Gruden, Pryor debate bubble screens

Take a look at this preview clip from Gruden’s QB Camp featuring Terrelle Pryor, which will air in its entirety Thursday at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN.

It’s pretty interesting stuff as Jon Gruden and the former Ohio State quarterback go over some film work. As you’ll see in the clip, Gruden’s not a big fan of bubble screens. In fact, he pretty much rips the whole concept.

That alone would be enough to make a lot of quarterbacks coming out of college just nod their head and agree with Gruden. Pryor doesn’t do that. In fact, he puts up a little argument on the virtues of bubble screens and takes to the chalkboard to show Gruden a bigger play that can develop in that situation.

Pryor’s planning to enter the NFL supplemental draft. As I’ve said before, I think it’s a long shot that he lands with an NFC South team. Three division teams are set with quality starters and Carolina has a lot invested in Cam Newton and Jimmy Clausen. Personnel people around the league seem to be split on if Pryor’s future is as an NFL quarterback or if he needs to move to wide receiver or tight end.
