The Raiders drafted Pryor in the 3rd round of the 2011 Supplemental Draft out of Ohio State, but the early results yielded only flashes of skill, not any semblance of starting material. Pryor lost his first start with the Raiders in 2012 and went 3-6 as the starter in 2013, ultimately being benched in favor of the undrafted Matt McGloin. The Raiders traded Pryor at the end of the 2013 season to the Seattle Seahawks, but Pryor was cut by the NFC Champions at the end of training camp.
Pryor set an NFL record in 2013 by recording the longest rushing play by a QB in NFL history with a 93-yard TD run in a win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
As a QB at The Ohio State University, Pryor led the Buckeyes to three straight top 10 finishes, including a 2009 Rose Bowl win over the Wisconsin Badgers. Pryor was the last QB ever coached by legendary Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel.
