NFC South: Gruden QB Camp

Remember those “Gruden QB Camp’’ shows and video clips that were so popular as we got ready for this year’s draft? Well, ESPN analyst and former NFL coach Jon Gruden is at it again.

The man who sat down and went through very interesting interviews with Carolina’s Cam Newton and several other quarterbacks has an upcoming special on Terrelle Pryor, the quarterback who left Ohio State amidst an NCAA scandal. Pryor plans to enter the NFL and hopes to be taken in the supplemental draft.

The one-hour show will air June 28 at 9 p.m. on ESPN and will re-air at 10 p.m. that day on ESPN 2.

Gruden and Pryor worked out Monday at the University of South Florida. Gruden and Pryor also went through film together and the former coach interviewed some Pryor. You can see a preview of that interview below.

In the preview, Gruden asks Pryor for his thoughts on the Ohio State situation. Pryor said he made mistakes and is “disgusted’’ by what happened. Gruden also asks Pryor why he’s not looking to enhance his NFL chances by playing another season of college football. Pryor says it’s time to move on.

As I noted in this item last week, NFL personnel people seem somewhat divided on if Pryor should stay at quarterback or move to receiver or tight end. I also ran down possible fits of Pryor in the NFC South and I think they’re all long shots.

We showed you this clip of Jon Gruden’s interview with Auburn quarterback Cam Newton last week.

But fans of the Carolina Panthers might want to pay close attention to ESPNU the next few nights. The Panthers hold the No. 1 pick in the upcoming draft and Missouri’s Blaine Gabbert and Arkansas’ Ryan Mallett are the other quarterbacks they’ve been looking at besides Newton.

Mallett will be featured on Wednesday’s edition of Gruden QB Camp, which will air at 7 p.m. ET (it also will re-air at midnight). Newton will be featured in that same time slot Monday and Gabbert will be featured April 20.
