With former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor heading to the supplemental draft by way of Jon Gruden's QB Camp (which airs tonight on ESPN), I thought it was time to turn on the tape and do a detailed scouting report. I stayed away from the "intangibles" stuff and dealt with what I saw on the field. Short version of the eval is that while Pryor has potential, there's a LOT of work to do. The NFL team that takes him had better have a very specific schematic plan. Because, to use a word I've come to enjoy, he's not scheme-transcendent at all, and I almost wonder if he'd get picked higher than he will as a quarterback if he had a lot of tape as a receiver.

Is a high-variance quarterback inherently worth more to a team that's a fringe contender? What in the heck has gotten into Jerricho Cotchery? Why is Jared Cook so confusing?
