Justin Pugh was drafted by the Giants in the first round, 19th overall pick, of the 2013 NFL Draft. Pugh attended Syracuse University from 2009 to 2012 where he started 34 games in his career, and earned All-Big East Conference honors in three consecutive seasons. Pugh has impressed the Giants coaching staff and he is engaged in a battle with David Diehl to be the Giants' starting right tackle. Pugh talked about his transition to the NFL, difference between college and the pro’s, and making the switch to right tackle. “It's the sheer volume of plays. We tried to simplify things when we were at Syracuse. You master a few plays against a couple looks. Now, the whole playbook is in my hands. There are so many different looks because teams run so many different things. In college, it's definitely more vanilla,” Pugh said, via Michael Fenson of the Star-Ledger. “I'm just in at right tackle right now. So I'm focused on learning that position. Obviously, you have to know what the guy next to you is doing -- so I am learning guard at the same time. All five guys need to be on the same page. So during camp I might get some reps at left guard, right guard, wherever they need me at. The biggest thing right now is to work at right tackle, get that down, and once I have that down move on to the next thing so I can be that guy who can come in and play wherever they need me to.”
