I like Pugh, and yes one team had him rated as an elite OL prospect. We were not that team.
He is not comparable to Lane Johnson as far as potential is concerned. Every other team had had Johnson, Joeckel, and Fischer as the elite 3 and then there are the rest.
If he can pass protect then we got what was advertised. If he can run block as well then we got what I really wanted. I felt we needed a young roadgrader to reinvigorate the running game. Snee has 2-3 years left at the most. Other than him we don't have a legitimate mauler. We need one to be our best.
