Notes:
A two-time consensus All-American at TCU and the 2009 recipient of both the Lott Trophy and Ted Hendricks Award as a senior...Hughes, also a finalist for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy and Rotary Lombardi Award as a senior, was named the Mountain West Conference Defensive Player of the Year for the second straight season and was a unanimous choice for the All-MWC First Team again as well...Registered 11.5 sacks in his final campaign and also logged 16.5 tackles for loss among his career-best 58 tackles as a senior...A year earlier Hughes, who again was a finalist for both the Nagurski Trophy and Hendricks Award, led the nation with 15 sacks and six forced fumbles, taking advantage of every opportunity to separate opponents from the ball...Played sparingly in his first two seasons with the Horned Frogs, adjusting to the college game on the defensive side of the ball after starring as a running back in high school...Hughes has a nose for the ball and seeks out contact and while he was one of the best defensive ends at the collegiate level, he might yet be learning a new position in the pros should it be decided that his size and speed makes him better suited for linebacker...Colts add another pass rusher in the speedy Hughes.
