    The most impressive thing about Pryor is how fast he plays. He plays at full speed all the time.

    The only way I am ok with this however, is if it precludes a trade up in the second to grab the best DL available.

    He would tandem great with either Church or Wilcox. Talk about a trio of hitters with Pryor having the best cover skills of them all. I have a hunch if Baltimore gets that 16 pick they will be picking him. He fits with what they look for a player.

    Baltimore w/ Elam and Pryor would be a nice 1-2 combo

    Ive been looking at Terrence Brooks videos and comparing them to Pryor and Dix, I have no idea how these two are rated higher then Brooks. Brooks is a better athlete, makes more plays. I wonder if they are playing too much into this height and him being a Cb before last yr. Guy reminds me of Earl Thomas' game. Im officially on the Brooks wagon. RD2 pick

    Pryor and Wilcox? I would definitely love that tandem. Seems to have good range I dont really know about his turnover production?

    Cowboys can use an intimidating playmaker at FS. Only question for me is his range. I saw a lot of big hits, but not much plays on the ball. Is he that much of an upgrade over Wilcox? Wilcox can lay the wood too, but is subpar in coverage.

    I'm doubting they draft this kid given that they just spent a 3rd round pick on Wilcox just last year. We'll see though.

    Love him, but really worried about the front four creating some pressure enough for it to even matter.

    Brooks makes so many plays its not even funny. You dont see Dix or Pryor making the types of plays Brooks does. And he's physical too

    I agree I think the big run this year will be on QB's and WR's, which would be perfect for us.

    Pryor in the second maybe...even a slight move up in the second.
    Not in the mid 1st round for me though. Or at least not right now from what I've seen.
    I really like him a lot though.

    Yeah, if Pryor is there in the second, then you do whatever you need to do to move up and get him with your 2nd rounder. If we came out of the draft with Aaron Donald in the first and Pryor in the second, it would go a long, long way towards fixing the defense.

    An ideal situation would be to trade back a little and still nab Donald and then trade up a little and grab Pryor. The trade back in the first would enable us to probably move up in the second and still retain our 3rd round pick. We could get a starting OLB in the 3rd, which is a distinct possibility with 43 OLB's because they typically don't go quite as early as others. That would be a new starter at each level of the defense. It is possible if things fall right.

    However, I think Pryor will be gone by the second. If it plays out like this though, it would be great.

    YES! I watched a bunch of Brooks over the weekend, and I was so impressed. A really easy mover. Fluid athlete who flies around, makes plays on the ball and an aggressive tackler. Also was moved down into the slot a bunch, and blitzed off the edge. An all-around gamer. Can definitely play that "true" FS for us.

    This. They have to address d-line in the 1st round.

    I think Baylor's Dixon is a really interesting prospect. I will be interested to see how he measures and tests. He made a lot big hits at Baylor. I think helped plug a lot of holes in the Baylor defense. I think he is more than just an in the box safety and could see him rise in the draft process.

    Right now they have him rated 2-3 round. Im willing to bet he bumps himself up to a legit RD2 guy after the combine. Dix and Pryor are Images of barry church. Theyre game is based off more of being physical. If thats the case just let Wilcox develop and run with Church and Wilcox. Dix and Pryor are going to end up playing SS type of safety watch.
