Terrelle Pryor is praised by Oakland Raiders' offensive coordinator for his form in pre-season.

Oakland Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson has heaped praise on quarterback Terrelle Pryor for his pre-season performances.

Pryor is battling with Matt Flynn for a starting spot for 2013, but Olson's recent comments have suggested that the former has almost got it wrapped up.

"When you see Terrelle in a game, he just looks faster than the other players on the field," Olson told CBS Sports.

"That's what jumped out at me, and probably jumped out at most people when they watch him play. He can run. He is a tremendous athlete, and he's got the ability to make plays. Right now we're looking for playmakers."

Pryor, who made three appearances last term, will be entering his third season with the Raiders.
