Just because former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor left Columbus after the NFL Draft had already taken place, that doesn't mean he was going to escape the evaluating eye of ESPN analyst and former head coach Jon Gruden. Much like Gruden did with quarterbacks Cam Newton, Andy Dalton, Blaine Gabbert and Christian Ponder, Gruden sat down with Pryor for a film session that is set to debut on ESPN as an hour-long special on June 30th.
Of course, given it's Terrelle Pryor, his abilities as a quarterback weren't the only thing the two discussed. In an excerpt below, Gruden asks Pryor about what happened at Ohio State that caused him to have to leave.
Well it was awful nice of Terrelle to relieve the pressure on his school. Honestly, it's hard for me to get on Pryor's case too much for the things he (allegedly) did while at Ohio State, because I can't say with certainty I wouldn't have done the same things if it were me in his position. That being said, his apology here with Gruden, and the one with new agent Drew Rosenhaus, don't exactly give me the impression that he actually regrets anything.
Odds are Ohio State will regret Terrelle Pryor in the future.
