Former OSU QB Pryor Says He’s Entering the NFL Supplemental Draft

In what was the worlds worst kept secret, former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor announced at his press conference in Miami today that he will enter the NFL supplemental draft.

“Terrelle Pryor will be a great — not a good quarterback — a great quarterback in the National Football League,” his new agent Drew Rosenhaus said. “He is going to be a star. This experience that he has gone through will galvanize him and make him a better person, a stronger person.”

Agent Drew Rosenhaus said he expects Pryor to go in the first round of the Supplemental Draft, something that most NFL GM’s don’t seem to agree with.

Pryor did say he was sorry to his former school – Ohio State – over all the things that he was involved with that eventually led to coach Jim Tressel stepping down.

“I say sorry to all the Buckeye nation and all the Buckeye fans across the country,” Pryor said. “I never meant to hurt anybody directly or indirectly with my conduct off the field and I am truly sorry.”

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reiterated that Pryor is seen as no more than a mid-round pick and several GM’s told Mortensen that they want to be sure Pryor is willing to consider a move to a “Jermichael Finley-type” of tight end down the line if they’re going to use a supplemental pick this year.
