Possible NFL landing spots for Terrelle Pryor

If you're of the opinion that Ray Lewis and Ed Reed would be good locker room influences on any player with off-field issues, then you may have no problem with John Clayton's suggestion that the Ravens might be one of five teams willing to take a flyer on Terrelle Pryor. If you don't buy the initial premise (and some folks are understandably skeptical), then the whole argument falls apart.

Writing for ESPN, Clayton admits that "This might be a bit of a reach, but as a lower-round selection Pryor could interest the Ravens as a receiver. Having him learn under Anquan Boldin would be the key. Boldin was a quarterback in college and uses the knowledge gained there to put himself in position to help his quarterback."

We agree. It's a reach. Not because the Ravens aren't willing to gamble with talented but troubled players (they are), but because if we're to take agent Drew Rosenhaus at his word (we'll wait while you quit laughing), he thinks Pryor is not only an NFL quarterback but a "first-round pick."

Perhaps that stance will soften as teams explain to Rosenhaus that his client probably isn't worth more than a fourth-rounder. Although, as Mike Mayock pointed out Wednesday night, "Nobody is better than Rosenhaus in driving perceived value. … Sometimes perceived value is almost as good as real value if he can get enough people talking about [Pryor] as a first-round pick."

Other possible destinations, according to Clayton: Oakland, Miami, Pittsburgh and Washington.
Terrelle Pryor's NFL future

The Raiders makes sense because, well, it's the Raiders. Once Al Davis sees Pryor's 40 time, he very well could be a first-rounder. Still, that doesn't mean it's a good idea.

Clayton says the Dolphins "want to add someone to compete against Chad Henne," and we agree. It's just not going to be Pryor. Remember: Miami wasted a second-rounder on Pat White two years ago. Pat White is now out of the NFL.

As for Pittsburgh, Clayton notes that, "Many scouts believe Pryor potentially has Dennis Dixon-like ability as quarterback." Dennis Dixon also never had off-field issues (just the opposite, in fact). He's also been an adequate NFL backup and nothing more. Probably not worth the potential headaches that will accompany Pryor, even if Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau is impartial to Ohio State players.

Finally, there are the Redskins. Like the Raiders -- and given their blindfold-and-a-dartboard personnel philosophy -- it makes too much sense not to happen. To Clayton's credit, he calls Pryor-to-Washington a long shot, even given the fact that Mike Shanahan doesn't have an starting-caliber QB currently on the roster.

     I hope the Ravens aren't serious about this.  I would rather the Ravens had kept Troy Smith instead of getting Pryor.  Rosenhaus is dreaming when he says Pryor is a first-round pick but them what do you expect an agent to say about one of his clients?  Pryor has already shown he has character issues and on top of that I don't think he will succeed at the NFL level.

Let's just hope this guy doesn't go Lawrence Phillips or Maurice Clarrett on us once he gets drafted. He does seem to have that kind of mentality...

 Um... Boldin played very little at QB in college.. he was a WR at FSU and got drafted because of that. Its been over 10 years since he's played QB... bad research.

I think Pryor will get drafted by someone. I also think that the someone who draft him will not be drafting a frontline or starting QB, not even a back up, but a project.

He will not be a first round draft choice by any team in the NFL, perhaps low 3rd or 4th round as he is not ready for the pros as of yet.

Who would  need such a QB or take a chance on a QB that has questionable work ethnics and values. He also have question at having a NFL arm and abilities.

Then there is his manager. Most pro owners or general managers would not want the headache of putting up with Drew. They would just rather pass on his players, especially rookie talent, as he normally price them extremely high. When the team would not want to meet his demand, the advises his clients to sit out the season.

In my estimation Pryor will be drafted and either sitting on the sidelines learning his craft or sitting at home because no one will match is agents escalated price for a questionable player such as Pryor.
