Analysis

Strengths

Powerfully built lower half. Athletic. Impressive cut blocker. Shows good technique and uses this skill in both the run and pass game. Understands positioning and leverage. Shows consistent hand positioning. Keeps legs moving on contact. Shows the natural ability to pluck the football and turn up field.

Weaknesses

Is a bit of a 'tweener, as he's most effective when his bulk is more like that of a running back. Narrow upper body, lacks great functional power. Won't push or drive defenders out of the hole. Will waste some steps in the backfield. Struggles with moving targets.

Bottom Line

Pryor is an athletic fullback with a powerful lower body. He's not a powerful blocker, but does a nice job with hand and body positioning, in addition to impressive cut blocking skills. The big issue for him is to prove he can maintain his athletic advantage while having adequate bulk for a fullback.
