Embattled Ohio State QB Terrelle Pryor announced yesterday that he will in fact enter the NFL Supplemental Draft – assuming the NFL decides to hold one.
Pryor is an interesting case. He’s certainly a world-class athlete, and he won big for the Buckeyes. But is he an NFL-level QB? ESPN’s Mel Kiper certainly doesn’t think so, claiming that Pryor has significant mechanical and accuracy problems. Kiper seems to think Pryor would be best suited switching to tight end or wide receiver.
We’ve asked this before, but I wanted to re-post this poll in case you missed it. Should the Bills take a shot on Terrelle Pryor? And if so, how high of a draft pick should the Bills be willing to sacrifice? (To select a player in the Supplemental Draft, a team must give up a pick in the next “regular” draft. The team willing to give up the best pick gets the player.)
Personally, I think he’s worth a shot for a mid-to-late round pick. The Bills are still in rebuilding mode. Carrying a project player, especially one with the kind of physical talent Pryor has, is worth the risk.
