08:02 AM ET 06.13 | Would a team like the Raiders, or 49ers, make a play for Terrelle Pryor? The debate over what position Pryor will play isn't a debate at all. Quarterback? Wide receiver? Maybe even an Antonio Gates-type tight end? Doesn't matter. You worry about that later. ... The truth is, Pryor, at 6-foot-6 and 240 pounds, has considerably more experience as a college quarterback than Cam Newton, with a 31-4 record and MVP awards in BCS wins in the Rose and Sugar bowls. He's a faster runner than Newton and has comparable arm strength. Former Ohio State assistant Doug Plank said Pryor was the fastest player on the Ohio State roster, which included Chimdi Chekwa, the fleet corner the Raiders drafted in the fourth round.

Congrats to your Mavs, Otis. It was great to see LeFraud and his toadies lose.

Dallas, thank you for keeping America's nightmare from coming true!

I still think Cam will be a bust. Pryor won't fair much better in my opinion.

Plax has announced that he's going to announce something later today.

Feels good to beat a team so full of themselves!

Pryor is one of the most gifted athletes to play the game, is he ready to be a NFL quarterback? I don't think so (yet). He will certainly be an asset to any team that drafts him.

I may need to get down there. There are times when I need to be a part of the crowd.

I'm not sure either one is really qualified to hold the others jock.... fact is I believe strongly neither will make in the pros.
