Pryor’s guardian believes supplemental draft unlikely

Jim Tressel, Terrelle Pryor AP

The legal guardian for Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor said Friday that he believes Pryor will stay at the school despite his suspension and Jim Tressel’s recent departure.

There has been speculation in recent days that Pryor could leave the school and try to enter the NFL’s supplemental draft.

“I think he will stay in school,” said Willie Burns, who is also Pryor’s godfather. “He likes football. Only time will tell. He could change his mind in a minute.  But he if he does leave, somebody done pressured his butt – bad.”

We’ve heard speculation that Pryor could potentially be a mid-round draft pick by teams that would try to convert him to wide receiver.  If Burns is correct, the discussion about Pryor’s viability at the next level will have to wait until next year’s draft silly season.

    He’s not a QB in the NFL. He’s a diva who plays by his own set of rules and has no work ethic.

    He doesn’t deserve to play.

    I think Pryor should move on, the people who support Ohio State will be real hard on this guy and it would be in his best interest to move on.

    Why would he give up all those free cars and tats to be a receiver project in the NFL?

    Oh Boy…I feel another “let’s hate on this QB instead of putting the blame where it rightfully belong” moment coming on…

    At least ESPN won’t be as hard on him as they were/are with Cam Newton. Especially since they all but ignored what he, Tressell, and the other players were doing at Ohio State as they were to busy chasing every bogus Auburn paid for Cam Newton flicker.

    And is it just me that noticed the level of IRONY in Pryor also wear the #2..I guess the sports media might have been barking up the wrong school tree last year…LMAO

    That big recruiting battle for him seems even stupider now.

    Kill all this move to receiver talk, he’s a quarterback who deserves to succeed or fail at qb. This isn’t the 60’s, he led Ohio State to 2 BCS wins as a quarterback. All this wideout talk is coming from McShay and now more then ever I’m convinced he doesn’t know what he’s talking about….or Kiper either. Stay there work on your game and go in next years draft as a quarterback. Bottomline.

    would be an excellent wildcat prospect in the NFL for a team like detroit… Just Sayin’

    Options? What options?

    The world was Pryor’s oyster, but he tried to steal the pearl. Blown career.

    Why does a senior in college need a legal guardian?

  10. cfrs15 says: Jun 3, 2011 6:44 PM

    What’s the difference between Pryor and Cam Newton? Not much.

  11. kingjoe1 says: Jun 3, 2011 6:45 PM

    Maybe the Dolphins will draft him. Look how well Pat White turned out.

  12. coolzog says: Jun 3, 2011 6:53 PM

    I didn’t realize you could still have a “legal guardian” once you’re past 18 years old?

  13. willycents says: Jun 3, 2011 6:53 PM

    My advice to Pryor: Stay in college, get your degree in something worthwhile. Then, if the NFL does not give you 50% of their revenue, or any of it, you have something to fall back on to support you and your family.

  14. wtfchiefs says: Jun 3, 2011 7:21 PM

    Why would anyone draft this guy at all, much less WR. Exactly what has he done to show he is mid round wideout material? Dude is overrated as all hell.

  15. cincinnasti says: Jun 3, 2011 7:31 PM

    I had no idea the rest of the nation admired or despised the Ohio State Football program as much as I’ve realized lately..

    =====================

    Stay there and work on his game? Are you completely clueless?

    He is already suspended for the first 5 games, and is currently under a new investigation not related to the first.

    There is no way he will eligible to play this year. If he bypasses the supplemental draft, the NCAA will rule him ineligible sometime before the season starts and then he is screwed.

    He’d better get out while the getting is good.

    …well there’s alway the UFL & CFL – even COMPLETE IDIOTS have hope of making a better living than alot of us!!!

  18. realitypolice says: Jun 3, 2011 7:35 PM

    I am confused by this “legal guardian” stuff.

    Isn’t he in his 20’s? And isn’t he very close to his mother?

    So close, in fact, that she is under investigation for getting free cars from the same place he did?

  19. peester15 says: Jun 3, 2011 7:53 PM

    I think he would make a “great” backup Q.B. in the CFL.

    Draft Position :)

    Pryor is a diva that just forced his coach to resign. Have fun playing TE for a few years in the NFL. The sad thing is he will probablly go in the supplemental draft and be the highest supplemental draft pick in history.

    By the time next draft rolls around Terrelle’s guardians may be carrying batons and wearing sidearms.

  24. tobiathan says: Jun 3, 2011 10:31 PM

    The fact that he is over 18 w/a “legal guardian” says a lot to me.

    Is he a ‘tard?

    (Sorry ‘tards!)

  25. No Tiki No Washy says: Jun 3, 2011 11:13 PM

    What is the difference between Pryor and Newton? One heisman, one bcs championship and a few very costly tattooes. Not to mention probably about 30 million dollars.

  26. thetooloftools says: Jun 3, 2011 11:24 PM

    What really torques me is that when Pryor went into the tattoo shop with pants and jerseys and shoulder pads and helmets they asked how he got all that stuff and he said “I get whatever I want”.
    Somebody at Ohio State has to try to explain that away. From now on I wouldn’t give players rings or gold pants or ANYTHING until they graduate so they CAN’T sell anything. This isn’t hard to stop here folks.

    This dude would be wise to get out of Columbus. Hope a team wastes a draft pick him in the supplemental draft. He’s young and dumb, coming off a surgery. He’s shown his physical and emotional fragility each year. He has a mother who bought him a car, a legal guardian guessing he will return to school, and an ‘advisor’ steering his career. I’m waiting for the pregnant girlfriend.
    If he doesnt leave Columbus, he should be worried about random acts of violence.
    It could be a tough town for him.

    Legal guardian? What is he, fourteen? He is an adult. He is his own legal guardian. These young men need to start acting like adults and that is not going to happen until society starts treating them as such and cuts the proverbial apron strings.

    Another spoiled self-entitled athlete who had everything handed to him.
