Why am I not surprised?
Should have been a 5th round choice. Hell, maybe a 6th. Raiders are crazy...
The Raiders must see something I don't.
Yeah, Big Al is a bit nuts. This leaves them without a 2nd, a 3rd and a 4th in next years draft.
Edit: wrong one. RAIDER FAIL!
The Raiders will get a 3rd in this year's draft due to losing players like Aso & Miller. It's no big surprise, I'm pretty sure everyone knew he'd be a Raider after running a 4.38. I don't want to get my hopes up, but I'd like to see what Hue can do with Pryor. If anything, he could become a decent #2 QB and we can draft a future #1. Or if that fails, he does have the build of a WR...maybe we can turn him into a decent one.
The Raiders would win the NFL 4 X 100 relay if there was one.
Someone please explain to me why Pryor will be suspended for the first 5 ganes this seaaon?
Because Roger Goodell is a moron.
And their second team would be socond. They are an olympic track team in a football helment.
It was the carrot given to allow him in the draft. The supplemental draft is for people kicked out of school or who graduate, Pryor quite school..
I personally think it is awesome, an NCAA player facing NFL sanctions. I'm sure it will be appealed and Pryor will win, but I like the move.
The NFL was pissed about him "hijacking the draft" then let him in anyways.
It's always about the 40 for Al.
What a reach.
I'm not sure if its as big of a reach as some of you guys make it out to be. We will almost surely get a 3rd back because of losing Aso alone, and then maybe another 3rd from losing Zach Miller.
I think taking Pryor with our 3rd is well worth the risk, but then again, I may be slightly biased.
Somebody has a hard-on for black QBs who like to run.
Geez, is this ALL the Raiders are going to do: Make reaches for black QBs who are woefully lacking in the area of everything related to being a QB in the NFL?
Amazing. Simply amazing. Everybody on the planet had this guy going to the Raiders. Am I right? Yes, I am.
Read this on another forum, hope it doesn't turn out to be true...but still funny as hell.
What does that have to do with Pryor and this pick? And how did I mess up that quote?
Well directly, it has nothing to do with Pryor. But we have the potential to get up to two 3rd round picks back, so the 3rd we used on Pryor won't be missed as much if Pryor does fail 2-3 years down the road. Also, I hate how some sites are reporting the Raiders are without a 2nd, 3rd, and 4th in the upcoming draft. I believe the 4th round pick was conditional on if we made the playoffs and if Jason Campbell made the Pro Bowl this year... I doubt either will happen.
The Raiders have made some idiotic moves these past few years, I don't think this one is that bad. I guess we'll find out in a few years time how good/bad this move was, until then, I just want to get this season done and over with.
