2010 NFL Draft, Pick 31: Colts Select DE Jerry Hughes

With the 31st pick in the 2010 NFL draft, the Colts select...

TCU DE Jerry Hughes

The Colts were expected by most folks to go offensive line here. Indiana OL and hometown guy Roger Saffold was a name often connected to them.

Hughes might just be the best pass-rusher in this draft, according to SB Nation's Stampede Blue. He'll play defensive end in the Colts 4-3 defense. The Colts place a high premium on defensive ends (Dwight Freeney, Robert Mathis) so while the pick is surprising it makes sense.
