Terrelle Pryor works out, watches film with Jon Gruden

AP

A special edition of Jon Gruden’s QB Camp is coming to ESPN, courtesy of former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor.

Per the St. Petersburg Times, Pryor threw passes to USF players on Monday, with Gruden and ESPN cameras present.  The duo also spent six hours watching film.

“There’s too much to learn from him,” Pryor said.  “I enjoyed the time.  He’s a great coach and a great mentor.  I’m just trying to get better.”

Pryor then said that agent Drew Rosenhaus has asked Pryor not to speak about his preparations for the supplemental draft.  Eventually, look for Gruden to do plenty of talking.

  1. Oh I can just hear Chucky now .. “Everyone is sour on this Pryor kid but let me tell you..he has the physical tools and smarts to be a top 5 qb in this league in 2 years if someone gives him the chance. And his agent Rosenhaus is a stand up guy. One of the finest, classiest agents in this business”

  2. I know this is an unpopular opinion, but personally I hope Jon does a lot of talking to Jay, and the Bengals use a fourth round pick on the guy. Mike Brown wants to be known as a redeemer, and Pryor is a perfect candidate…

  3. did anybody to know that Hue Jackson & Jon Gruden used to live together for a few months back in the day?

    Just got off the phone with Al, he said Mr.Pryor might look good in Silver & Black…

  4. to be quite honest, i watch a lot of football but this is the first time i have even recognized the supplemental draft and taken the time to find out how it works…the lengths we go to in the time of a lockout.
    im was also momentarily giddy at the idea of watching another Gruden QB camp…god we need football.

  5. Pryor can’t be dumber or less accurate than Newton in his workouts. No one talking about the other guys suspended from OSU. DeVier Posey could get drafted ahead of Pryor if he enters. He was 5 star recruit who put up good numbers in college so far. Mike Adams, Daniel Herron, also.

  6. 5th round pick by a team that has capacity to take on projects at QB. Possibly Philly. They’ve had success doing this (Feely, Kolb, Vick) and then flipping them for higher picks (Feely, probably Kolb).

  7. “Everyone is sour on this Pryor kid but let me tell you..he has the physical tools and smarts to be a top 5 qb in this league in 2 years if someone gives him the chance. And his agent Rosenhaus is a stand up guy. One of the finest, classiest agents in this business”

    I can literally hear Gruden say that in my head. That’s how believable it is.

  8. First Tressell, Then Rosenhaus, Then backed by Ocho Cinco after playing catch, now watching film with Gruden? O, man this guy has touched every football disaster he could have. Being a raider fan, most people say he is a target for OAK, but being that we have never used a supplemental draft pick in team history … in over 25 years or something … don’t see it happening. I just wanna know where he gets his tatts done, I have some old Pop-Warney jerseys, I mean I was an All-Star one year …

  9. I heard the film they watched was Sleepaway Camp followed by Night of the Demons. Terrell ended up sleeping under the bed.

  10. mid level pick? are you kidding me? this guy hasn’t been able to hit the broad side of a barn with a football his whole football career!

    I’ll draw comparisons to Cam Newton, neither one of them will ever be an elite quarterback!

    Oh take off your Buckeye-crimson colored glasses, the Bengals need this guy like they need another Bob Bratkowski…

  12. Uh gruden turned journeyman rich Gannon into a league MVP. Revitalized Jeff Garcia’s career. While he hasnt fine a damn thing with rookies people who say who has he developed miss the big picture.

  13. Great thought hobart. All 3 of the guys you mentioned would probably be a better supplemental pick than Pryor. Those 3 guys will make a team somewhere and start right away on the right teams.

  14. Oh take off your Buckeye-crimson colored glasses, the Bengals need this guy like they need another Bob Bratkowski…

    I hate the Buckeyes. I love what’s happened to them.

    But I also enjoy watching the Bengals. And a mobile QB who could potentially make things happen despite having a terrible offensive line would at least make the games interesting. The last two seasons have been a snooze fest.

  15. I say he’s a Raider. They need a QB to build to the future and he has the intangibles that Al is looking for. Should be sweet for them.

  16. This ain’t no film I wanna watch. Where be the ho’s?? Chuckie told me we was gonna watch Debbie does Dallas……

    I wanna laugh at the team that drafts this stiff. But as a long suffering Raider fan, that laughter I hear will just be from fans of other teams. I just know Clueless “Coach” Davis is gonna make Pryor his next “great playaaa”. Sucks to be us…….

  17. I’ve been to at least 24 games that Pryor has started including The Rose Bowl, he’s clueless when it comes to reading defenses and going through his progressions…there’s no way this dude makes it as a QB in the NFL, I still can’t figure out what Tressel saw in this kid…aside from his lack of QB intelligence, his wind up might be worse than Byron Leftwich’s, never mind the fact that he can’t throw any intermediate routes…

    Have you seen Andy Dalton play in college? The guy is mobile and can actually read defenses and make SMART decisions when throwing the football… Pryor cannot. You’re Bengals already got your rookie QB, and a much better one than Pryor to boot.

    And where did that information come from..Oh yes, ESPN. The same sports network who is now throwing one of their own under the bus after they used everything “non-sourced” information to smear Cam Newton, and his father simply because he choose Auburn over a more media liked college.

    Something tells me that because Pryor went to a OSU, he will get a chance to prove himself, unlike Cam.

    Welcome to media controlled sports.

  20. Gruden on Pryor, “Just shaking his huge hands you gotta love the size on this guy, 6’5, 4.3 speed and a proven college winner. I think he grows from what he has been thru in college and just gets under center and plays football, he is an elite athelete, boy i tell ya mike, this guy is going to be on his way to the top in this league in a hurry, gotta love pryor.”

  21. Just wait for the part where Gurden talks about how much he loves something. That’s about the only part of his interviews that don’t seem completely fake. Especially when you consider all the stuff he’s seen doing on the shows he use to pay an assistant coach to do for him.

  22. Well if he has no chance in hell at being a successful NFL quarterback look to see him in a bears uniform very shortly. We seem to like to take dumb chances and selling the future for one damn player that’s no better than average at best. How many qb’s have my bears ever developed? He’s a perfect 3rd stringer for us. Doh!!!!!!

  23. Having Pryor run your offense at QB is like having Dez Bryant manage your checkbook or Big Ben taking your teenage daughter to prom. He could not the broadside of a farm with football let alone a barn!

    Media does have bias and agendas…but this is way off base IMO. The reason I know Cam was inaccurate at the Combine is that I watched it live on NFLN. You don’t need the media to bias you any one way if you are watching it live.

  25. He is not an NFL QB, heck he wasn’t even a good NCAA QB. I’m a Buckeye fan and watched all of his games, he is not a good QB. His best bet is as a WR, he has good speed and is strong. He was a great runner but a below average QB
