OT Pugh Gets Mobbed After Giants Pick
After the New York Giants selected him 19th overall in the NFL draft on Thursday night, former Syracuse OT Justin Pugh — along with his family and friends — joined the ranks of “Most Memorable NFL Draft Pick Reactions Ever.”
For the first 1:45 of the video above, Pugh’s family and friends did their best to stay silent as he spoke excitedly with the Giants’ brass. Once he was off the phone, they all mobbed him in celebration.
Their reaction was understandable, as Pugh was projected as a mid-second round pick prior to the draft. It was enough of a surprise to overcome the fact that they’re all Eagles fans at heart (Pugh grew up and played high school football outside Philadelphia in Holland, PA).
