There is not a practice that goes by where Terrelle Pryor doesn’t just make you shake your head and marvel at his abilities. The 6-foot4, 228-pound wide receiver’s legs are so long that it doesn’t even look like he is moving fast, but he covers a lot of ground in no time. In recent days, Pryor has displayed great route-running ability. He sells deep routes well and then slams on the brakes smoothly and comes back to the ball, creating three to four yards of separation, makes the catch and turns upfield for a gain.
On Saturday, Pryor impressed with his catch radius, where his 6foot-11 wingspan comes into play. On one play, the pass from quarterback Kirk Cousins sailed higher than intended, and it looked as if it would fly over Pryor’s head. The safety playing 10 yards further upfield was in position to charge the ball for a possible interception. But Pryor — running a crossing route — leapt and plucked the ball from the air. The catch radius will bail Cousins out from time to time, and Pryor’s size will also keep the chains moving. On another play, cornerback Bashaud Breeland blanketed Pryor in coverage and then met the receiver right as the ball got there. But because of his size advantage, Pryor barely budged as he shielded the 5-foot-11, 195-pound Breeland from the ball to make the catch.
