WR Kofi Hughes Met With The Redskins

The Redskins met with another Indiana WR for a pre-draft visit.

Last month the Redskins brought in Indiana WR Cody Latimer for a visit, and this month it's being reported that his teammate Kofi Hughes(6'1", 215lbs) has also visited the Redskins.  Latimer and Hughes are on different ends of the draft spectrum.  Cody Latimer is getting 1st Round consideration, and Hughes is currently the #700 overall prospect and the 97th best WR according to CBS Sports.  Hughes will most likely be an UDFA signing, but he does have some qualities that will give him a chance to compete in training camp.

Former Cathedral star Kofi Hughes came into Indiana’s pro day hoping to prove he’s faster than believed. Though he said he felt he could have run a faster 40 time, he still walked away pleased with his 4.52-second mark. Hughes also bettered Latimer’s 23-rep bench performance at the Combine, putting up 225 pounds 24 times.
Hughes finished with 132 career receptions for 1,956 yards and 13 touchdowns. He ran the 40-yard dash between 4.49 and 4.52 seconds at his campus Pro Day workout. He also registered a vertical leap of 35 1/2 inches,and a 10-foot-6 broad jump while recording 24 reps of 225 pounds in the bench press. As a senior, Hughes was a team captain. He caught 47 passes for 739 yards and seven touchdowns.

Positive: Three-year starter who posted 47 receptions, 739 receiving yards, and 7 TDs as a senior. Strong possession receiver best in underneath coverage. Competes to make catches, outmuscles defenders, and shows focus as well as concentration. Makes the difficult catch with opponents draped on him, extends his hands and offers the quarterback a target. Consistently makes catches away from his frame.

Negative: Lacks the second gear and cannot run to the deep throw. Struggles making the over the shoulder reception running full speed.

Analysis: Hughes is an underrated receiver who offers possibilities as a fifth wide out on an NFL roster.
