Terrelle Pryor appears as a starting receiver on Cleveland’s first depth chart

AP

Terrelle Pryor’s transition to receiver is apparently going pretty well.

Via Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Browns have issued their first training-camp depth chart. Pryor is listed as a starting receiver.

Also on the first string is rookie first-rounder Corey Coleman. The second-string receivers are Andrew Hawkins and Marlon Moore.

Josh Gordon does not have a spot on the depth chart, because he has yet to practice with the team. Even if Gordon climbs the ladder quickly, his four-game suspension puts Pryor currently on track to start in Week One. Which is an impressive development for a guy who reluctantly gave up the quarterback position and embraced playing receiver.

Pryor entered the league five years ago as a third-round pick in the supplemental draft. He started nine games for the Raiders at quarterback in 2013.

  1. T.P. would have saved himself a lot of grief if he’d done that 5 years ago. Like I told him to. Same situation with Logan Thomas who could be a starting TE in the league.

  2. QB’s already have to have good hands. When a guy is an athlete like Pryor, no reason he can’t excel at WR.

  3. Terrelle Pryor, Corey Coleman, Andrew Hawkins, and Marlon Moore….

    I am willing to bet that none of them get drafted in any fantasy league. Even in Brown’s Fans only leagues that are 20 teams deep.

  4. My first thought was, good for Pryor. At least he’s smart enough to switch positions because he doesn’t have the talent to play QB at the NFL level (unlike someone else who still thinks he can play QB even though no teams agree with him).

    My second though was if Pryor is a starting WR what does that really say about your receiving corps? Maybe he’s better than what everyone thinks. He does have the physical talent so if he can make the transition like Braxton Miller has then he can contribute on the field.

    He could be really fun to watch with his size, speed and athleticism.

  5. When TP was with Seattle He was once asked in an interview if he would consider a mover to WR, and he said ” I would if I could catch”……Hmmmmm

  6. That can be one heck of a flea flicker play (think Titans v. Bills) with a screen/lateral to Pryor and a bomb to Coleman. Also, why carry a third QB on the depth chart when you have Pryor at WR/QB?

  7. Say what you will about the man, but he’s willing (or seems) to do whatever it takes to play in the league.
    From what I have seen, he appears to have grown up, taken his craft seriously and is doing is darndest to excel.
    My hat goes off to him. It’s nice to see guys like that overcome adversity, change positions and do what they can do in their power to excel in life!!!
    Another great story of someone beating the odds, opposed to a Johnny M that takes everything for granted.

    Coleman will be drafted for sure, and Pryor will be a late round flyer.

    What’s the bet?

    This article is the football equivalent of; “If a tree falls in the forest…

    …says the guy who read and then commented on the story.

  10. Disagree – think Coleman could be a sleeper pick late rounds. He’s a #1 on a team that will lose a lot – which means they will have to throw the ball to catch up. That and the RBs Crowell and Duke J (PPR league) I think will be good as well.
