RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Hughes could surprise as an upfield threat in the Jim Schwartz 4-3 scheme. There is real sleeper value here, especially with regard to potential for sacks.
The former first round pick was traded to the Bills in the off-season. Looking to shed the 'bust' label, Hughes has a chance to start in a hybrid right end position in Mike Pettine's defense.
Hughes, a 2010 first-round pick, has been a bust in his career and was almost released last season. However, the change to the 3-4 defense may revitalize him as he has skills as a pass rusher as an outside linebacker that were not utilized in the previous 4-3 scheme.
Hughes is undersized, but has excellent pass-rushing skills. The Colts' will utilize him as a backup, but he could record a couple of sacks.
