Rookie Profile: Michael Pratt, Quarterback, Green Bay Packers

Welcome to the Rookie Profile: Michael Pratt, a Quarterback from Tulane. He is from Boca Raton, Florida, and was a 3-star recruit out of Deerfield Beach High School.

In 2020, as a freshman, he appeared in 10 games for Tulane. That freshman season was nothing special as he learned the ropes. He recorded 1,806 passing yards, 20 touchdowns, and 8 interceptions with a completion percentage of 55.1%. Not a great start, but one that showed he had promise.

His 2021 season as a sophomore saw him appear in 12 games where his stats saw a slight uptick. He passed for 2,390 yards with 21 touchdowns and 8 interceptions and his completion percentage rose slightly to 57.8%. Again, not a terrible season, but not one to write home about either.

As a junior in 2022, he appeared in 13 games and produced what would be the best year of his collegiate career. He threw for 3,009 yards and 27 touchdowns, both career highs, while only throwing 3 interceptions, a career low. His completion percentage also saw a noticeable jump to 63.6%. This was an encouraging step forward for Pratt and he showed the ability to produce while maximizing his accuracy and minimizing turnovers.

His final collegiate season was as a senior in 2023. He appeared in 11 games and saw mixed results. While his passing yards and touchdowns took a step back and reverted to similar totals to his sophomore season, he managed to maintain a low interception rate and high completion rate. The key to this season was that while he didn’t produce as well as in his junior season, he prioritized ball security.

Draft Capital & Landing Spot

Draft Capital- Round 7 Pick 25

  • Aside from Brock Purdy and the long list of undrafted free-agent quarterbacks, it’s tough to say his draft capital could have gotten much worse. This level of draft capital would indicate the Packers see him as nothing more than an emergency quarterback in the event of a Jordan Love injury.
  • There’s not much more to say about his draft capital or total lack of it. RIP Michael Pratt Sleeper SZN.

Landing Spot- Green Bay Packers

  • The Packers would have been a great landing spot a year ago. Aaron Rodgers had departed for The Big Apple and the only thing left was the unproven Jordan Love. Fast forward a year and Love had suddenly proven himself and Pratt is now nothing more than a developmental prospect on this roster and a “break glass in case of emergency” option.

Fantasy Impact

The fantasy impact here is negligible because his fantasy value to begin with was negligible. Pratt can be safely left on waiver wires after rookie drafts and is nothing more than a handcuff in deep superflex leagues for managers who roster Jordan Love and have some empty bench space.

I saw lots of potential in Pratt and was severely disappointed in this draft outcome, but at this point, the only scenario for his fantasy value to increase is for him to be cut in training camp and catch on with another team. Either way, it’s going to be a long road to fantasy relevance for fantasy.
