Breaking News: Oakland Raiders Pick Terrelle Pryor in 3rd Round of Supplemental Draft
With the 18th pick of the 3rd round in the 2011 NFL Supplemental Draft, the Oakland Raiders select Terrelle Pryor, quarterback, Ohio State.
Doesn’t exactly have the same muster as the real draft, does it?
We should have all seen this coming. Al Davis got rid of a head case mobile quarterback with a big arm last year only to bring in another this year, and it costs him a 2012 3rd rounder to boot.
To be fair, Pryor is 10 times the athlete that JaMarcus Russell was, and could provide the Raiders with an option at wide receiver or tight end.
At his pro day Pryor said he wants to play quarterback, but is willing to do whatever a team asks of him. Given the situation in Oakland, it seems like he could learn a lot from Jason Campbell and become a starter sometime soon.
Pryor led the Buckeyes to at least a share of three straight Big 10 titles, so his leadership and play making ability is obviously what the Raiders are counting on.
Al Davis isn’t afraid to make the outside the box moves, so again no one should be surprised that Pryor will don the silver and black this season.
