If the Oakland Raiders are going to take a gamble on Terrelle Pryor they may have to use a third round draft pick.
The question is whether he is worth such a high price. Some believe he is. Others think the gamble won’t pay off because he’s not a pro caliber quarterback.
Jerry McDonald of the Oakland Tribune believes the team’s chances of taking Pryor in the supplemental draft are about 50-50.
The Raiders do not have second- or fourth-round picks to use in the draft.
Certainly a second-round pick would be too high so the Raiders needn’t worry there. However there are no guarantees Pryor will still be available in the fifth-round.
As such the team’s best chance to land Pryor would be in the third round.
Given Jason Campbell is entering a contract year and the team has not offered him a new deal, they could in fact be looking for an understudy. The club was intrigued by Colin Kaepernick during the draft.
The odds of signing Pryor could also go up with the team unlikely to re-sign Bruce Gradkowski.
