Although Terrelle Pryor was thrown to the wolves in his freshman year at Ohio State, he was decent at best in the 2008 Buckeye Football season. All year long he looked uncomfortable and hurried. When put in a tight situation, he resorted to his favorite tactic, scrambling, gaining chunks of yards at a time. But when given the chance to throw the football, he didn't deliver. While his stats don't show it, he didn't showcase any ability to throw deep.

But TP has shaped up in the offseason and the spring game showed some promise for the rising sophomore. He looks to improve on his 146.5 QB rating of last year.

Look for Terrelle Pryor to put up big numbers this season with his young crew.
