Pryor going pro; projection for possible first round selection

Batty, however, says Pryor is the best hitting safety in the class – listing that attribute as Pryor’s top two strengths – with excellent vision, great range and build for a safety, is fast and athletic, can play either safety position and is a good tackler.

The negatives Batty lists are “not that good in coverage”, Pryor’s not having played against the best collegiate competition and noting that Pryor must stay under control or face fines/suspensions at the next level giving his aggressive tackling style.

“If the Cowboys are looking for a guy who could put fear in receivers, this is your guy,” Batty wrote. “Pryor plays with a tenacious attitude, paired with non-stop effort.”

He could, Batty added as a bad side, get fined or miss an open tackle trying to make the big hit too often.

But he adds that Pryor’s draft stock is likely to rise as the draft process unfolds and could become the top safety in the class by draft day.
