Terrelle Pryor to the Raiders Means Oakland Has No 2nd, 3rd or 4th Round Picks in 2012

Terrelle Pryor – one of the most hyped athletes in recent high school football history – didn’t win a title at Ohio State and was part of the downfall of legendary coach Jim Tressel and the program … and now he’s been selected in the 3rd round of the NFL’s Supplemental draft by the Oakland Raiders.

The first words out of everyone’s mouth: Perfect fit. The Raiders and Pryor are brash, make woefully poor decisions, and continually under-deliver. Pryor will either be the 4th string QB behind Jason Campbell, Trent Edwards and Kyle Boller – what a motley crew that is – or he’ll get some run at H-back, tight end or receiver. Well, that’s after he serves that bogus five-game suspension.

I’m going to guess Pryor will see time at QB this season. Campbell, whom I’ve always liked, already has a concussion. Edwards has had a few in his career. And Kyle Boller – he of the hot wife – is just terrible. Why not give Pryor some run at QB?

As for the rebuilding Raiders – don’t tell me they’re “close”; this team has more holes than Casey Anthony’s defense – their 2012 draft should be comical. They have a 1st round pick … and then won’t pick again until the 5th round. [NYT]
