steelers interested in Pryor ?
 
i'd spend a fifth on him...maybe even a 4th... he says he'll play any position that he's asked to play. dude is 6'5' 232lbs and runs a low 4.3 to 4.4 ... he could be a slash 5.0.
dixon wants out anyway, might as well give him his walking papers.

Pryor stages workout for NFL teams, accepts suspension


Terrelle Pryor worked out for 17 NFL teams Saturday and said afterward he wouldn't appeal his five-week suspension at the start of the NFL season.
More than half of the NFL's teams sent representatives to watch the former Ohio State quarterback try to prove he should be taken in Monday's supplemental draft. NFL Network’s Albert Breer reported the teams in attendance included the 49ers, Bengals, Bills, Browns, Buccaneers, Chargers, Chiefs, Colts, Cowboys, Dolphins, Eagles, Lions, Patriots, Raiders, Redskins, Saints and Steelers.
Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert and head coach Mike Tomlin were present, according to Breer, along with former Ohio State coach Jim Tressel.



"I have made arrangements for him to meet with several general managers," Drew Rosenhaus, Pryor's agent, said Saturday. The NFL granted Pryor eligibility into the draft on Thursday with the caveat that he wouldn't be allowed to practice for the team that selected him until Week 6. Pryor would have faced a five-game suspension had he stayed at Ohio State. Rosenhaus echoed a message delivered by Pryor, who said Saturday he will not appeal the five-game suspension imposed by the NFL, as his attorney hinted at on Friday. Pryor said he would sign with any team that picked him in the supplemental draft instead of trying his chances again in the regular draft in the spring.
Breer reported that while Pryor won’t be able to practice or play during his five-game suspension, he will be able to do field work with coaches, according to multiple sources. Rosenhaus told reporters Saturday that Pryor can participate in preseason games and training camp practices. The agent also said the quarterback will be allowed to attend team meetings and work out at team facilities during his suspension.
Pryor appeared in top shape Saturday, working out at a high school stadium near his hometown of Jeannette, Pa. Breer reported one scout clocked Pryor’s first 40-yard dash -- on FieldTurf -- at 4.38 seconds, with his second slightly slower in the 4.4-second range. The Associated Press reported Pryor's first 40-yard time was as fast as 4.36 seconds.
Pryor measured out at 6-foot-4 3/4 and 232 pounds, according to NFL.com senior analyst Gil Brandt, who cited multiple team sources to report that Pryor's workout showed off his strong arm, but revealed problems with his mechanics. Sources told Brandt that Pryor showed "a lot of potential."
Tressel chose to support his former star player after resigning under pressure amid an NCAA investigation that Pryor and others improperly sold memorabilia.
Pryor left school for the NFL after Tressel's departure.
"Did great," Tressel said of Pryor. "He would help lots of teams."
One team appears to have already dropped out of the mix. The Colts took a close look, but owner Jim Irsay let it be known the team won't be using a draft pick on Pryor in a Twitter update he posted Saturday.

I'm not sure Slash 1.0 worked out well enough for us for that to be a selling point. But, yeah, why not, if he can play at least one position well. I think we're set at WR, but who knows?

A 5th rounder would be a worth while gamble on potential alone!

I'm not sure I would want him, unless he could be a WR. I feel like teams that employ the wildcat don't have a good quarterback, so they have to fool you to be successful. If he can catch, he could take what we thought would be Limas Sweed's role.

If and when a slash type Qb wins the Super Bowl, i will be more interested. For now it is proven that accurate pocket passers are the guys that you would want. A little mobility is helpful but if they are too mobile, they will want to run instead of throw.

Since the Steelers regard 4th and 5th round picks to have little value (e.g. - giving picks away to trade up and draft Sepulveda; drafting Dennis Dixon, the Pryor of his day) I would not be surprised if they blew a draft pick on Pryor

as a permanent qb ? hell no.... but as an athletic role player , i'd say korkie did pretty well.
with pryors size and speed , assuming he can catch, he could line up at any position. :noidea:
