I'd love to see him up here but would also love to see him with the Saints. A couple years behind Carr would really get Pratt ready for a long run as the Saint's main man.
For some reason, Saints seem to avoid drafting local players. LSU people have complained about it for a long time. Passing on Spears last year suggests that Tulane may also be on that list.
Read today's Advocate Pratt talks about having 4 different OC and not a true Quarterback Coach, does not seem good for Nagle, Pratt's best season was working under Coach Svoboda, Yea we heard about Nagle calling the plays, but Coach Fritz said Svoboda was good during the week preparing players for the games. Pratt has been in Florida getting good individual coaching analyzing his poor throws and found a glitch in his throwing motion not using his hips just his upper body. Imagine how good he could have been with a Quarterback Coach or Svoboda more than a single season.

Imagine injury free. He probably developed bad habits compensating for his leg injury.

Nice watching live action on ESPN also Jaquan Jackson. Pratt also had a mis snap under center, He is so wanting to take in everything coach had to tell him to back up while the other Quarterback took a snap, lol Should be on tomorrow also.

[b]Michael Pratt, QB, Tulane
Unlike last year, where the Senior Bowl quarterbacks were Jaren Hall, Jake Haener, Clayton Tune, Max Duggan and Tyson Bagent, this year's group consists of at least four passers who have a chance to be Top-100 selections, and maybe a couple even find their way into the first round. Pratt missed two games early in the season because of a knee injury, but still finished with 22 touchdowns against just five interceptions, and had a career-best 65.4 completion percentage in 11 starts. He reconfirmed in Mobile what showed up on tape: he is a better athlete than maybe he's given credit for, he has a big arm (during Tuesday's practice, Joe Milton III had the fastest fastball at 76 mph; on Wednesday, Pratt was also clocked at 76 mph), he can layer the ball downfield when he needs to, and he was consistently accurate to all three levels. 2024 Senior Bowl: Tulane QB Michael Pratt among five standouts from practice week. [/b]

Jha'Quan Jackson, WR, Tulane
It was a good week for the Green Wave; Jackson came into the week as an established return man, but he only had 26 catches last season. At 5-foot-9, 190 lbs, it's no surprise that Jackson was primarily used out of the slot. But he showed in Mobile what you got glimpses of in the fall: quickness off the line of scrimmage, the speed to stack defensive backs on vertical routes, the quickness to win on short and intermediate routes, and good hands.

Jha’Quan Jackson, WR, Tulane
Jha’Quan Jackson isn’t going to be an overly imposing catch-point threat at 5’9″, 190 pounds, so he needs to prove he can separate consistently. He has the requisite athleticism, but on Tuesday, wasted movement and a lack of spatial awareness plagued him in 1-on-1s. He’ll need to sharpen his steps and seek more efficiency in the coming days.

I watched the second practice for a bit, Jackson was pretty good. It just shows how subjective this stuff can be based on the eye of the beholder/analyst. That’s how you get guys like Isaiah Pacheco being drafted in the 7th round.

Maybe the Saints will learn from their Spears mistake.

I hope the Saints don't draft him. They suck as an organization right now and I don't trust them developing him. Dennis Allen seems like too old school and stuff.

Pratt really got the short end of the stick under the previous coach staff.

Good, because CBS Sports had Pratt among their five standouts from Senior Bowl practice week. Glad we agree.

I've also seen nothing from CBS Sports with a down rating on JJ, only GBs msn clickbait stuff.

ESPN writer predicts where the seven Senior Bowl QBs will be drafted

Michael Pratt, Tulane – Bottom of Round 5, top of Round 6
The Tulane quarterback has a ton of experience, having started 45 games at the college level. That’s one of his biggest assets, as teams likely expect he’ll be able to get up to speed quickly in a new system thanks to his experience.

Legwold listed a couple pluses and minuses from Pratt’s stint in Mobile this week. Scouts like his willingness to hang in the pocket and make late throws, while they’re reportedly a little concerned about an elongated delivery and impatience in the red zone. In any case, Pratt is viewed as a fifth- to sixth-round prospect.

I don't expect Pratt to be a regular NFL starter but would love to see the Saints get him if he drops to the 4th or 5th round.

Pratt may become the next RG4..... nice pay checks, no body abuse, get to t0 see country..... not a bad gig...but who knows, he may become the next Brock Purdy

What's funny is I've read reviews on Pratt's week ranging from "he's played himself into consideration at the back end of the first round" to the one recently posted here, predicting he'll be a 5th or 6th round draft pick. One of the Denver-based media groups talked him up early in the week, then later said the week hurt his stock! The game itself wasn't good for Michael but he did show some zip on a couple of passes.

It just goes to show, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.

Good luck Michael and thanks for everything you've done for Tulane.

He sure gave us something to remember. Wish him the best. As for the Saints, having a glass statue with a crappy Oline I don’t see any improvement and wouldn’t want to see Michael be a sacrificial body with them.

Food for thought sometimes a player goes through a career playing his way, then they get over coached and are not as good. Could Pratt getting a qb coach trying to change him made him worst??? Think about it he had time to heal from his injuries but was not himself in the senior bowl, plus he was not taking the snaps from Sincere his buddy.

To be fair, Michael only ran about 10 plays. Sam Hartman, on the other hand, had almost three quarters.

Exactly. After watching Hartman flail for so long, I was starting to wonder if ND was underwriting the Senior Bowl.

He had an off game but hopefully his solid practice week will overshadow that.
