SHORT ARMS NOT GOING TO STOP SYRACUSE’S PUGH

Posted by Kevin Bowen on March 11, 2013 – 11:00 am

Justin Pugh chuckles when he hears what his biggest weakness heading to the next level.
Shorts arms?

“Well it’s actually crazy,” the former Syracuse offensive tackle said of his ‘flaw.’

“I played three years never knowing I had short arms. It didn’t really hurt me then. I didn’t know I had short arms until I got to the Senior Bowl.”

Pugh played left tackle for the Orange but it’s the short arms that have scouts thinking he might have to move inside in the NFL.

Although Pugh might not agree with that assessment, he knows his versatility is looked at as a strength and is open to playing all over the line.

“I think I can play every position on the offensive line,” Pugh said. “I haven’t snapped, but I think with my football IQ I know I’d be good with the calls. It’d be just getting the snaps down, which is something that with coaching should come easy.”

In Pugh’s final season as a three-year starter for the Orange, the Syracuse offense that set a school record for total offense.

The pro system that Pugh played in under now Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone is something that he thinks will benefit him in making the adjustment to the NFL.

“We did a lot of zone blocking and stuff. We also did power scheme my freshman and sophomore seasons, so I’m accustomed to both styles of offense,” Pugh said.

“So it’s something that’s good for me, and being at the Senior Bowl I got more exposure to the inside zone and playing guard, so I was able to show my versatility.”

For Pugh, making the switch across the offensive line comes with getting his muscle memory down to whatever his position he lines up at.

One scout that isn’t too concerned with Pugh’s short arms is NFL Network Analyst Mike Mayock.

“He came in with short arms at the Senior Bowl, and everybody immediately wanted to move him to guard and I kind of go “no way,” Mayock said. “He looked like a late first round tackle to me, and I’m not going to move off that until he proves to me he can’t play.”
