Summary

Hughes saw a drop in his sack rate the past two years while playing OLB in Rex Ryan's 3-4 scheme. He was much more effective during his first two years in Buffalo, with many of them spent as a pure pass rushing DE with limited responsibilities in coverage. The coaching and defensive philosophy changes in Buffalo this year should simplify his role and allow him to return to his previous form. As the team's most proven pass rusher who is also capable against the run, he should see a large number of snaps each week and put up solid DE2 numbers. (June 5)
