awesome article. but more importantly, he didn't give up a sack vs those 2 talented pass rushers. And in HS, he excelled as an athletic guard who could get to the 2nd level bc his HS offense ran the triple option (where G is more important than T really).
I think that played a big part in drafting Pugh. You can see he handles speed rushers very very well bc of his footwork. He played hockey growing up, and playing OT is always compared with "playing on skates" and with Pugh you can see why. This kid is the real deal and is coming in ready to be the Week 1 RT imho. He can already handle pass rushers that turned out to be at least 1 of the best up n comers in Irving. And all that practice vs C.Jones had to help. I'm loving this pick more and more. Just watch a play of him @ Syracuse bc its all thats needed to see the mobility/footwork and angles he takes. Our OL honestly could get back to 2008 level. Its only as good as the weakest link and DD was a weak link.
With Pugh, the unit should work much better. Beatty/Boothe can handle the left side of the line. Last yr, we struggled to the right (bc of DD and thus Snee really). With Pugh lined up outside Snee, I expect him to look more like the all pro than the 2012 version
