Myron Pryor   DT   Kentucky         

 

STRENGTHS

Every time I see this kid play, he is making a play on the field and leading his team.  He is a solid kid with excellent in-the-box quickness.  He is strong and in a 1-gap attack defense he should do very well.  Myron shows good feet and is very smart on the field.  He understands situational football and knows how to set his man up during a game to make an impact play late in the game.  I believe Myron might be able to play DE in a 3-4 defense.  I know he can be an excellent rotation pass rush specialist in a 4-3 defense.  Myron is the type of player that just has the knack to be in the right place at the right time.    

 

NEEDS TO IMPROVE

Myron is not a 2-gap DT who is going to meet and greet a big guard, shed him and make a tackle.  That's not his game, so if your team has that style defense, I would not suggest drafting Myron because he will not be able to impact in that type of system.    

  

TALENT BOARD ROUND 4

Myron is a systems DT.  Put him in the wrong system and Myron will not impact.  Put him in the right system and you have a player who will become a fan favorite and a core player for your team.  It's that simple!  Myron needs to be used as a pass rush rotation D-Lineman who can shoot the gaps and cause disruption in the blocking assignments of an offensive line.  He will make plays in the back field because of his quickness off the snap.  He is solid against the run, but for a 16 game schedule, game after game I think that is asking too much of him.  Draft him, rotate him and use him as your pass rush DT and you shall be rewarded.
