According to Albert Breer of NFL Network, the Oakland Raiders have used their 2012 3rd round pick to take Ohio State QB Terrelle Pryor in today’s Supplemental Draft. For a team that lost two of its best playmakers in Nnamdi Asomugha (to the Eagles) and Zach Miller (to the Seahawks), this looks like a great value pick.
Ironically, former Raider head coach Jon Gruden has a lot of faith in Pryor’s abilities as a quarterback. While this has been the off-season that Al Davis has been in the background for, you have to wonder if he won’t commission Hue Jackson to get that 4.38 speed on the field at some point during this season, maybe as a wide receiver.
The other quarterbacks on the roster are Jason Campbell, Trent Edwards, Kyle Boller, and San Jose State rookie Jordan La Secla. Hue Jackson will be earning his money, needless to say.
