2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Troy Pride Jr., CB, Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Positives
An athletic cornerback with bigtime potential. Physical, engages receivers at the line of scrimmage and mixes it up throughout the route. Effective when he sees the action, tracks the pass in the air and displays a nice move to the throw. Works hard to get off blocks and make plays up the field against screen passes and run plays. Ran incredibly well at the combine.

Negatives
Seemed to struggle as a senior and did not meet expectations. Late to transition with opponents off the line. Got caught out of position too often last season.

Analysis
Pride was graded as a potential top-45 pick entering the season, but he struggled through a disappointing senior campaign. He possesses the size and athleticism to be a productive nickel back and special-teams player at the next level, but Pride must get his game back to where it was in 2018.
