Though he has yet to be declared eligible for the August 17 supplemental draft, former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor plans to work out for scouts on Friday, August 12, according to Len Pasquarelli of The Sports Xchange.
Pryor will engage in the Pro Day workout at an undisclosed location in Pittsburgh.
There’s still no guarantee that Pryor will be included in the pool of eligible picks. As Pasquarelli reports, former Georgia tailback Caleb King also has applied for the supplemental draft. Given that King has flunked out of school, his path to the supplemental draft is more clear.
Thus, it remains possible that King will get in, and that Pryor will be left out.
There’s a school of thought in league circles that the NFL will find a way to exclude Pryor, ostensibly to ensure that players can’t render themselves ineligible for college (and thus eligible for the supplemental draft) at will but as a practical matter to please the keepers of the NFL’s free farm system.
