After another abysmal outing, it’s clear the Oakland Raiders should use Terrelle Pryor as a wide receiver

Terrelle Pryor lacks the skills to become a productive NFL passer.

Battling rookie Tyler Wilson and expected starter Matt Flynn for time under center, Terrelle Pryor struggled in a 28-20 loss to the Saints on Friday night in New Orleans.

Taken out of Ohio State by the Raiders in the third round of the 2011 Supplemental Draft, the 24-year-old Pryor completed 1-of-5 attempts for nine yards and again proved incapable of throwing with any velocity or accuracy.

Being a precise passer is imperative and the 6-foot-5, 233 pound Pryor lacks even a shred of touch on the ball.

The Silver and Black acquired the 28-year-old Flynn from the Seattle Seahawks on April 1 in exchange for a fifth-round selection in 2014 and a “conditional” late-round choice in 2015.

A few weeks later, Oakland chose the 24-year-old Wilson with the 112th pick out of Arkansas.

Justin Bieber will compete in the UFC before the former Buckeye overtakes either Flynn or Wilson.

However, capable of running the 40-yard dash in 4.32 seconds, Pryor is a tremendously gifted athlete who should learn to play wide receiver.

At 4-12 in the AFC West last autumn, the Raiders aren’t exactly brimming with offensive talent and Pryor could absolutely thrive catching the pigskin.

Rather than serving as a middling gump on the sideline, Raiders’ suits should maximize Terrelle Pryor’s athleticism and gain a new weapon in “The Town.”
