Displays good body control on the move in the run game. Quickly is able to get out of his stance and reach block with the range/coordination to routinely chop down defenders off his frame. Does a nice job generating leverage for himself when asked to get into blocks off his frame and seal inside. Isn’t real heavy handed or powerful, but has a good first step, extends his arms well into contact and initially can seal from the football.
However, lacks ideal anchor strength and can really be jolted on contact when someone is lined up over his face. Is quick to turn his defender from the play and pull the rug out from under him when getting bullied inside, but lacks the strength to consistently hold the point. Is a much better move player who looks comfortable sticking to defenders on slide down blocks and using his athleticism to create angles in the run game.
Impression: A gifted move player who has the ability to slide his feet, maintain balance and cut down defenders in space. Needs to get stronger, but has a skill set that could definitely stick in more of a zone-blocking scheme."
Positive: Smart, tough lineman who lacks great physical skills. Quickly gets off the snap, keeps his head on a swivel, and shows great awareness. Blocks with good lean, keeps his feet moving, and stays square. Terrific position blocker who seals defenders from the action. Works well with teammates.
Negative: Gets minimal movement run blocking. Struggles when faced off against big defensive tackles. Marginally effective in motion.
Analysis: Pugh is a workmanlike lineman who lacks the size and athleticism to play at the next level. His competitive nature and feel for the game could help him catch on as an inexpensive utility blocker."
Negatives: Allows defenders under his pads... Not very strong at POA, can be pushed back into the pocket... Will bend at the waist and lose his balance... Loses ground to strong bull rushers... Needs a lot of strength work."
Weaknesses: Plays with inconsistent leverage. Will lunge and lean on defenders, which allow them to slip off his blocks. Slow initially off the snap, which allow defenders to drive him into the backfield. Struggles with defenders lined up directly over him.
Projection: Seventh rounder. Pugh will compete for a roster spot as a backup."
