Tim Brown is amazed by Terrelle Pryor’s development
When the Raiders used a draft pick to draft Terrelle Pryor as a supplemental draft pock one of his biggest critics was Former Raider WR Tim Brown. Brown had some pretty controversial comments about the OSU product but now is impressed. Brown seems to be eating crow and admitting he was wrong about Pryor.
I am shocked that this man has come around as quickly as he has,” said Brown. “A couple two or three years ago, I covered him with my gig with ESPN and was down on the field and got to stand right by him and could not believe how big this kid was. But then I watched him play and said ‘well, he’ll be in the NFL but he’s not gonna be a quarterback. He’s gonna be a tight end or something’ because I saw no NFL quarterback skills at all. He could throw a deep ball but he couldn’t throw an out route to save his life.
“I think from that standpoint to see how he has come around in two, three short years is remarkable. And it shows you if you work hard and do what you need to do then things can work out for you. But I’m pretty impressed with him. Hopefully he’ll come back this week and keep improving and keep trying to make something happen for himself.”
That is great because Pryor has impressed me as well. Tim I guess we can eat crow together.
