2013 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Justin Pugh, OT, Syracuse
Pugh moves very well for his height. Could afford to add some more bulk through his core, but strength is not a big concern. An excellent pass protector. Mirrors very well and shows a nice hand punch to throw defenders off line. Uses opponents' momentum to his advantage very well and plays with enough balance to avoid collapsing when bull-rushed.
Bends well at the waist and knee as a run blocker. Pad level is above-average in consistency (even late in games) compared to other tackles. Can handle his own when zone blocking. Really looks to unload when blocking in the open field.
Has a good mean streak and finishes plays hard. Above-average awareness when spotting the blitz. Can move cleanly to the second level, but will occasionally play too aggressive and miss a solid block by lunging.
Pugh is a hard-working prospect and should hear his name called in the late-second to early third round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
