Scouting Report: Germaine Pratt
School: NC State Position: Outside Linebacker Class: Senior Height: 6’3 Weight: 245 Projected Draft Round: 3-5
A converted safety, Pratt looks the part of the modern NFL linebacker. He moves superbly in space, and his coverage skills are polished and versatile – able to cover all types of receivers. He has a long frame, is agile, and moves in all directions well. The question is his inexperience at the position. From the snap, he looks like he is still working things out, and needs to react instead of think. That being said, he has tremendous upside, and is the type of linebacker prospect that can’t be used as a defensive mismatch by today’s offensive coordinators.
