Another UFL coach scoffs at Terrelle Pryor

There are quite a few opinions about where former Ohio State QB Terrelle Pryor will land in the first stop of his professional career.*

*I suppose you could make the argument that Pryor just left the first stop of his pro career.

Drew Rosenhaus – who just happens to be Pryor’s agent – seems to think Pryor could be a first-round pick in the NFL supplemental draft. Others like Greg Cosell, the respected analyst at NFL Films, thinks Pryor shouldn’t get his hopes up quite so much.

And then you have former NFL head coach Marty Schottenheimer – now the head coach with the UFL’s Virginia Destroyers – who wouldn’t want Pryor at all.

Which leads us to Jerry Glanville, coach of the UFL’s Hartford Colonials, who declared to the Hartford Courant (via Pro Football Talk) that he would have some reservations about taking a player like Pryor.

“If a player’s ability helps the product on the field, I’m all for it,” Glanville said. “But you’re taking a guy – anybody and I’m not saying any guy in particular – and his reputation actually hinders the product on the field, then I don’t care about his reputation or his name. Because to me, this league is all about the product. That’s what we’re selling.

“Our league is an unselfish league. You can’t be a selfish person to play in the UFL. In the NFL, there are selfish people. From what he did and from what happened to him in college . . . I don’t know him and you never know until you meet a guy, he might be the greatest kid you’ve ever met. But if he’s selfish, there’s no room for him in this league.”

OK, so it’s established. While Pryor couldn’t even get a sniff in the UFL, he’s going to be a first-round pick in the NFL supplemental.

Boy, it sounds like Rosenhaus has some major selling to do.

Another UFL coach scoffs at Terrelle Pryor

Those who coach or play in the UFL are not good enough to play in the NFL. While I condemn Mr. Pryor's antics at OSU there is no denying that he is a great athlete. I actually became an OSU fan when he signed with them. But after what Jim Tressel did to ruin his career I don't know. Maybe he can succeed in the NFL..maybe not. Just give him a chance. The Panthers should give him a chance even though they drafted Cam Newton. Newton only had one good season and to this day does not know the Auburn playbook. I bet Pryor knows a few plays that he ran as QB.


You do realize Glanville and Schottenheimer both were coaches in the NFL, right lumpoco???

Rosenhaus is blowing smoke up Pryor's ass if he actually thinks TP is going to be a 1st round pick in the Supplemental Draft.  There is a reason he didn't leave OSU -- He wasn't going to get drafted in the first few rounds.

He is a tremendous athlete, but lacks the intelligence, mentality, arm strength and accuracy to be a NFL QB.  His biggest strength is his legs and athleticism.  If he wants to play on sunday in the NFL -- he is going to have to move to WR or TE.  I think he could be great at either one.

Do not try to compare Pryor to Newton -- outside of the legs and athleticism -- the comparison stops.  Pryor struggled throwing the ball against the tough defense in the Big Ten.  He completed 51% of his passes with as many Int's as TD's -- this was last year.  Newton put up big numbers in, by far, the best conference in college football.  He led his community college team to a National Championship two years ago and then in one year in the NCAA, led Auburn to the National Championship.  He has a rocket arm and showed he could make all the passes needed for the next level.

If Pryor insists on playing QB in the NFL -- he will hold a clip board for many years and get mop up duty when the game is already over.  If he wants to play on a consistant basis -- he will change positions.

Thats fantastic! But what is this doing in the NFL section? Does CBS cover the UFL? Is Pryor attempting to join the UFL or enter it's draft? Oh, he isn't. So this article is totally useless, like all your garbage. Maybe you could put an article covering bowling or table tennis in here tomorrow since it will have as much relevance.

Yeah I believe he reportedly ran like a sub 4.4 40 a year or two ago at tOSU, so I would say he problem has some future at WR, if not QB.  There are so many receivers out there that are former quarterbacks that are at least contributing to an NFL roster.  Do not tell me that he can't run routes or catch the ball or beat the press, because no one on here knows if he can do any of that just like no one knew if Brad Smith or any of the other former QBs could do it.

I know jack crap about drafting players, but I cannot think of anyone who would take a chance on TP.  He walked out on his team, blamed everyone else for his indiscretions, failed to be 100% truthful regarding his indiscretions and left a massive skid mark following his path.  Maybe the Bengals take him in the seventh round of the supplemental draft.  At least JaMarcus Russell won a title in the NCAA.  TP has just destroyed a proud college program, exposed and burned his coach; therefore, he could do a pretty job of tearing up a locker room.  I think TP would be a better fit in the NBA.  I am sure coaches love these walking grenades.
