Syracuse, NY (Sports Network/WSYR-TV) - Former Syracuse offensive tackle Justin Pugh has been drafted by the New York Giants.
The Giants selected 19th overall in the NFL Draft on Thursday.
Check out his reaction below:
Pugh, who was a junior last season, is a 2011 and 2012 All-Big East First Team selection.
He started every game he played for the Orange.
The Holland, PA native missed four games in 2012 with an injury, but returned to help lead a Syracuse rushing attack that averaged 187 yards per game on the ground last season, which the Orange ended with a win over West Virginia in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium on Dec. 29.
