Pratt was already a top 100 guy IMO but after that performance he just made himself so duckets. If he continues to test well at the combine/pro day he could find himself top 50 discussion. I'm also interested in the kid from Maryland. Tre Watson. Anyone with any insight, perhaps a Maryland fan/alum?
Some breakdown here...
https://thedraftnetwork.com/2019/01/20/ ... re-watson/

I think he will be a good player but I think he is being overhyped a little bit. He plays tall and is a little stiff, I don't see the ability to be one of the better coverage LBs in this class. I think he's a way more athletic Vince Williams.....which is a start, but I still think we need to find a better coverage LB. I see a really good chase and tackle LB who has a chance at developing into a decent coverage guy.

Bottom line, I think he makes the Steelers better and I'd spend a 2nd round pick on him if he's available at 50.

Watching him [Pratt] today in the senior bowl I found myself not impressed. There were some other prospects that looked the part though.

One guy who I'm very interested in now is David Long, the LB from West Virginia. He's an explosive player and does a good job getting to the ball carrier. Also looks comfortable in coverage. Not the biggest guy at 5'11" 230lbs but I like what he brings to the table.

The Senior Bowl had some 'other' players IMO that stood out...

Daylon Mack DT
Charles Omenihu DE

I think S Adderley has made himself some money.

OLine Chris Lindstrom and Dalton Risner blocked well. Running game stood out.
OLine Elgton Jenkins and Tytus Howard/Andre Dillard held up to the hype.

LJ Collier somewhat of a tweener DE/OLB.... Not sure what to make of him. Solid though.

Terrill Hanks Raw. OLB/ILB? Solid

@FC - you said you did not trust D. Bush becasue he has less than 50 solo tackes throughout his career with Michigan. Does that also go for Mack Wilson who has even less solo tackles than Bush in any year?
