The Indianapolis Colts selected former UT Martin defensive tackle Montori Hughes with their fifth round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Hughes was a Skyhawk for two years after transferring from the University of Tennessee but earned All-OVC honors with 42 tackles and 4 sacks this past season . His junior season with UTM included seven starts that resulted in 30 tackles including a 10 tackle performance against Eastern Illinois.

His time at Tennessee was highlighted primarily by his freshmen year, in which Hughes played in all 13 games that resulted in 20 tackles.

Hughes was the first OVC player drafted this year, and the first Skyhawk to be drafted since Fred Thomas in the 1996 went to the Seattle Seahawks in the second round.
