Raiders Pick Terrelle Pryor In NFL Supplemental Draft
The Oakland Raiders selected former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor in the third round of the NFL Supplemental Draft. We still need to find out two things: What position will Terrelle Pryor play, and what were the Raiders smoking?
The Raiders used the 18th pick in the third round of the NFL Supplemental Draft to select Terrelle Pryor. By drafting Pryor, Oakland will not have a third-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. Pryor will most likely get a contract in the neighborhood of a four-year, $2.36 million deal. He will likely get a signing bonus just under $600,000.
Terrelle Pryor is regarded by most as a marginal talent at the quarterback position. However, Pryor ran the 40-yard dash in 4.36 seconds on his Pro Day. He has the athleticism to possibly be an asset at another position. Pryor is talented enough from an athletic standpoint for a team to take a flyer on him. Unfortunately for the Raiders, a third round pick is not exactly a flyer.
