Randle El won a Super Bowl. So did Desmond Howard, maybe a bit of a stretch for the "slash" title, but not by much.

Ben can. So I guess Ben falls into the slash category too.

If he's there in the 4th or 5th then I think its worth the gamble. He could add another dimension if he gets his head out of his ass. Players with his size, speed and athletic ability are worth the gamble of a mid to low pick.

Peter King thinks the Bengals are going to select Pryor

Teams wishing to acquire a player in a supplemental draft put in a blind bid to the league office today, and the team that bid the highest round for the player is awarded him. So if the Bengals bid a fourth-round pick for Pryor and the Raiders a fifth-, Cincinnati gets him. My favorite to pick the controversial Ohio State quarterback is Cincinnati.


http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/201...p&sct=hp_wr_a2

Given that there are a lot of Ohio stte alums in Cincy who may be upset about Pryor's conduct helping to take out Jim Tressel, Pryor going there may not be met with unanimous enthusiasm - but given that most Steelers fans have been willing to look past non-Steelers related conduct by Roethlisberger, I guess it is a matter of letting bygones be bygones - Just Win Baby

he meant to say athletic QB who is just as much of a threat to score with his legs as his armx

Not with Dixon. Can you see him guiding the Colts offense down the field?
Me neither.

I see no use on the Steelers for Pryor. He can't be a TE because realistically, he isn't going to block DEs or ILBs. He's not better than the WRs on the team. He can't be the H-back as they have tough blocking assignments. Too small to play RG He won't be a better return man than Brown. And I certainly wouldn't want him as a QB.

Can't remember how many bowls we won with SLASH! Pretty much didn't work out for us... I thought.
Can he block?

Don't forget, he can tackle too! Might be a little slow for DB though...

whatever fantasies anyone has had about having Pryor in black and gold is all over, the Raiders, as predicted by many, were foolish enough to fall for his speed and took him in the 3rd round
