Is Pryor a good gamble if your the Skins

Postby frankcal20 » Tue Jun 07, 2011 6:00 pm

Not sure if this is the right place to post but if you're the GM, would you draft Tyrell Pryor in the supplemental draft this year (when there is one). Also, what would you give up. Here's my two cents.

I'd offer a 4th round draft pick. Maybe 3rd depending on interviews. He has accuracy issues but I think a lot of that is due to footwork issues which can be corrected but will take some time to sit on the bench and learn under a Vet QB. Use the 4th rounder you got for J Campbell from the Raiders and pick this guy up. May be a head case but has an athletic gift. Just needs a good role model and some time on the bench to learn under a VET coaching staff.

If I needed a wide receiver I'd consider a 4th or 5th rounder for him. As a qb, nooooooo chance in hell.

I'll pass. I'm with Joe Gibbs on focusing on character guys. Pryor's issue is that he's a self centered dumb jock, we don't need that

I have to pass altogether as well. With Shanny passing on all those QB's in the draft, I doubt that we would have an interest in him as a QB.
With undrafted guys like Joe Devlin still out there and most likely a veteran signing for free agency, I would go as far as to say, no way Shanny is even thinking about him as a QB.

if we go for him, it better be for a flyer pick, a 7th rounder!

I'm still suggesting an 8th round pick - Here's another thread about this

http://www.thehogs.net/forum/viewtopic. ... 6&start=30


I hope we continue to follow the 'plan' and if that includes this idiot, so be it - I am not convinced he's a team first player

this kid does not fit the profile of the players that we are bringing in here
RG3 is now learning how to play QB in the NFL - Mike & Kyle did not help with the transition

Jay & Sean are going to make it happen ... "the things we’re doing are things he’s comfortable with & complement his strengths"

I think this kid has a TON of talent. But we're talking talent that we won't see for a few years. He would be our #3 QB and a player that you could use in certain situations like WildCat, etc. If the coaches are ready to groom a guy, he's a decent investment for a 6th round pick in my opinion. I think he has talent and potential but nothing that I want to see right now.

I say a 6th b/c I think that's what it's going to take to get the guy and it was a round where we were able to get a number of picks this past year in. So essentially it isn't going to cost us anything.

I'd agree that offering a 6 is worth wasting :wink:

I really like that we are picking up players based on their character and how they will make other players here better than players that might be 'stars' but only in their own world (and maybe Fantasy football)

I hope that some other franchise picks him with a 4 or a 5
ESPECIALLY after he ran a 4.4 at his Pro day


NOTHING Pryor 'offers' is as important as which franchise picks him - if he gets picked by a franchise that the media thinks are stupid (Redskins, etc...) then it will be regarded as a stupid investment
HOWEVER, if he is picked up by the Eagles, Patriots, Ravens or Steelers it will then be a great move by that franchise :lol:

Ok, if we are talking about a "Slash" type of guy used in the wildcat, wide receiver, and emergency QB. Pryor said that he is open to playing other postions. It is worth the gamble of a 4th, but I am thinking someone is going 3rd with him. Colts are the only team to say that they aren't interested - smoke screen maybe?
