ALAMEDA, CA - Terrelle Pryor is still far from being a polished quarterback for the Oakland Raiders and isn't likely to move up the depth chart any time soon.
His footwork needs improvement and he's still trying to get comfortable staying in the pocket instead of taking off on a run as he did many times in college.
Pryor is making progress, though. He put up 227 yards of offense and threw a pair of touchdown passes in second half of the Raiders' 31-20 preseason win over Detroit in what was easily the highlight of his young NFL career.
More than the numbers, Raiders coach Dennis Allen was impressed with Pryor's command of the huddle and his communication. Those were two issues the third-string quarterback struggled with in training camp.
