Former OSU QB Pryor Ineligible for NFL Supplemental Draft?


The NFL has yet to schedule a supplemental draft for the 2011 season but Terrelle Pryor might not qualify if there is one according to Alex Marvez of FOXSports.com.

“If there are no players eligible for a supplemental draft, there is no supplemental draft,” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello wrote in an email on Sunday. “It is for players whose circumstances have changed in an unforeseen way after the regular (college) draft. It is not a mechanism for simply bypassing the regular (draft).”

The supplemental draft is for “unforeseen” changes such as players who were kicked off their college teams, declared academically ineligible or graduated and then decided to leave school. Pryor doesn’t qualify on any of those fronts.

Pryor’s status for the supplemental draft will be determined by Joel Bussert, the league’s vice president of player personnel/football operations. Aiello said such eligibility is determined on a case-by-case basis.
