Raiders Plunder Pryor: Terrelle Taken in 3rd Round

According to ESPN the Oakland Raiders – to the surprise of none – have taken former Ohio State QB Terrelle Pryor in the NFL’s Supplemental Draft. Once Pryor popped an eye opening 4.3 40-yard dash you knew it was academic Al Davis would select the tantalizing prospect.

Also of little surprise would be how high a value Oakland placed on Pryor. Proving their draft day reaches aren’t limited to the regular draft, some had slated Pryor as a late round pick. Then again it took the Pats 6 rounds of drafting to land Tom Brady so draft value is as meaningless a term as political transparency.

Pryor will have to serve his NCAA mandated and NFL sanctioned 5-game suspension before even having a chance at being able to play in his first season. The next question relates to just where he’ll play in the NFL. As a QB Pryor is a major undertaking but as a receiver he could be a valued contributor in some capacity.
