3rd Round Pick: Germaine Pratt, LB, NC State

Recommended Posts

Immediate starter.  Doesn’t matter who it is, first LB we pick is an immediate starter.

exactly

I guess I should be happy we took a linebacker, but when I went to read his draft profile, I kinda stopped after the first sentence

"Pratt only started one game in three years with the Wolfpack"

My dead gramma started 1 fewer game than this guy

awesome

just freakin awesome

I like this pick. Dude is big, quick, and makes plays. He led NC State in tackles every game last year. Take a look at his height and wing span too. 

He'll start immediately.

Not as bad a pick as the 2nd rounder?

Im not even sure I can say that with certainty, but its about the most praise I can muster here

its a low bar

Coverage guy.  Played db in high school and first two years at nc state.  This guy is an answer to the repeated passing attacks on linebackers by tight ends and slot guys.

I like what I see. Dude is big, tall, and fast. 4.5 40. Former DB. Makes plays.

Actually from what I've read he is a very good player, and will hardly miss a tackle. That is something this defense needs. Nice pick up on paper.

He looks like a good pick. He’ll get a chance to play with Malik Jefferson and Preston Brown this season

Why do you keep saying he didn’t start TJ? He was one of the three LBers I thought should be targeted exactly where he was in round 3. He can run, cover and tackle. He’s exactly what they need.

I like it.   Many times I’ve said on here you may need former Safeties converted to LBs to improve coverage underneath. 

Hope it works for the Bengals with this guy.

The more I read the more I like about this pick.  High motor, and has quick in bursts with above average long speed.  Starter if they are correct.

He favorably compares to Zach Cunningham, vandy guy I liked who was Texans second round pick. We got what they always wanted from Lamur. He’ll push to start.

I really don't know much about this kid, but if seriously compares to Zach Cuningham, we will be better at LB this year.
I guess the two LB picks say all you need to know about our current roster of LB's.
