Raiders take Terrelle Pryor
By Bill Williamson
Terrelle Pryor is an Oakland Raider.
They took him in the third round of the NFL supplemental draft. He has long been connected to the Raiders. He is supremely athletic. Oakland could develop him as a quarterback or as a receiver. He will be suspended for the first five weeks of the season.
He was considered as a late-round pick. Thus, Pryor is Oakland’s 2012 third-round pick. Oakland doesn’t have a second, third or fourth-round pick next year. But they will likely end up getting a couple of good comp picks for Nnamdi Asomugha, Zach Miller and Robert Gallery.
I will be back with more on this development.
