NFL's supplemental draft set for Aug. 17

While former Ohio State QB Terrelle Pryor continues to wait and wonder whether he is eligible for the NFL supplemental draft or if he’ll have to spend this season playing in Canada or the UFL, the NFL is going forward with its plans to hold the draft. It’s just that the league hasn’t announced who actually can participate.

According to CBSSports.com’s Rob Rang, the NFL has told all 32 teams that the draft will be held Aug. 17. Thing is, none of the teams were told which players were eligible (aside from Pryor, there’s also the possibility of Georgia RB Caleb King and UNC DE Michael McAdoo) or what order the teams will draft.

As we wrote a couple weeks ago, nobody seems quite sure about Pryor’s standing because of the way he left Ohio State. Normally, the supplemental draft is for those players who were ruled academically ineligible or kicked off their college team or who left the team after he graduated -- basically, it’s the whole “unforeseen changes in a player’s circumstances” deal.

Pryor could have declared for April’s draft, but instead, he decided to accept a five-game suspension for the 2011 season. But after coach Jim Tressel was fired, Pryor changed his mind and decided to leave the team.

Whether that’s enough of a reason for the NFL to allow him into the supplemental draft remains to be seen. But at least we have a drop-dead date for when we’ll find out.

While Pryor was a good quarterback in college, he will be a complete bust in the NFL!

Pryor and Cam Newton both will be out of the league within the next 3-4 years!

I think a more defining and appropriate name for this draft would be let's reward guys who behaved badly with NFL contracts.  Terelle Pryor had ample time to declare for the regular draft and decided to come back and make things right at OSU, well do that or stay in school and we'll see you in the next draft.
