Ryan Pugh
Position: C
Class:  4Sr
School: Auburn
Conference: Southeastern
HT: 6-1
WT: 290
40 Time: 5.36
Biography: Three-year starter who also saw action with the first team as a true freshman. All-Conference selection the past two years. Lined up at center and left tackle.

Positives: "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."

Negatives: 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.

Projection: FA
