I like his athleticism, but I just don't think he'll ever be a good NFL QB. He wasn't even that good a college QB, but his athleticism allowed him to make plays at that level - plays he won't be able to make in the NFL.A lot of people compare him to Newton, but Newton has a much better arm and release, much more potential. I'd take Newton as a QB in the 1st, just the way I'd take Pryor in the 4th or 5th as a WR prospect.If I thought Pryor could be a good NFL QB, I couldn't give a damn less where he came from or what he'd done. And this has nothing to do with any confidence I do or don't have in Colt - it's all about the confidence I don't have in Pryor.

And he is such a headcase, he will never be willing to understand that. Which means he will never buy into a position change.So taking even a flier on him in the the is probably a poor choice. Sure, guys in the 5th are unlikely to contribute. But there chances are greater than 0%, which makes wasting one on a 0%er is stupid.

Struggling veteran Jake Delhomme, 36, is holding the seat warm until a new collective bargaining agreement is reached. After that, Delhomme’s immense $5.4 million salary kicks in and Cleveland is expected to terminate his contract. If you were general manager of the Browns, would you rather have an aging, overpaid veteran as the third-string quarterback, or an inexpensive player with upside like Pryor, who may develop into something greater down the road? The answer is a no-brainer.

Shit, the guy is a physical freak. Jake Delhomme is Jake Long-Gone. And yes, I would keep him at QB. I don't think he has the stuff to go over the middle in the NFL.
Negatives: Would like to see him put a little more velocity on his deep throws... All over the place with his passes, doesn't lead his receivers properly and makes his receivers work for catches... Has improved each year he's been at Ohio State as a passer and should continue to get better with NFL coaching... Throws with a low three-quarters release... Inconsistent footwork, will look like a textbook drop-back passer one play and the next he'll look really sloppy, throws off-balance and on the run too often when under pressure, needs to learn to step into the pressure and deliver accurate passes... Not a great game manager, executes the game plan but when things aren't working, doesn't look to change things up and figure out a solution... Current offense is tailored for his success at the collegiate level rather than NFL success, takes most of his snaps out of the shotgun... Has a reputation as being a little immature
Weaknesses: Pryor is a raw quarterback who needs to greatly improve his accuracy if he is ever going to become a quality starting QB in the NFL. Of the 40 quarterbacks I have charted over the past four years, Pryor’s accuracy ranked 36th out of 40. He needs to stride into and follow through on his passes more consistently in order to improve his accuracy. He obviously needs to work on his mechanics, but if he can improve his accuracy, then the odd look of his release would not be as big of an issue. With the baggage he is bringing from Ohio State, Pryor faces a big job to prove he has the leadership skills and intangibles to lead NFL players.
However, what was particularly alarming to me about Pryor’s game at this stage is the overall lack of development he’s made both mechanically and as a decision-maker from the pocket.The guy is loose with the football in his drop and in the pocket, consistently holding the ball down by his chest plate, which is one of the main reasons he’s had so much trouble taking care of it. And not to be overly critical, but his footwork and overall mechanics from the waist down are atrocious at times. He doesn’t typically stride toward his target when asked to reset his feet in the pocket and fails to consistently maintain the balance needed to instantly get the ball out of his hands. He has a tendency to get both too high and narrow in his base when scanning the field, which causes him to be late with throws since he isn’t always cocked and ready let go of the ball.Mentally, he did a better job toward the end of the year deciphering how to eliminate bad decisions from his game. But at the same time, I don’t think he has figured out yet how to anticipate throws and definitely doesn’t trust his abilities when asked to work the middle of the field. He comes off his reads too quickly once he feels any semblance of pressure and too often drops his eyes/head and looks to take off. At the same time, he gets caught staring down his initial reads too long when he’s able to sit back in the pocket and doesn’t yet have a great grasp on the overall rhythm and timing in the pass game, especially outside the numbers.

He's got to realize, that any chance he has as a starting QB in the NFL isn't happening, and it would be for the best to accept his role, as Kordell Stewart 2.0.And for a team so devoid of any form of playmaker/game changer in the passing game? The Browns may need to take a shot at him. Maybe not a 1st or 2nd, but a 3rd would be well worth it for what he brings as an athlete.
