Syracuse OT Justin Pugh to enter 2013 NFL Draft

US PRESSWIRE

First-team All-Big East tackle Justin Pugh will forgo his senior season and is highly ranked among offensive linemen.

Joe Shad of ESPN is reporting that Syracuse Orange junior offensive tackle Justin Pugh will enter the 2013 NFL Draft.

Pugh, who has only been a starter at Syracuse for two seasons, was a All-Big East first team selection following an impressive 2012 season in which he started all 13 games at tackle. He also started all 13 games his sophomore season in 2011.

In both years of having Pugh as a starter, Syracuse had a 1,000-yard rusher, with Antwon Bailey accomplishing the feat in 2012 and Delone Carter doing so in 2011.

As for where fans can expect to see Pugh go in the 2013 draft, SB Nation's Mocking the Draft has him as the No. 8-ranked offensive tackle, and he is No. 78 on the site's Top 100 Big Board.

Of course, Pugh's stock could improve or drop based on how he performs at the NFL Combine, so fans will want to keep an eye on that.
