They're professionals and are undoubtedly very good at what they do, but after reading that, I feel OK with disagreeing with their assessment.Last year, Nebraska cornerback Prince Amukamara received the top grade from National.
It was a 7.3 for him as well as Iowa defensive end Adrian Clayborn followed by Boston College linebacker Mark Herzlich (7.2), who went undrafted following his bout with cancer, Miami defensive end Allen Bailey (6.9), Texas A&M linebacker Von Miller (6.9, Pitt defensive Greg Romeus (6.8), North Carolina defensive tackle Marvin Austin (6.7), Florida State quarterback Christian Ponder (6.7), Washington quarterback Jake Locker (6.7), Oregon State defensive tackle Stephen Paea (6.5), Boston College offensive tackle Anthony Castonzo (6.5) and Mississippi State defensive end Pernell McPhee (6.4) and Penn State offensive lineman Stefen Wisniewski (6.4).
Pryor's lawyer, Larry James, explained to the AP that his client was not trying to cheat the system by declaring himself for the draft in late-May.
"I don't think anybody on this planet who's paying attention to this thought Terrelle was attempting to game the system" by leaving school early for the NFL, James said.
I have to say that I 100% agree with that, even as a Pryor hater. The guy wasn't trying to get around the normal draft. Before the entire mess unfolded, I believe he had every intention of playing his last 7 games of his career under Tressel.
Pryor wrote on Twitter after Clayton (the source for that article) said he was ineligible:
As soon as I get updated on supp draft, from a real source, I'll let you guys know! God Bless
No no shots at kind sir Mr Clayton! Just when I hear it from my source @RosenhausSports ! have blessed weekend and safe!
Maybe he's not ineligible yet?
anyone the Jets should be looking at?
any pass rushers?
@AdamSchefterOnly two players eligible for supplemental draft so far are Georgia RB Caleb King and N. Illinois DB Tracy Wilson. No word yet on T. Pryor.
King has serious talent. Very highly recruited coming out of HS. If we needed a RB it would be a no brainer. But we don't.
Don't know anything about Tracy Wilson tho.
T-Pryor sucks. So does Tebow and Brad "I just Conned The Bills into Giving Me $15 million" Smith.

See Antonio gates who never played college football and was never the basketball player T Pryor was. T Pryor was rated the seventh power forward in the Nation.(scouts tend to think that position power forward tend to make pretty good NFl Te candidtae) I like his chances to be a top Te or redzone offense weapon. To me thats why this pick was a no brainer for the raiders.
the Raiders may have the fastest 4x100 squad in the league, but the last time I checked this is football not track.
Just suck baby. No 2nd 3rd or 4th next year, welcomes to Redskins West.
Gonna need that 1st round pick for Mr Luck.
God I Love stupid organizations, see Miami, Oakland, Buffalo, Cleveland.
Again lets see if your opinion changes when you see the Raiders speed in week three. DMC and Taiwan Jones are going to be nightmare matchup problems for the jets defense. All day long with pass and run.
Now on to raiders having no 2, third and fourth round pick. What do you think raiders are getting in compensation for losing N Asomugha(richest contract this year in FA) Zach Miller(got A gates type money) and R Gallery) Your looking at Third and fourth rounder.
Now Raiders are getting Potential future QB- a year in their system before next year draft and Two guys that are going to be key players this year for that second. Future Rt Joe barksdale and a Rb (Taiwan Jones) that going to be a lethal weapon- people were makingh chris johnson references with this kid.)
