Jerry Hughes DE Indianapolis Colts
Jerry Hughes, the Colts first round pick in 2010 who widely viewed as a huge disappointment, accumulated more arrests this weekend then he did sacks his entire first season. Hughes, as well as former Cowboys 6th round pick linebacker Stephen Hodge and TCU DT Cory Grant were all arrested for public intoxication on Saturday night.
The were arrested at around 2:30 AM at the Bank Nightclub when police allegedly noticed a disturbance inside the club that trickled outside to the sidewalk where they were arrested.
Hughes was the #31 selection in the 2010 draft, while Hughes was a 6th round selection in the 2009 draft who was featured once before on Shot of Ginn (he was released with an injury settlement last season). Grant started all 13 games for TCU last season, earning second team All-MWC recognition. Jerry Hughes and Stephen Hodge are both TCU alumni as well. Hughes was such an embarrassment that the Colts general manager allegedly said he "whiffed" on the pick, and that he should have selected now Rams starting LT Rodger Saffold.
