Pos: 
Athletic three-down linebacker who plays disciplined, instinctive football. Quickly reads and diagnoses the action, stays with assignments and does not bite on ball fakes. Gets depth on pass drops, shows range out to the sidelines and quickly collapses outside-in against the run. Fires up the field and shows a closing burst in any direction. Sells out on the blitz, wraps up tackling and brings ball carriers down in the open field. Fluidly flips his hips in transition and displays a good head for the ball.
Neg: 
Not forceful on the blitz. Struggled during Senior Bowl practices and was consistently beaten in coverage drills.
Analysis: 
Pratt possesses the size, speed and instincts to develop into a starter for a variety of defensive schemes at the next level. He must prove Senior Bowl practices were an exception, but his three days in Mobile will result in a hit to his draft stock.
