Pugh is just the fourth Giants first-round draft choice to start every game in his rookie season since the 1970 merger. The others were linebacker Jim Files (1970), guard John Hicks (1974) and Taylor.
Pugh reported to training camp in July with modest expectations.
“My whole goal was just to contribute and help the team win in any way possible, if it was on special teams or as a starting right tackle,” he said. “I wanted to play my part and show these guys that I came here to play and play well.”
“You’re just showing the guys in this locker room that you’re reliable and this organization can count on you to go out there and play every snap, every week, and you take pride in that,” Pugh said. “
