Pryor in supplemental draft
Posted Aug. 18 at 12:13 AM
The Terrelle Pryor saga is over, and the Ohio State quarterback has been declared eligible for the NFL's supplemental draft. He'll get a penalty for his missteps in college, but it's not a significant one.
According to this story from ESPN, Pryor can be selected in the supplemental draft, but will not be eligible to play in the first five games of the season. It's not a big deal because the idea that Pryor could join a team in late August and make a meaningful contribution in September is unrealistic anyway.
The supplemental draft will take place next Monday, August 22nd. Pryor is the most interesting and likely to be drafted prospect, having thrown 57 TD passes and also rushed for more than 2,000 yards in college. That dual-threat skillset makes him a somewhat intriguing fantasy prospect, although there are some doubts as to whether he'll be a successful NFL quarterback -- as a passer, anyway.
It's likely that someone will roll the dice with him. It's easy to connect the dots to teams with needs; Miami, Oakland. Next Monday, we'll know for sure.
