Lions scout Terrelle Pryor's Pro Day
By Kevin Seifert
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Detroit Lions were the only NFC North team to send a representative to Saturday's pro day workout of former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor.
I wouldn't necessarily read much into who did (or didn't) attend) the workout, which is in advance of next week's supplemental draft. Some teams are legitimately interested in Pryor. Others are curious. Some want to strengthen their scouting reports on him, and a few probably didn't want to tip off their intentions by attending.
Pryor apparently has accepted a five-game suspension to start the season, and that absence along with his late arrival in training camp casts doubt on his ability to provide a substantive contribution to any team in 2011.
Schefter reported that Pryor ran the 40-yard dash in 4.41 seconds. That's an unofficial time, but anything in that neighborhood is impressive for a quarterback who measured 6-foot-5 and 232 pounds Saturday.
