In just a short amount of time, Cleveland Browns wide receiver Terrelle Pryor has become one of the team’s most dangerous threats. Making the switch from quarterback to receiver is finally paying off.

With a team high 40 targets, Pryor has 19 receptions, 290 receiving yards and two touchdowns so far this season. This includes a monster Week 3 performance against the Miami Dolphins, when the 6-foot-6 receiver had eight receptions for 144 yards.
This off-season was Pryor’s first chance to take a full summer to work on his position transition. Because of his great work ethic and size, the 27-year-old made great strides in his game, and much of his support came from wide receiver legend Randy Moss.
Recently on PFT Live, Pryor revealed the most helpful advice Moss gave him.
“Tunnel vision,” Pryor said. “Stay in tune, block out anything outside and keep that tunnel vision and go forward, no matter what happens. Sometimes games are gonna be bad, sometimes things are gonna happen that you don’t want, and [Moss] said, ‘Just keep on going forward because it’s a long season and there’s a lot of plays to be made.’ He said, ‘Just make sure when the ball comes to you, make the play, period.’ That’s the type of stuff we talk about all the time.”

This is good advice not just for Pryor, but for all athletes. When there is a bad play, it’s important to have a short memory and move forward, and when you have an opportunity to make a play, make it.
