How we came to that prediction is almost as interesting as the pick itself. Late developments with two players on the Packers' wish list potentially will have a major impact on how the first round shapes up. In the end, we went with Syracuse OT Justin Pugh over two other strong possibilities.
BEST OF MAXIM
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...

1.19 New York Giants Justin Pugh, OT, Syracuse, (6-5, 307)
The New York Giants continue to do what they do. It’s rarely a sexy pick from the G-Men and this is not different. The Giants know that Eli Manning needs to stay safe in order for them to be successful and Pugh can step in right away at right tackle or right guard. He could also fill-in on the left side if needed.
With the 19th selection of the 2013 NFL Draft, the New York Football Giants select Guard Justin Pugh out of Syracuse.
Pugh started 34 games in his career, and earned All Big East honors in three consecutive seasons; second team as a sophomore, and first team as a junior and season. Pugh entered the draft after his junior season.
Pugh is a seasoned starter at offensive tackle with...
Sanity prevailed in C.J. Fair’s decision on whether to jump to the NBA.
“After talking it over with my family and my coaches, I decided another year at Syracuse was best for me. I’m excited about working hard with my teammates to put together another great season and graduating has also been a goal of mine.”

Turns out, we had good reason to be confused since C.J. was even more confused than we were.
"On Sunday, I had decided to stay one more year," Fair...
