Scouting Report on Kyle Prater

How we scouted: Film footage, In-person visits, Game setting, Campby Barry Every - 08/13/2009
  • SpeedDivision I Player
  • SizeAs Good As It Gets
  • StrengthBlue Chip
  • AgilityBlue Chip
  • Ball SkillsBlue Chip
On the Hoof: Big, physical receiver that looks like a hybrid tight end/receiver. He will remind people of a Rueben Randle or Julio Jones type receiver.
Needs Improvement: Has deceptive speed, but he could improve, reaching that top-end speed quicker. This should help him create quicker separation with the defender.
Most Impressive: He is the type of wideout that does not have to be open to make a catch and will be a threat to score from any point on the field. He has possibly the best hands and body control of any receiver in the country.
Conclusion: Should have the same impact at the next level as Julio Jones, A.J. Green, Michael Floyd or DeAndre Brown did as a true freshman.

Barry Every is a Football Recruiting Analyst for Rivals.com. He has worked in the recruiting offices for Mark Richt at the University of Georgia, Bobby Bowden at Florida State University and Mack Brown at the University of North Carolina
