Ourlads' Profile:

2010 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JERRY HUGHES: TCU, 6016 255 4.68. Two-year starter that is intense, athletic, and competitive. Projects as an outside rusher in a 3-4 scheme. Accelerates off the ball and is disruptive in his play. Gets in the throwing lane with his hands up. Better versus the pass than the run at this point. Works to the quarterback from snap to whistle. Can burst off a block at times. Natural pass rush ability. Has a 1.65 10- yard time. His upfield quickness helps him make plays. Plays with control and violence. Durable and can play hurt. Can be single blocked and pushed around the corner. Needs to work on more counter moves. A former high school running back, he plays the game from sideline to sideline. Relies on quickness to stop the run. Fair strength at the point. Hard to tie up on a reach block. Can flatten out and turn the corner. Will not turn down contact. Had 127 career tackles, 40 1/2 tackles for loss, 28 1/2 sacks, and 8 forced fumbles. Edge speed:left 1.82, right 1.93. OSR:2/35 for defensive ends. First/second round. (A-33, H-9 3/4, BP-26, 10-1.65).
