Vikings sign 1st-rounder Hughes, complete draft class deals

EAGAN, Minn. (AP) The Minnesota Vikings have signed first-round pick Mike Hughes, putting their entire eight-player draft class under contract the week before training camp begins.

The 5-foot-10, 189-pound Hughes was the 30th overall selection, the highest drafted defensive player in Central Florida program history. Hughes made a strong impression during spring practices with the Vikings, taking turns at the nickel cornerback position and also working as a kickoff returner.

Hughes had four interceptions for the Knights in 2017 to tie for the team lead and a 31.8-yard average on kickoff returns to rank fourth in the FBS.
