PSJ’s Pryor spotlighted at combine

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

According to Omar Kelly with the South Florida Sun-Sentinel – according to published reports Pryor is working out in South Florida with All-Pro safety Eric Berry – Pryor “killed” the position drills. “Solid work.”

The surprise of the Combine was that while Pryor weighed 207 pounds, his listed weight, he measured 5-foot-11, three inches under the height listed in the University of Louisville program.

For those who watched Pryor on the basketball court in high school, and the two marches to the state final four his final two seasons, his stat-line filling performances take on a greater stature considering he was less than six feet tall.

And the competitive streak so on display during his time in Port St. Joe was also part of the impression Pryor left behind at the Combine.

“I’m a playmaker,” he succinctly told the NFL Network in an interview before he ran the 40-yard dash.

According to most experts, safety is a two-horse race between the cover skills of Clinton-Dix and the physical playmaking of Pryor.

“Guys know that I can play football,” Pryor said in a podcast with Davenport on Kellogg’s Komments earlier this month. “They know that I’m physical, that I have the strength to play. They just want to see how fast I can run.”
