1. First round, 19th overall: Justin Pugh, OL, Syracuse
Pugh is a great fit for the Giants. He’s not an athletic freak like they’ve been going after in the early rounds the last few years, but Pugh is a guy who can play pretty much every position on the offensive line, and he should be an immediate starter right away for the G-Men. This is one of the smartest players in the entire draft, and he was gaining a lot of steam leading up to his selection. I wasn’t surprised he was a first rounder, but I thought he might slip out of the top 20. The Giants obviously felt like he could come in and be a key piece of their offense and start at right tackle, so they picked him at 19 overall. I think this is a very good pickup for them.
