Pryor had to serve the suspension when he was allowed to participate in the supplemental draft. Pryor left Ohio State instead of serving a five-game ban after being involved in a cash-for-memorabilia scandal that has put the Buckeyes under NCAA investigation.  ”He’s very talented,” coach Hue Jackson said. ”I thought he did some good things but we’ll continue this week to do that, to get him back in the mix with his teammates so that I can see him a little bit more and evaluate that talent and see where I can put it.”

Pryor was selected by the Raiders in the third round of the supplemental draft Aug. 22. He took part in three practices during preseason but has only been allowed to attend meetings and do individual drills on his own since the end of the exhibition season. Pryor is coming off his best season statistically at Ohio State, throwing for 2,772 yards and 27 touchdowns with 11 interceptions. He ran for 754 yards and four TDs and helped the Buckeyes win the Sugar Bowl.
