C. Ochocinco has been singing the praises of T. Pryor (Getty).Posted by Josh Katzowitz

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.

Terrelle Pryor's NFL future
Said Ochocinco: “I understand the whole hoopla everybody saying all this, you know, OK, he messed up. I had the first chance actually yesterday was my second day throwing with Pryor. Dude’s arm strength [and] timing was unbelievable. I don’t care what ESPN said, I don’t care what they report, I saw with my own eyes. I’ve seen every NFL quarterback play. Dude, it was unbelievable. With the right coaching, he can become a great NFL quarterback because he has all the tools. He has all the tools that these scouts look for in a quarterback.”

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.

As it's genuinely a toss up as thow which one is the bigger liar: Drew Rosenhaus or Chad Ochocinco... who cares what either of them every say about anything? That group is little... both in size and intellectual capacity.

"one of the most overrated players in NFL history"? Come on man, you might not like the guy (I can't stand his a antics personally) but he's been in the league for 10 years and hes been a top 5 WR for about 7 or so of those seasons. He averages over 1000yards a year over his career, which puts him in pretty elite company. Like I said, you might not like the guy personally, and you have every reason to, but to make comments like that you just sound unknowledgeable and ignorant... Think before you post.

The only good thing about this is hearing that Ocho is working on his game! Although; he can still play, he is no longer elite at his position! As far as Pryor, their are alot of guys who have all the tools to be great football players and they just don't have the discipline to become great. Pryor hasn't shown that discipline to be great! The NFL is all about work ethic, the guys who study and outwork the other guy is going to be successful! I just don't see Pryor being as committed to the game as a Manning, Brady and the other elite qb's, who put the time in, in order to be great. His athletic talent will land him a roster spot but that's about it!
