Incapable of playing quarterback in the NFL, the Oakland Raiders should make Terrelle Pryor compete as a wide receiver

Instead of taking up space, Terrelle Pryor’s ample talents should be utilized elsewhere.

Lacking the ability to throw with velocity or accuracy, Yahoo’s Mike Silver reports there is “much organizational skepticism” surrounding Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor.

Expected to soon clip Carson Palmer, there is speculation that Oakland may enter training camp with the 23-year-old Pryor battling free agent Vince Young and West Virginia rookie Geno Smith for the starting job under center.

The 6-foot-5, 233 pound Pryor, who the Raiders took out of The Ohio State University in the third round of the 2011 Supplemental Draft, is a tremendously gifted athlete.

Unfortunately for Oakland and the 2010 Rose Bowl MVP, being a precise passer is imperative and Pryor lacks even a shred of touch on the ball.

Considering how erratic Pryor is, the former Buckeye, who once ran the 40-yard dash in 4.32 seconds, 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, Oakland’s suits should maximize Terrelle Pryor’s athleticism and gain a new weapon in “The Town.”
