PLAYERS: Justin Pugh
TEAMS: Syracuse Orange
PICK: Justin Pugh, OT/G, SyracuseANALYSIS: I hate this pick so much. I question whether or not he can even be a tackle in the NFL; a right tackle at best. I've always seen him as more of a guard. I've never had Pugh graded as a first round prospect, despite all the recent hype about him. I really think there are much better lineman in this draft, and plenty of better defensive players the Giants would be much better off with. I really don't understand this selection in any way.GRADE: D- Please Comment with your opinions! If you have any questions, please email me at mattheffler13@gmail.com
