senior totals included 35/1/11 after 57/2/12 as a
POSITIVES: "Nice-sized, athletic cornerback with an incomplete game. Feisty, physical and quick moving up the field to defend the run
or screen plays. Fights with receivers throughout routes, displays a good break to the throw, and works hard to break up passes.
Very fast in a straight line."
NEGATIVES: "Lacks fluid footwork moving in reverse. Beaten by larger opponents, easily disrupted from the action by blocks, and shows
average ball skills."
ANALYSIS: "Hughes helped his draft stock with a terrific combine workout, yet he is a cornerback who needs a lot of work on his overall
game. He'll be most effective in a zone system or backed off the line of scrimmage, yet he possesses the athleticism and upside
potential to make a roster."
