John Hughes is the third Bearcat to be selected on the second day of the NFL draft going to the Cleveland Browns with the 87th overall pick. I like this pick for two reasons. 1) I am a Browns fan and think that Hughes adds valuable depth to what has been a pretty thin position for the Browns. 2) John Hughes really blew up this year with a monster senior year. You have to be excited for the guy.
With three picks in the first three rounds to date this is turning into one of the best drafts for the Bearcats in recent history, you could argue that it is the best ever. Prior to this draft UC never had multiple guys taken in the first three rounds of the draft. Its been a good night for the Bearcat Football family. Congrats to John Hughes.
