Colts get Hughes
|04.22.10 at 10:58 pm ET|
The Colts have taken undersized but overpowering Texas Christian outside linebacker Jerry Hughes with the 31st pick. Hughes is a very comparable prospect to the Eagles’ Brandon Graham and he has 26 sacks over the last two years. Hughes isn’t quite 6-foot-2 but the Colts covet smaller and speedier players.
Analysis: This isn’t looking good for the Patriots. Devin McCourty is a fine cornerback but won’t have anywhere near the impact Hughes or the Jets’ Kyle Wilson will on a defense.
