San Francisco Chronicle reporter Vittorio Tafur is reporting that not even 12 hours has gone by, but ALREADY the Oakland Raiders Head Coach Hue Jackson has proclaimed the scandal-filled EX-Ohio State Quarterback Terrelle Pryor as their starting Quarterback for the upcoming 2011-2012 NFL season.


As I reported on last week, Yesterday the Raiders picked Pryor in the third round of the 2011 NFL Supplemental Draft, (which is amazing as he "might" not be allowed to play ANY NFL football until week 6 against the Cleveland Browns as the NFL has suspended him for the NCAA scandal he was apart of at Ohio State).

Pryor's agent, Drew Rosenhaus talked about how happy Pryor was to be picked:

We're tickled and thrilled that Terrelle went in the third round and to the Raiders. The third round is quite an accomplishment for a young man who had his pro day 48 hours ago and didn't know he would be in the draft until Thursday morning and wasn't able to meet with any decision makers. We all know how Al Davis likes big players who can run and Terrelle brings a dimension of size and speed that's unique to the quarterback position. The Raiders are a good fit for him because they have had an unsettled quarterback situation for a number of years and have worked in a number of different players. Any young quarterback would like the opportunity to go there and compete and be the guy.

Hopefully he can prove to EVERYONE that he can break the "Oakland Raiders Quarterback Curse", as for YEARS the team have had trouble, (since the 2002 season) building the team behind their MANY Quarterbacks.
