The NFL Combine began in Indianapolis Saturday, Feb. 23, and the Buffalo Bills organization is expected to be shopping for an offensive guard. NFL Network will have live coverage of the NFL Combine from Feb. 23 through Feb. 26.
The Bills may lose Andy Levitre to free agency due to the NFL salary cap and one of the two prospects the organization may pay close attention to at the NFL Combine is Justin Pugh, Syracuse University.
At the NFL Combine Saturday Syracuse offensive tackle Justin Pugh ran an average of 5.1 seconds in his two 40-yard dash attempts.
Justin Pugh, who was coached at Syracuse by the Buffalo Bills new head coach, would be a better fit as an offensive guard for the Bills due to his good footwork and agility. The biggest concern about Pugh is the length of his arms, which at 31.5” is considered short for an NFL offensive lineman.
Speculation is that Justin Pugh will go in the third or even possibly the early fourth round of the NFL Draft. The Buffalo Bills may not focus as intently on Pugh at the NFL Combine, as new head coach Doug Marrone has likely shared a great wealth of knowledge about what Justin Pugh can bring to the Bills organization already.
