It was no big surprise when Bengals WR Chad Ochocinco went out of his way the other day to praise former Ohio State QB Terrelle Pryor after the two worked out together in South Florida.
After all, Ochocinco and Pryor share the same agent -- the all-mighty Drew Rosenhaus -- and Ochocinco is known for making exaggerated claims, especially when he’s updating his Twitter feed.
So when asked on ESPN 1000 (via Pro Football Talk) in Chicago today about his scouting report on Pryor – who, um, has not been as well received by those who break down film for a living --Ochocinco doubled down on his original claims.

Ochocinco also pooh-poohed a question about whether the Rosenhaus connection played a part in his overexcitement. Naturally, Ochocinco denied that. Either way, it doesn’t matter. Ochocinco isn’t going to be drafting anybody anyway, and neither are any of the analysts who have studied tape on Pryor.
But if I was forced to choose, I’d go with the analysts before I believed anything Ochocinco said.
