1 of 51 Linebackers named to the 2018 Butkus Award watch list.

According to NFL teams' preseason data provided by team sources, Pratt checks in 6-foot-2, 241-pounds with 31.5 inch arms, 8.75 inch hands, and a wingspan of 75.88 inches. They have him running the 40-yard dash in 4.55 seconds.

The Wolfpack defensive line was loaded with four future draft picks in 2017, but the program also had some quality linebackers who went under the radar. Pratt was one of those players, as he totaled 69 tackles with two pick-sixes, 5.5 tackles for a loss and two passes broken up. Pratt possesses a good build and some surprising speed.

Currently projected anywhere between the 2nd and 4th round.

Pratt plays the Mike for NC State but could play the Will if needed.

I think we will get him in the 2nd round.

I agree. I've been monitoring him a lot and really like him for rd 2. As I just mentioned in another thread, also look out for LB Vosean Joseph from FL. But I like Pratt better because of his size and he is a converted safety.

Thus far in 2018, Pratt has 91 tackles with 10 for a loss, 5.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and two passes broken up. The senior is playing really well. He is a strong and physical run defender with sideline-to-sideline speed. Pratt also has shown some pass-coverage skills, and that is not that surprising considering he came to N.C. State as a safety. Pratt could be a three-down starting inside linebacker early in his NFL career.

Reminder NC State lost their front 4 led by Chubb and...

 

 

Something tells me he will be on the Panthers short list with Thomas Davis retiring after the season.

We need to find a way to get 2 2nd round picks.

I think we only have 1 spot at LB going into offseason if we don’t resign Ish...

I don’t see any starting spots at LB either with Jones, Campbell, Fote, Duke...So any LB depth won’t be until 5th round or later IMO

Dibt waste your time
