2011 NFL Supplemental Draft: Terrelle Pryor To The Raiders In Round Three

Well, well. Former Ohio State QB Terrelle Pryor, by far the best player in the 2011 NFL Supplemental Draft, has been picked in the third round by, you guessed it, the Oakland Raiders. That means the Raiders will give up a 2012 third round pick for Pryor. And he's still suspended for the first five games of the 2011 season.

Matt Conner over at SBN KC thought Pryor to the Raiders might happen. From this morning:

Perhaps the favorite among the AFC West teams interested - and even the entire NFL - is the Raiders franchise. Al Davis is well known for loving the skill positions and those who possess the best on-paper abilities, whether he's selecting a receiver like Darrius Heyward-Bey or a running back like Darren McFadden or an offensive tackle like Jared Veldheer.

Wes Bunting comments on just that for the National Football Post when he writes, "It's no secret that owner Al Davis loves athletes that can run and Pryor certainly fits that bill. Add in the fact that the Raiders haven't had a legit signal caller leading their offense since Rich Gannon and that they are in desperate need of a franchise QB. Pryor is going to be a work in progress, but when you look at his athletic skill set/upside and figure he is only going to warrant a later round pick, he seems like the kind of guy the Raiders front office would certainly be willing to gamble on."
