Playable Football Positions
An under the radar prospect who turned some heads here today is Tennessee-Martin’s Montori Hughes. Hughes is a big boy, but made some really nice plays. Hughes is a big bodied tackle who has surprising quicks. He was able to clog things up for the linebackers at the line today. When he made a play today, he made everyone knew about it as he was real fired up at points today.Should be on the jets radar going into the later half of the draft. Montori Hughes had one of the funniest moments of the week. After a John Jenkins agility drill, he yelled out after the Georgia product, calling him a: "big boy with little boy dreams." Hughes is a lot like that, always jawing but picking up his teammates on both sides of the ball rather than calling them out."Leadership" is a word that was used more often than not when the sidelines would talk about Hughes. The small-school prospect was a big reason the South squad had a bit more of a "team" feel to it, as Hughes became part of the glue that held them together in even a short time. This is the kind of guy coaches want on their team. He's also a great player, using his size to set up blockers and his surprising speed to cut through them. For a small-school guy, he's surprisingly technical and not just a mauler.
