Terrelle Pryor Doesn't Make Sense For Bills

We haven't spent a lot of time covering Terrelle Pryor's exodus from Ohio State, mostly because it has nothing to do with the Buffalo Bills. Now that he's out, and now that the NFL Supplemental Draft is his "desire" (with the CFL and UFL as possible fallback options), fans of NFL teams everywhere will be talking about the idea of their team spending a future pick to bring in Pryor now.

I'm not big on that idea, and I seriously doubt the Bills will be, either.

Like many of you, I've seen Pryor play a lot, since he came to OSU as a highly-touted recruit. In three years, he produced quite a bit and won a lot of games, but to my highly amateur eye, he wasn't a player that showed much pro quarterback skill on the college gridiron. I felt a bit vindicated on Wednesday when Greg Cosell (NFL Films) spelled out his mechanical and arm strength flaws, spoke of the simplicity of his offense, said that he saw "no attributes that transition to NFL," and called him a "late round pick at best."

This is not a player Buffalo's scouts will have spent a lot of time on. His flaws as a quarterback are obvious. Asking him to switch positions is risky when you're not well-versed regarding his athletic abilities. I'd pass on Pryor, and I'm very comfortable predicting that the Bills would, too.
