Terrell Pryor and the Bengals a Match if the QB Enters the Supplemental Draft?

Cincy Jungle poses an interesting question today – should the Bengals knowing the situation with Carson Palmer, take a shot on Ohio State QB Terrell Pryor should he decide to enter the Supplemental Draft? I would have to say “no”, and Josh Kirkendall of Cincy Jungle agrees.

Pryor, in my opinion, isn’t that great of a quarterback in college and I find it hard to believe he’ll amount to anything in the NFL as a passer. His talent and athleticism are tremendous, no doubt. Yet he’s unrefined and it’s not like the Buckeyes have a history of successful quarterbacks in the NFL. Place Pryor in a pocket and he’s particularly ineffective against good defenses, relying completely on his legs to get himself out of jams. Don’t get me wrong; he was exciting and he did get himself out of tremendously tough circumstances with his legs. And he did have games where his arm was impressive. But the NFL? Not as a quarterback.
