When Terrelle Pryor posted a 4.36 40-yard dash time at his supplemental draft workout over the weekend, it was a fashionable joke to say he might as well have been running toward Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum. Known for drafting speedy players, the Raiders lived up to their reputation by taking the former Ohio State quarterback with a third-round pick. With an already crowded quarterback depth chart, will the Raiders turn Pryor into a developmental project at another position? What do you make of the sliver and black's obsession with the fleet of foot?
Worth the investment?
The Oakland Raiders are now without a second-, third- or fourth-round pick in next year's draft. Was Pryor, who many view as a developmental project, worth the risk?
The Raiders don't have the league's best quarterback situation, but it certainly isn't the worst (cough, Dolphins?). Is current starter Jason Campbell in danger of losing his job?
If it's Pryor's speed that has the Raiders so enamored, would it be in their best interest to move him to wide receiver, where a 40-yard dash could actually be employed on the field?
A need for speed?
The Raiders have drafted the three players with the fastest 40-yard dash times at the past three NFL combines, including Darrius Heyward-Bey (4.3 seconds) in 2009.
