Pryor was widely considered to be the best NFL prospect in the country in 2008 and was a potential multi-sport athlete after also being heralded as one of the nation's most promising basketball players.
However, he eventually opted to pursue a career on the gridiron and was drafted as a quarterback by the Oakland Raiders before later transitioning to wide receiver with the Cleveland Browns in 2015.
He would play the same position in further stints with the Washington Redskins, New York Jets, Buffalo Bills as well as the Jaguars.Also on rt.com 'It’s a sham': Kaepernick handed chance to end NFL exile with open workout, but fans claim he shouldn't have to prove anything
