Supplemental draft starts at 1:00 p.m. ET

The 2011 supplemental draft gets started at 1:00 p.m. ET on Monday.  As recently explained — and contrary to several reporters and websites that simply don’t have their facts straight — the order isn’t determined based simply on last year’s won-loss record.

It’s a weighted lottery, with “dibs” for the worst six teams sorted out first, then the next 14, then the 12 playoffs teams.  Last year, for example, the Browns had the top position in the supplemental draft, even though the Rams had first pick in the April draft.

To expedite the process, teams have a window at the start of each round to submit the name of a player, if any, they’d like to take.  The player is then awarded to the team with the highest position in the round who claimed him.  Any pick used by a team in the 2011 supplemental draft is forfeited in the 2012 draft.

Look for the news of the outcome of each round to emerge via Twitter.  We’ll also post it right here.

Six players are in the pool.  The star of the show will be former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor.  The only questions are by whom and in which round.

  1. The entire draft is done via email, and lasts approximately 10 minutes. Just post the results ~ thanks.

  2. I think that wouldn’t be a bad idea, sprtsninja. Don’t forget, the Bills lost 2 starters from a season ago to FA, so they will most definetly be getting Comp. picks. So I wouldn’t mind seeing them throw a 4th or even a 3rd, to get Pryor.

  3. Any team that really wants him better consider a pretty high pick. I would think a lot of teams, even ones with no QB needs would risk a forth on such and athlete.

  4. Mike Holmgren’s cousin Charlie told me the Browns will burn a 2nd rounder on him. They plan on using him for special packages, then plan on developing him for 2 years to play QB or for future trade bait. go Browns.

  5. Someone set up a lottery board.

    Put Hobart down for Pryor in round 2.

    I’m in…..5th Round here. For extra credit….to the Browns.

  6. Dolphins won’t use higher than a fourth or fifth ant Pryor will be gone before that. I’m guessing some desperate team will use a third. Will be a complete wasted pick regardless.

  7. Bengals need him….Our QB situation is abysmal. Dalton looked poised against the first stringers, drove right down on them and scored….looked good…you will never hear it because of stigma with the team…and plus it was the Jets….and we all know the correlation with the Jets and the media…hmmm I wonder what it could be…probably will sensor this anyway….PFT….

  8. I am so pissed that I don’t get to see Pryor in the green room at Radio City falling to the 6th round next April.

  9. Miami, Oakland, or Buffalo. Nobody else will spend more than a 5th rounder. One of them will bid a 3rd, the others will take their chances with a 4th and miss out. Denver may be a dark horse, though.

  10. The Bills aren’t taking Pryor, why would they? They have three QB’s already, no place to put him. If the Bills take anyone it’ll be that pass rusher from UNC.

    I expect a team like the Raiders to take Pryor, if not them then a team like the Colts or Ravens, teams that have no viable back-up and can afford to wait for Pryor.

  11. Pryor – I think the Skins and Oakland it comes down to. Both organizations would make the move (probably both foolish enough to overspend draft pick wise), and both systems he fits as a QB (mobility/athletic ability)…plus both don’t have a franchise QB.

    end of the day, whomever drafts him I think over shoots to ensure they get him…I’m going to bet someone who has him graded as a 1st round prospect throws out their 2nd rounder in 2012. One or 2 teams will throw out a 3rd thinking thats high enough to get him and a few teams will toss out 4th/5th rounders.

    the sleeper team i’ve been thinking about is the Jets. possibly help fill the void left by Brad Smith?

    Caleb King – to detroit lions for a 6th rounder.

  12. Eh, add Buffalo to the mix. I could see them trying for a 3rd because of that 4th they got for Evans, as many of you pointed out.

    I think a 3rd round pick gets him, though. If Oakland had a 2nd going into the 2012 Draft, then, well… that might change things a bit. lol

  13. Pryor isnt even close to the best player available in this supplemental draft

    Michael Floyd would be a top 20 pick necx year, so would Dan Heron. Devier Posey would be a 3rd -4th round pick and Mike Aadams would be in the 2nd round or better. It is crazy that they don’t even mention these names. This is one of the deepest supplemental drafts ever.

  14. I was hoping the Cards would pick up Caleb King to replace the hole created by the trade of Tim Hightower and the injury to Ryan Williams. Then I watched his “highlight” film. He’s a terrible pass protector, doesn’t run that hard, runs very upright, not much of a top gear, and has skinny calves (which means he’s going to be prone to lower leg injuries in the pros). I don’t think any team is going to use a pick on him after watching his film. He was a very mediocre SEC back. Undrafted FA at best.

  15. …so excited to see the dynamic tandem of Pryor and Darrius Heyward-Bey at split end for the Silver and Black. Not.

    ——————————–

    NONE of those players you mentioned are in the Supplemental draft

  17. The Raiders i guess the only qualification you need is to run in the 4.2-4.4 range and you are a Raider guaranteed.

    nope, you are off here. Pryor WAS the best player in this Supplemental Draft. Michael Floyd stayed in school, same with Heron and Posey. the big players that i heard were Caleb King and McAdoo and Pryor.
