CB Dante Hughes
Hughes will also provide depth at cornerback; prior to his addition, the Chargers were only carrying three corners on the roster.
Now that we know where Hughes fits in, the real question is how he fits in. To find out, we turn things over to Eric Hatrz, the publisher of ColtPower.com.
"Dante Hughes was a third-round pick who never really justified his draft position. He has been the Colts' nickelback at times in the past, but the emergence of rookies Jerraud Powers and Jacob Lacey made him expendable this year, and truthfully, he hasn't been missed.
"Colts fans often point to Hughes as one of the prime examples of Bill Polian's so-called 'third-round curse,' but the truth is Hughes hasn't been a total bust. He's contributed at times, but his draft position may have led to unrealistic expectations in Indianapolis.
"As far as his playmaking ability goes, he may not be a lockdown cover corner, but does a good job when he is in position. I was impressed with his skills around the ball in training camp this year, noting several hustle plays and lay-outs to knock down passes. He also was more vocal than I noticed in the past and seemed to be a solid veteran. My guess is he was one of the final cuts for the 53-man roster.
"I think a fresh start and a different system could be a good thing for Hughes. He'll never be a starter in anything but an emergency, but he can be a serviceable nickel and backup."
