With the 70th pick the Tennessee Titans select Justin Pugh, G/OT, Syracuse

STRENGTHS: Very good range and mobility. Good feet. Will sit into his blocks. Experienced player. Plays with body control and balance. Gets to the second level easily. Good pad level.

WEAKNESSES: Very short arms. Lacks ideal offensive tackle size. Doesn't possess a lot of core strength, can be bull rushed back. Not a quick twitch athlete, doesn't respond well to sudden moves. Hand usage is inconsistent.

BOTTOM LINE Pugh is a seasoned starter at offensive tackle with very good movement skills. However, he lacks adequate arm length and size to stick at offensive tackle going forward. His best fit will likely be as an offensive guard in a zone-blocking scheme.

My thoughts: Probably the Titans biggest weakness is inside at the Guard position. I think Pugh steps in day 1 as a starter and helps solidify a shaky interior line.

Pick was made at 1:15 AM EST, Buffalo (BroncosfanGuy) are on the clock.
