As reported on Wednesday, Terrelle Pryor has a passer rating of 97.6 which puts him in seventh place. Only Peyton Manning, Tony Romo, Philip Rivers, Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, and Matt Ryan stand in front of Pryor.
Other passing ratings stats give Pryor a nice boost to his improvement as well. For instance, his 72.7 passing rating from the pocket lands him in fourth place, which is a better passing rate than Brees and Rodgers.
Terrelle Pryor has made a huge turn around with his mechanics since training camp. Some of this success has been credited to offensive coordinator Greg Olson who has designed plays that specifically fit Pryor’s style of play.
Also, Pryor had also trained with USC’s pitching coach and major league pitcher Tom House during the break this year. House is known to be a guru with throwing mechanics and has helped many quarterbacks in the past such as Tom Brady.
Pryor claims to have learned from House and thinks that his mechanics have improved due to House’s training. Pryor also gives credit to his current quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo.
In the end, Terrelle Pryor has stepped up to the plate in many ways for the Oakland Raiders so far into the 2013 NFL season.
However, there is still a long way to go for Pryor this season, but his improvements have already shown promises for the Raiders. Consistency and composure will be the next step for Pryor while getting better with his mechanics.
