Few NFL teams can boast what the Oakland Raiders have, which is a third string quarterback like Terrelle Pryor. He has the talent, athletic ability, and unique skills that set him apart from most quarterbacks, but his most important attribute is his work ethic.
“I love to work hard. In my mind, if I work hard and I don’t take plays off and stuff like that, I think I’m getting that one percent,” Pryor said during mandatory mini-camp. “I’m working hard every day. Sometimes it’s not the best days but I’m still learning a new offense here. Especially me, I’m not taking a lot of reps. When I’m taking certain reps, it’s just not crisp right now. After I get a couple reps, I should be fine.”
Several factors could hinder Pryor's development this season. As of now he is working as the third string quarterback which means limited reps. With the Raiders implementing a new offensive system under coordinator Greg Knapp, starter Carson Palmer is getting the majority of reps. Back-up
