Hey SPH, I just came across this CLASSIC COMBINE video from you 2 years ago:
Please go to the 1:05 mark and rewatch your comments on OLB prospect Jerry Hughes.
Gosselin & Bob McGinn (2 of the top 5 national newspaper mocksters) both had sources tell them that Hughes was the top target for Ted Thompson there to pair with Clay Matthews, with the #24 pick. But Bryan Bulaga slid way down from a possible top 10 pick, and the Packers had to take him.
Hughes has done nothing at all as a hand down 4-3 DE and the Colts and their fans have given up on him.
But they appear set to switch to a 3-4 now, which means what for Freeney (Mathis is a FA).
Was Hughes a bust, or was he miscast by the comical Colts? They've made tons of mistakes obviously. You seemed very high on his prospects, at least as a stand-up OLB in a 3-4, as I was --and still am.
I want the Packers to trade for Hughes.
