Though it's slightly out of season for him, NFL Network's draft guru, Mike Mayock, appeared on Total Access this weekto discuss QB Terrelle Pryor and the NFL supplemental draft, which is expected to be held sometime in July. Recently, Pryor's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, predicted Pryor would be a first round pick.
Most NFL observers say that's not a realistic prediction as the middle rounds appears to be where he'll land. Mayock says the Pryor talk starts with the fourth round and could move up to the third round if some team likes him.
One team Mayock named was the New York Jets, who could be losing a similar player to Pryor in free agency.
"The value for him as a rookie is in packages," Mayock said. "I think the New York Jets are the best wildcat team in the NFL offensively. Why? Because Brad Smith can throw the football just well enough to keep you honest. That's what I think this kid can do. He can be a package quarterback in Year One while you develop his skill set."
Interesting. This would require the Jets to not only put in a bid on Pryor when the supplemental draft comes but to put in the highest bid. I like Mayock's logic and, after thinking about it, this makes some sense. That said, we're still quite a ways from that actually happening.
