What the scouts are saying:

"Pryor manned the deep middle at Louisville, but attacks the run like a strong safety and offers plus ball skills." (Evan Silva, Rotoworld.com)

"Perhaps the most explosive hitter in this year's crop of safeties, Pryor is a big, physical hammer in the run game, bringing the ability to intimidate and erase. Factor in his instincts and range and Pryor has the ability to start as a rookie." (Nolan Nawrocki, NFL.com)

"Good vision and spatial awareness to slip amongst the mass of humanity near the line of scrimmage to locate the ball. Shows no desire for self-preservation when taking on blockers, dropping to take them out at the knees and often is able to take out the ballcarrier." (Rob Rang, CBSSports.com)

"Pryor was a play-maker for Louisville in 2013 as a hard-hitting safety who had a habit of creating turnovers. Pryor is fast and has good size to defend tight ends and big receivers. The force of his hits caused a lot of fumbles over his career." (WalterFootball.com)
