 Overview

  Pough finished his career as the all-time leader in tackles for losses (71) in the FCS, earning MEAC Defensive Player of the Year honors in 2012. Scouts took notice, making him the first Howard player to ever be invited to the East-West Shrine Game, where Pough consistently stood out.

Pugh is definitely a defensive prospect worth watching due to his athleticism and competitive nature, and could be one of the first players selected in April who attended the Shrine Game.


 Analysis

  STRENGTHS: Showed intensity and leadership qualities at Shrine Game practices, playing with a high level of energy. Excellent flexibility and agility for the position. Stays low with good fundamentals. Natural athleticism and fluidity, displaying the coordination and smooth hips to play in space. Lean, athletic frame, and does a nice job of playing balanced and low to the ground. Nonstop motor and brings constant energy to the field.

WEAKNESSES: Tends to lower his head, keeping his eyes in the wrong place. "Small-school" prospect will need to shed concerns over level of competition he faced in college. Room to improve his instincts and get stronger to improve his stack-and-shed ability.

--Dane Brugler

He’s 6’2” and 235 and he has long arms and just needs to get a little bit bigger and stronger,” said Roth. “His production was great at Howard. He’s got pass rush ability, a great motor.
