Daymeion Dante Hughes (born August 21, 1985 in Los Angeles, California) is an American football cornerback who currently plays for the San Diego Chargers of the NFL. He was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts in the third round of the 2007 NFL Draft. He played college football at California.

Looking to add some depth to the secondary, the Chargers signed Hughes last October. While he only played in one game last season with the Chargers, Hughes played in 24 games during two seasons for the Indianapolis Colts. Hughes is one of the founders of Gough Harde, an urban clothing line. An art major at Cal, Hughes took an interest in fashion as a teen and collaborated with close friend and business partner, Nikko Goudeau, to launch the clothing line in January. In December, the pair hosted a Monday Night Football event in Los Angeles to preview the line, with proceeds from the night benefitting Snoop Dogg’s Inner-City Youth Football League.
