The beginning of the 2011 season looms on the horizon, and for a few as-yet-drafted folks, so does the August 17 NFL supplemental draft. One of those folks is Terrelle Pryor, whose status for said draft is still up in the air.

To clear the air, Pryor is reportedly seeking to meet with Commissioner Roger Goodell on either Monday or Tuesday and determine exactly where he stands with the NFL. That's according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, who also reports that Pryor has apparently "already shown that it was inevitable he was going to get kicked out of Ohio State."

This is important because the NFL's basis for keeping Pryor out currently revolves around his simply leaving school and hiring an agent. PFT also obtained a statement from Pryor's attorney, David Cornwell, in which Pryor's representation sounds confident that he'll end up eligible for the draft.

"We have been in discussions with the Commissioner’s office over the past week to address the NFL's concerns," Cornwell wrote. "I am confident that once the NFL has a full understanding of the facts, Terrelle will be part of Wednesday’s supplemental draft."

The supplemental draft is this Wednesday, which leaves very little time for Pryor to get approved by the NFL and then hold a pro day. Previously it was believed that at least three teams were interested in checking out what the former Buckeye had to offer, but because of Pryor's status, he had to postpone his earlier scheduled pro day.

Even without a pro day, though, someone will, we'd think, take a flier on Pryor anyway, simply based on his talent alone. Especially if it only cost them a sixth-round pick in 2012.

Pryor to meet with Goodell, confident in status?

What a sham.  His removal from the Football Team  AFTER he left school and hired an agent was nothing more than Ohio State ("THE" ommitted intentionally) pandering to this lying cheat, in yet another attempt to take care of one of those that took down their football program.  The NFL needs to see though the whole thing and keep him ineligible.  See you in Canada, chump.
