BIO: Second-team all-conference selection as a senior after starting six games and catching 17/161/1. Junior totals were 7/103/0, after missing the prior two seasons with leg injuries.
POSITIVES: Tough, blocking tight end with adequate hands in the short field. Plays with good pad level, strong at the point and rides opponents from their angle of attack when used on the line. Displays initial pop at the point of attack, gets movement from run blocks or anchors in pass protection. Good eye/hand coordination and soft hands as a pass-catcher.
NEGATIVES: Stiff, does not run well nor effective far off the line of scrimmage. Lacks explosion and has a history of knee injuries.
ANALYSIS: Pritchett had a solid senior campaign and made himself a draftable commodity though it would be late in the proceedings. Future at the next level all hinges on the results of his knee exams.
