Ourlads' Profile:

2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about MIKE HUGHES: Central Florida, 5101 189 4.50. Junior entry from New Bern, NC. First-team corner and second-team return specialist in the AAC. One-year starter who transferred from Garden City Community College. Good initial reactions with a quick smooth pedal when backed off. Very quick feet. Solid in press coverage with a physical jam to disrupt a receiver off the line. Shows the patience to ignore the first move away from his leverage. Rarely beat off the line in press. Mirrors cuts well and is solid in transition. Sudden break and drive on the quick throw in front of him. Has a burst out of his break in all directions. Fluid turn and run both pressed and backed off. Normally maintains cushion and times his turn well. Reacts to double moves and can quickly recover in the rare instance he oversteps a cut. Good zone awareness seeing threats. Shows the speed to run with vertical routes and stays in phase with good eye discipline keeping his focus on the receiver. Good ball skills getting a hand to the catch point. Not a physical tackler but has good fundamentals and drives through tackles with knee bend. Can get dragged at times but rarely misses. Solid player who has some versatility to play corner and nickel in the right scheme. Also has top flight return skills. 2017 stats: 49 T, 11 PBU, 1 FF, 1 BK, 4 INT (1 TD), 14-233 PR (1 TD), 20-635 KOR (2 TD). BTR:left 5.07, right 4.94. OSR:8/41. Second/ third round.
