The pressure on highly touted freshman running back Isaiah Crowell this season at Georgia increased with the announcement that Caleb King would be academically ineligible to play in 2011. Recent reports would suggest that King does not plan on suiting up in a Bulldogs uniform again, and will be testing the (supplemental) draft waters.
Seth Emerson, of the Macon Telegraph, reported on Sunday that a source close to King has said the to-be senior has decided to enter the NFL supplemental draft. The date of the supplemental draft has not been announced yet due to the lockout, though league officials have confirmed the event will take place. King will join former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor in the group of players hoping to become a late addition to an NFL roster.
If a team selects a player in the supplemental draft, they will forfeit their selection in that round of the following year's draft. Instead of the usual draft order, teams are grouped by win total and a franchise may submit a bid on what round they would be willing to pick a certain player. NFL teams will have to decide first if they want to add Pryor or King, and then at what cost.
