Having traded a 2013 5th round pick in order to move up to select T.Y. Hilton in the 2012 NFL Draft, Ryan Grigson mortgaged a part of the team's future by trading away a 2014 4th round pick to Cleveland Browns for a 5th round selection this year.
With that 5th round selection, the Colts added another body to their defensive line rotation, and a big body at that. UT Martin's Montori Hughes stands at 6ft 4in, 329lbs and can play either defensive end or nose tackle in Chuck Pagano's 3-4 defense.
GM Ryan Grigson gushed over Hughes, saying he can "move like a cat", whilst head coach Pagano compared Hughes' movement skills (in combination with his size) to Baltimore Ravens defensive lineman Haloti Ngata - high praise for the 22 year old, though expecting Hughes to have a Ngata-like impact on this defense would be incredibly premature.no comments
