2nd round prospect: Justin Pugh, OT - Syracuse

14 posts in this topic

Got a new prospect for you guys. Justin Pugh may not be a very popular name right now, which is good because by April he could actually be sneaking into the first round.

If we could land Pugh in the second I would be absolutely ecstatic. I really study my tackles and I can tell when a guy is going to have a nice career in the NFL, this guys got it. Pugh is a beast and will be one of those linemen that you plug in from day one and receive immediate impact and then the only time your hear their name is for a pro bowl selection.

"Pugh is an effortless mover for a 290-pound tackle with good body control and coordination to take on blocks and mirror rushers in space. Pugh needs to continue to fill out his frame and spend more time in the weight room, but the sky is the limit for the rising junior."

did have some injuries in the past that will have to get checked out, but he do a pretty good job at protecting the blindside this year.

Yeah injuries scare me too, especially how badly we've been burned in the past. But Pugh is not an over weight lazy player with knee problems.

If he looks 100% I see him sneaking into the first.

Agree

The OT field has thinned a lot with Lewan and Matthews going back to school and some of these guys like Pugh,and Aboushi will likely see their stock rise and move into the first round. I was hoping we could get a guy in the 1st round without reaching but if not hopefully someone close to Pugh's caliber will be available in the 2nd.

I like Aboushi better as a LT option, however would see Pugh as the next best guy.

So if we got Pugh would you be on the cut Gross bandwagon?

Personally I wouldn't jump to that conclusion if we got an OT early. I think Gross' cap number is something that needs to be dealt with but wouldn't necessarily want to see him walk. Even if we get a stud left tackle Gross is still a very good right tackle (could slide back in at left if necessary) and could help groom a young lad.

Personally of we don't let gross walk then I don't want to draft a tackle in the first or second round I would prefer a guard. Or someone that will move inside to guard

Not nessascarily, but if they do let him go I feel like Pugh could step in and do just as good if not better.

    • WaPo isn't partners with the CIA. Amazon Web Services, which sells servers to thousands upon thousands of companies and websites, sold servers to the CIA. You can buy your own now right here. Does that make you partners with the WaPo? https://aws.amazon.com When Jimmy Dore says "600 million dollars is more than the Washington Post is even worth!" he's being a dumbass. The Washington Post didn't make the deal with the CIA so what they're worth is irrelevant. Amazon Web Services sold them servers, and they happen to have the same parent company as the Washington Post. The thing about Jimmy Dore is that he is absolutely utterly obsessed with Hillary Clinton. Like, utterly obsessed. Everything goes back to Hillary Clinton to him, and his obsession has morphed into skepticism of the Russian investigation, because he views it as an excuse for why Hillary lost. He can't accept the Russia stuff being true because if it's true then maybe Clinton didn't lose on merit. And so his skepticism of the Russia investigation has led him down the path of 'well the Deep State is conspiring against Trump' and 'the Deep State is the real true evil.' He fact-checks nothing. It's Alex Jones level poo.
    • Anyone who can equate any modern presidency at any moment in time with the embarrassment we see right now is off their gd rocker. What is really telling is that we now see that Trump can't just be casual.  He can't just talk it up with other peers.  He can't just chill the f*ck out. Seriously....people like this are weird as hell.   It's been obvious he's the head of a business but not a business savvy guy since the Apprentice.  I don't understand why we want the Sharknado meets 80s bad guy of Presidents.
