    Looks good. Gordon automatically becomes our #5 CB.

    OSU corners were beasts, Hughes for sure. He'll make it to our roster for sure.

    This guy looks like a baller. I like the way he stayed with receivers and was able to play the ball by getting his hand up and knocking down those deep passes. Only worry is NFL elite speed guys are going to blow by him. I like his competitiveness though.

    Got this from an Oregon State Beavers website. Dude looks like a flat out baller and physical corner. I'm liking this pick too.

    http://www.osubeavers.com/sports/m-footbl/spec-rel/042609aag.html

    Former Oregon State cornerback Brandon Hughes has been drafted with the 12th pick in the 5th round (148 overall) by the San Diego Chargers on Sunday in the 2009 National Football League Draft.

    Hughes earned four letters while making 43 career starts, which ties for the sixth-most in Oregon State history. The Bloomington, Ill. native was a two-time All-Pac-10 selection broke up 23 passes during his final two seasons at OSU. He entered the season as a candidate for the Lott Trophy as well as the Jim Thorpe Award.

    With the selection of Hughes, who along with Keenan Lewis combined to form one of the best cornerback duos in the Pac-10, it marks the first time in Oregon State history that two cornerbacks have taken in the same NFL Draft.

    When are they going to teach these kids to tackle at the waist?

    Those shoulder tackles simply won't work in the NFL.
