09:04 AM ET 07.09 | An NFL executive who has studied Terrelle Pryor said, "...he's not a well-liked kid. Very self-absorbed. He doesn???t have the leadership you want in a quarterback. I've got more issues with that than his arm."

Whatever

I wouldn't waste a draft pick on this kid. If I needed a QB I'd simply wait until next year - better players coming out.

they need to get in line.....and the line is long

He's a diva. A perfect candidate to hold a clipboard on Sundays.

Probably an avid reader of Fan Nation.

Why isn't this Executive working on the CBA, not worrying about potential draft picks?

If Cam Newton can go number one overall . . . .someone will take him.

Not even a 6th or 7th? Use him as a WR.

I'm a life-long OSU fan, which will probably open me up to lots of hate on this forum, but I agree. What he showed me at OSU was that all he cares about is himself. He didn't work to improve and he can't read defenses. He can throw but his accuracy is terrible. The only reason he completed so many passes is because his WRs made so many outstanding catches on poorly-thrown balls. I can't tell you how many times I saw him miss a wide-open receiver by ten yards, even in the flat. He may eventually be a QB but I doubt it and to be honest, he's not worth the trouble.

He was awesome in high school and he had his moments in college, strictly because of his athletic abilities. That's not nearly enough to succeed in the NFL. I wouldn't even sign him unless as a free agent with no signing bonus and lots of performance bonuses, which he likely couldn't reach.

Depending on his NFL employer, that might make him over-qualified...

any team stupid enough to waste a draft pick on this pos deserves the crap they will endure, from the press, their fans and enough from pryor who feels soooo entitled to everything.

This kid sounds like a candidate for the Raiders, at least as long as Al Davis is alive.

TP would be a fresh soul for Al, which would only prolong Al's life.

Another college player who gets to bolt while the program he helped unravel cleans up after him. TP's best bet might have been to stay in school and show a little bit of character and some accountability. It's not like he's going to strike it rich in the supplemental draft. Even Drew Rosenhaus has to know there aren't too many ways he can shine up this terd.

Tell me who the Executive is and I'll show you all the bad picks he's made during his career. Remember nobody picked Warren Moon and somebody picked Ryan Leaf and twenty or thirty other bad quarterbacks in early rounds. Enough said..........

You guys werent crying that when he was winning games...Ohio State fans praised the guy and at as if he was the next big thing...So dont be bothered that he F up and got caught being a idiot. Why not use a 6 round pick on a guy who is athletic and has a chance to maybe be a ok football player.
