It should not come as a shock that Terrelle Pryor went to the Raiders in the third round of the NFL supplemental draft. People can say what they want about Pryor, but he is a talented young man. His judgement in college at times was bad, but a fresh start is probably what he needs. The Oakland Raiders are a good fit for Pryor for a few different reasons. Let us look at why this is a good fit for Pryor and the Raiders.
First the Raiders need stability at quarterback which is something they have not had in a very long time. Pryor can give that to them. He also can become the face of the franchise which is what the Raiders need as well. Pryor can become a leader and will lead by example which is important as well. Given time he can become a good quarterback and someone the Raiders can build around. The key is not too rush him and let him learn how to play NFL quarterback.
Many people might compare him to JaMarcus Russell, but it's not even close. If Pryor is given the time to develop he will become a very good NFL quarterback. The key will be if the Raiders gives him the time he needs. I think this is a good fit for both parties involved.
