BIO: Three-year starter who posted 56/4/1 as a senior after junior numbers of 80/3/1.5.
POSITIVES: Productive college linebacker with marginal size/speed numbers. Plays faster than his 40 time, displays outstanding lateral range and is effective in pursuit. Three-down defender with a good feel in coverage. Takes good angles to the action, finds his way through the trash and wraps up tackling.
NEGATIVES: Must improve his playing strength. Hesitant, not efficient and takes a lot of missteps.
ANALYSIS: Consistently productive at Syracuse, Pruitt has potential as a nickel linebacker for teams willing to overlook his 40 time.
