NFL will hold supplemental draft lottery Sunday

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

A day after Terrelle Pryor showed off for more than half the NFL teams during his Pro Day, the NFL will decide the order for which those squads will bid for his services.

As CBSSports.com’s Rob Rang explains, the NFL will hold a weighted lottery Sunday to determine the order for Monday’s supplemental draft.

Rang writes that unlike April’s draft, which is based solely on win-loss percentage, the supplemental draft places teams into three different categories. Writes Rang: “These groups are determined by the same won/loss percentage, but are thought to take into account the annual fluctuation of talent for clubs that occurs through the draft and free agency each off-season. Therefore, while the Carolina Panthers owned the first pick last year, Ron Rivera's club will be competing with roughly a third of the league for the first pick of each round of the supplemental draft.”

And unlike the April draft where the teams make their selections based on what picks are still left on the board, teams turn in a list in which they inform the league which players they’d pick and which round they’d select him. If a team has the high bid on a player and ultimately drafts him, it will lose the corresponding pick in the April 2012 draft.

There are seven players who are eligible to be selected: Pryor, Western Carolina CB Torez Jones, Georgia RB Caleb King, Lindenwood University/Allen Wranglers (IFL) DE Keenan Mace, North Carolina DE Michael McAdoo and Northern Illinois S Tracy Wilson.

Terrelle Pryor is eligible for the upcoming NFL Supplemental Draft, but is suspended for the first five games of the season. Pete Prisco joins Lauren Shehadi to discuss the latest.
