PSJ’s Pryor spotlighted at combine

Published: Thursday, March 6, 2014 at 09:32 AM.

Pryor ran under 4.6 in the 40-yard dash, placing eighth among safeties.

Most importantly he ran an identical time to Ha Ha Clinton-Nix out of Alabama, with whom Pryor is locked in a contest for top safety, at least according to the experts.

He hoisted 18 reps of 225 pounds in the bench press, which was fourth among safeties.

Pryor did not participate in shuttle runs or cone drills and his vertical jump and broad jump, Davenport wrote, ranked in the lower end of the safety class.

Bleacher Report’s B.J. Kissel wrote those weren’t the drills where Pryor figured to win or lose with scouts anyway.

“When it comes to physicality at the safety position,” he wrote, “most draft enthusiasts already know about Louisville’s Calvin Pryor.”

Kissel said Pryor most needed to show scouts “he can be trusted to play in space.”
