Making an incredibly difficult position change look easy, the former Ohio State star has racked up 62 receptions for 855 yards and four touchdowns through just 12 starts to open the year.
Pryor admits that he's pleased with that development, but he's also taking plenty of blame for the fact that his team is yet to tally a win now heading into December.
"Am I happy about the little success I'm having? Yeah. I mean that's everybody. You'd be stupid for somebody to sit up here and say they don't care about them being successful or doing something well," Pryor said, according to Nate Ulrich of The Beacon Journal. “But I feel there's so much more that I could do well that I feel like I'm part of the reason we’re 0-12. That's how I think of it. That's what pushes me every day to try to have a perfect game. ... That's what I’m chasing."
As productive as he's been, leading the Browns in all major categories and ranking eighth among the NFL leaders in yardage, Pryor still sees plenty of room for improvement.
That should be a scary thought for defensive backs around the league.
"I could be so much better it's not even funny," Pryor said. "Some plays that I've missed or some plays that I could've made off of that inexperience, I would say, my numbers, I may be over 1,000 (receiving yards) already, way beyond."
The immediate production and clear potential for stardom will have Pryor well-positioned for a lucrative multi-year deal when he hits the free-agent market this offseason.
Whether his future is in Cleveland or elsewhere, Pryor's continued development will undoubtedly be one of the more intriguing story lines to follow in the seasons ahead.
