Supplemental Draft Rescheduled for Monday August 22…Pryor In

The Supplemental Draft, originally scheduled for August 17, has been rescheduled for Monday, August 22 at 1:00 p.m. ET.

The following six players have been declared eligible for selection in the Supplemental Draft:

Torez Jones DB Western Carolina, Caleb King RB Georgia, Keenan Mace DE Lindenwood, Mike McAdoo DE North Carolina, Terrelle Pryor QB Ohio State, Tracy Wilson DB Northern Illinois.

No other applications for the Supplemental Draft will be accepted.

In addition to being notified that Terrelle Pryor may be selected in the Supplemental Draft, NFL clubs were informed that Pryor made decisions that undermine the integrity of the eligibility rules for the NFL Draft. Those actions included failing to cooperate with the NCAA and hiring an agent in violation of NCAA rules. This resulted in Ohio State declaring him ineligible to continue playing college football. Pryor then applied to enter the NFL after the regular draft. Pryor had accepted at the end of the 2010 college football season a suspension for the first five games of the 2011 season for violating NCAA rules.

In his decision allowing Pryor to enter the Supplemental Draft, Commissioner Roger Goodell determined that Pryor will be ineligible to practice prior to or play in the first five games of the NFL regular season after he signs. Pryor may be selected in the Supplemental Draft, negotiate and sign a contract with an NFL club, and fully participate in the remainder of the preseason.

Compliments of the NFL
