Three-year starter at center who initially walked on at Louisville. Named Honorable Mention All-ACC in 2016. Awarded a scholarship after two seasons with the Cardinals and earned a starting role in 2014 after entering fall camp as a reserve.
Productive and durable college center with minimal upside for the next level. Sets with a wide base, bends his knees and fires off the snap. Stays square, gets his hands into defenders and rides them from their angle of attack. Jolts defenders with violent hand punch, strong for his size and plays through the whistle.
Lacks size, bulk and overmatched at the point. Gets pushed back into the pocket and cannot handle large defenders.
Hughley was a terrific college center who got the most from his ability but has size limitations and marginal upside.
