Bengals Legend Ken Anderson To Coach Terrelle Pryor For NFL's Supplemental Draft

Terrelle Pryor is a young man that, within a year, went from a Heisman hopeful to a prospect without a team. Because he declared for the NFL Supplemental Draft this year, Pryor elected to forgo his return to the Ohio State Buckeyes nor would he cooperate with NCAA investigators. Some might pile on Pryor for the last point and that's fine. But another point of view is that by not talking with investigators, he's protecting his former teammates and school.

Regardless, Pryor has to plan for the future. He worked out with Chad Ochocinco, who went his own way promoting the prospects of Pryor. He's already declined an invitation to the CFL, even though most suggest that would be his best path because he'd play and maybe even start at quarterback, developing at a quicker pace. Who knows about the NFL. Even if he is drafted, will he even play?

But it does help that Bengals legend Ken Anderson is grooming Pryor as his coach for the upcoming supplemental draft, according to Pro Football Talk.

Joe Reedy writes "Anderson will work with Pryor the next couple of weeks in Fort Lauderdale."

“I think he’s an interesting kid. He’s throwing motion and arm is good and he can make all the throws,” Anderson said. “We’re working on a lot of different things right now like NFL concepts, the passing tree and footwork. He does a nice job understanding things and how it translates.”

Personally speaking, I think the Bengals will entertain drafting Pryor. The could be there, though we highly doubt the interest has anything to do with his throwing arm. It's Pryor's athleticism that could entertain the Bengals and most NFL teams. Based on the school that nothing surprises us when it comes to Mike Brown, we could see the Bengals drafting Pryor. However, we doubt it'll happen.
