RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Following back-to-back seasons with double-digit sacks, Hughes dropped back down to five in 2015. A revitalization of Hughes and the rest of the Buffalo front seven will be a requirement to get this defense back to where it was just two years ago.

2015

Re-signed to a lucrative five-year, $45 million contract this spring, Hughes has blossomed since joining the Bills via trade in 2013, as he's posted 19.5 sacks over the past two seasons. Additionally, Hughes has been credited with 99 tackles, five forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery since arriving in Buffalo, evidencing his well-rounded skill set. As the Bills transition to new coach Rex Ryan's new scheme, Hughes figures to occupy an outside pass-rushing position opposite Pro Bowler Mario Williams, continuing a tandem that helped Buffalo finish last season in the NFL lead with 54 total sacks.

2014

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.

2013

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.

2012

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.

2010

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.
