The New York Giants have selected Syracuse OT Justin Pugh with the 19th overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft.

Pros: Showed a good overall grasp of technique at the Senior Bowl. Practiced player with an outstanding overall sense of the game.

Cons: Short-armed-player who lacks elite power -- may have to skip inside to right guard.

What he brings to the team: Discipline. Pugh isn't a flashy player, but he's the perfect pick for the Giants, who always want players who will adhere to the system.

Was it the right pick? I don't like it. I had Pugh as a late second-round talent, and I think the Giants could have done a lot better from a talent perspective.
