League says supplemental draft will occur on August 17

Ohio State University quarterback and MVP Terrelle Pryor celebrates after his team defeated the University of Arkansas during the NCAA BCS Allstate Sugar Bowl football game in New Orleans Reuters

The NFL has yet to publicly declare that a supplemental draft will be held in 2011.  Chris Mortensen reports that the league office has informed teams that a supplemental draft will be conducted on August 17.

Per Mort, the NFL has yet to declare any players eligible for the supplemental draft.

That said, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello previously has suggested that there will be a supplemental draft only if there are one or more players eligible for the supplemental draft.  Ergo facto (or something), the scheduling of a supplemental draft means that one or more players will be declared eligible for it.

Former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor thinks it will be him.  “Supplemental Draft August 17th!!” Pryor tweeted, breaking out not one but two exclamation points.

    Cincinnati Fans, welcome your wasted 2012 7th round pick………

  3. goodellflagfootball says: Aug 8, 2011 5:33 PM

    Why would Terrelle Pryor want a pay cut to join the NFL?

  4. coutre says: Aug 8, 2011 5:33 PM

    Maybe Belichek can draft another d-lineman.

    “That said, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello previously has suggested that there will be a supplemental draft only if there are one or more players eligible ”

    Doesn’t this go without saying? Why in the heck would they have a draft if no one was eligible? Duh…

  6. cosanostra71 says: Aug 8, 2011 5:33 PM

    Isn’t Caleb King (former Georgia RB) supposed to be in the supplemental draft after being ruled academically ineligible or something of that nature? So there’s one who is definitely ineligible..

  7. 6ringofsteel says: Aug 8, 2011 5:34 PM

    Pryor mus be hopping to be picked up by yltje steelers so he can feel greatness and see the rings. 6.

  8. georgeanderson2 says: Aug 8, 2011 5:36 PM

    Jeff Ireland is all in, its his last draft with the Dolphins.

  9. kingjoe1 says: Aug 8, 2011 5:38 PM

    Welcome to the 5th round of the draft Terrelle!!

  10. kingjoe1 says: Aug 8, 2011 5:38 PM

    …on second thought, maybe Kyle Shanahan can take him in the first round.

  11. jashfibz says: Aug 8, 2011 5:44 PM

    terrell pryor does not deserve to go the NFL eligible or not. OSU needs a staff change from the inside out because changing his eligibility for him shows there is way more internal concerns than just making a coach take the fall.

  12. wussbasket says: Aug 8, 2011 5:45 PM

    pryor wont be eligible, and even if he is i dont think any team will take a gamble on him considering he wont be able to join a team till after the first pre-season game. hes a raw QB and has way to much to work on, already with no offseason pryor is WAY behind on everyone. I doubt he would even make the team if by somehow he is drafted.

  13. trbowman says: Aug 8, 2011 5:47 PM

    Pryor – out of the league in a year.

  14. tedmurph says: Aug 8, 2011 5:47 PM

    …and once again the drunken ‘lord of the rings’ chimes in.

  15. illwillthemick says: Aug 8, 2011 5:50 PM

    whats he excite about, he will have missed training camp and will not play a down this year more then likley

  16. jetropolitans says: Aug 8, 2011 5:53 PM

    I’d waste a 7th rounder only for that awesome hair. high-and-tight with a little mid-afro swoop.

  17. jetropolitans says: Aug 8, 2011 5:54 PM

    But in all seriousness- are there teams seriously considering him to play QB, or is the plan to put him at TE? seems to me like he wont be that successful at either position

  18. readysethike says: Aug 8, 2011 5:57 PM

    Pryor will be picked up and given the chance.

    If Donte Stallworth who gets injured just as much as Andrew Bynum can still find a job…Pryor will definately get a shot

    besides with Rosenhaus being a Power Agent backing him he’ll definately get drafted.

    Get rid of the supplemental draft and make these guys wait until next year.

    He’d be the best QB in DC

  23. thefoodrapist says: Aug 8, 2011 6:11 PM

    Pryor = more talent than any of you “comedians” on here with your smartass comments (i.e.: “welcome to the 5th round”, “welcome to the 7th round”, “out of the NFL in a year”, etc.)

    Keep hating.

    All of you comedians = not good enough to play in a high school game, let alone the NFL, or college.
    Child, please!

  24. touchdownroddywhite says: Aug 8, 2011 6:16 PM

    How do you have a “draft” with one eligible player? First pick gets to take him or pass and it goes on til somebody picks him or everybody passes?

  25. pthompson1187 says: Aug 8, 2011 6:16 PM

    pryor has athleticism. plain and simple. while not a good QB i say a team take a flyer on him in the low round and persuade him to switch to receiver. if he refuses and flops, well then a late rounder is lost, and many players out of the late rounds flop anyway so its not like itd be a huge negative impact on the next draft.

  26. crise40g says: Aug 8, 2011 6:20 PM

    Pryor sucks!!! No if’s, and’s, or but’s.

  27. mikebyrne1502 says: Aug 8, 2011 6:24 PM

    Buffalo will take him, and does the supplemental work like an auction, do you put your round bid in and can you change it… “I’ll take him for a 7th,”says the Dolphins… “We’ll take him for a 5th..”says the Raiders… “We’ll take him for a first and let him throw to’Buster’ Davis…” Signed the Buffalo Bills.

  28. bhester1906 says: Aug 8, 2011 6:25 PM

    Not ready yet. Sure. But garbage? C’mon people. Pryor could be a decent QB someday

  29. tedmurph says: Aug 8, 2011 6:29 PM

    @foodrapist

    Another OSU fan/alum checks in to defend the illustrious legacy of NFL QB’s:

    Troy Smith, Joe Germaine,Bobby Hoying and who could forget Art Schlichter(bet you haven’t).

    By the way, I was pretty good in high school, but don’t plan to declare.

  30. sooogone says: Aug 8, 2011 6:29 PM

    Maybe it’ll be a draft of nutritional supplements.

    That’s not how it works, and it’s easy enough to look up how it does.

    Assuming he’s eligible (and he should be) Pryor will definitely get drafted, and likely so will former Georgia RB Caleb King.

    Don’t like the guy, but a 5th or 6th round flier is a good risk and besides, if he doesn’t pan out he can always sell his practice and game equipment to make those car payments.

  37. joelvis72 says: Aug 8, 2011 7:07 PM

    I for one am hopping to see the rings. 6

  38. mpg22387 says: Aug 8, 2011 7:11 PM

    Two things:

    1) Per a previous article –
    “If there are no players eligible for a supplemental draft, there is no supplemental draft,” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said. “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 usual examples of such circumstances would be academic ineligibility, getting kicked off a team or graduating and deciding to leave school. Pryor does not qualify on any of those fronts as he was suspended, not ineligible, for part of the 2011 season.

    2) IF Pryor is drafted it is not a big deal. Just like Cam Newton, when he decides to run, Clay Matthews will make him pay. Do we remember what happened to Kolb…

    The NFL is not for running QB’s. Vick has a cannon and he emphasizes that as his strength, that is why he is good. Pryor will be the next Jamarcus Russel or Vince Young.

    Pryor’s agent tweeted that. There’s no way Pryor can spell anything even close to “supplemental.”

    Seriously, quitting school doesn’t make you eligible for the supplemental draft. This guy’s college career is one retarded decision after another.

    Jamarcus Russel was not a running quarterback. Way to label every black QB a “running QB.”

    akismet-0471142e4db6bf4edbfd8363d280b966 Seriously, quitting school doesn’t make you eligible for the supplemental draft.

    Ohio State has provided Pryor with written documentation that he was permanently ineligible to ever play football there again. Ergo, he meets the NFL’s criteria for their supplemental draft.

  46. db3300 says: Aug 8, 2011 7:40 PM

    “Don’t like the guy, but a 5th or 6th round flier is a good risk…”

    A “flier” is never a 5th round pick and I’ve only heard it used referring to a 7th rounder. A 5th round pick is someone you’re hoping becomes a solid player by their 2nd or 3rd year and not some guy you aren’t going to lose any sleep over if he doesn’t work out.

    No, you can’t create a list like that for pos @ any college. My list was OSU’s all-time BEST NFL QBs, not the worst. Not many major colleges could match that.

    I did leave out Tom Tupa. He had a couple good yrs for the Pats…as a punter

  51. mpg22387 says: Aug 8, 2011 8:03 PM

    @ferrotsoftly

    Way to only look at color. I actually had to go back up and look at my post to realize that the quarterbacks I identified were actually black. I identified them because they were ineffective as NFL quarterbacks, not because they were black. I guess I could have said Ryan Leaf, but he was done before he started.

    You said “The NFL is not for running QB’s. Vick has a cannon and he emphasizes that as his strength, that is why he is good. Pryor will be the next Jamarcus Russel or Vince Young.”

    You were calling Russel a running QB.

    Is your point that since Ohio State hasn’t produced top NFL QBs that Pryor is doomed to fail?

    That doesn’t make sense. Tennessee didn’t have a top NFL QB before Peyton Manning. Ditto Virginia Tech / Michael Vick, Oklahoma / Sam Bradford, Virginia / Matt Schaub, North Carolina State / Philip Rivers, Vanderbilt / Jay Cutler…need I go on?

  55. christopher525 says: Aug 8, 2011 8:41 PM

    @mpg, you said it’s not for RUNNING QB’s, not “ineffective.” Then listed 2 black QB’s, certainly looks like stereotyping to me. Steve Young was a “running QB,” I’d say things worked pretty well for him.

  56. descendency says: Aug 8, 2011 8:48 PM

    Gosh I really hope my steelers pick him up!! He would fit right in with the wife beater, drunkdriver, sexual deviant, etc. plus he is form PA. I think it wouldbe a great fit, plus I really don’t woant the Browns to get him, they are lliking really tough as of late with all the young studs they got. I’m thinking about trading in my Big Ben #7 jersey for a COlt Mccoy one. Girls just laugh at me and run when I wear my #7 to Wal Mart On Fridays ,when I go there to meet some girls. Go T.P. p;eeze come to my steelers I want another ring sooo bad I get aroused just thinking about it. WOO HOO HERE WE GO STEELERS HER WE GO WOOT WOOT!!

  64. drexelvol says: Aug 9, 2011 9:57 AM

    @touchdownroddywhite – The supplemental draft works pretty like the regular draft. Every team gets an opportunity pick a player in round 1 thru round 7. If a team takes a player in any round of the supplemental draft, they lose that draft pick in the next year’s regular draft.

    So, no one is going to touch Pryor until a very late round. However, first one that picks him, get’s him.
