Much appreciation to MobileSaint for his participation.
Jerry Hughes, DE/OLB, TCU
"Hughes arrived at TCU in 2006 as an all-district, 200-pound running back from Sugar Land. He had rushed for 1,412 yards and 19 TDs. He had also made the all-district team as a kick returner.Hughes never pictured himself as a defensive end in high school, but he won the Ted Hendricks Award as a senior in 2009 as the nation's best at the position.
And now, four years after his running back career ended, he is working out for teams at the NFL Scouting Combine and is rated the fifth best outside linebacker in the draft by NFLDraftScout.com -- and he has yet to play the position full time.
If he was able to make the transition from a high school rusher to college defensive pass rusher, however, imagine the possibilities in the NFL.
