Caleb King opts for supplemental draft

Terrelle Pryor finally has gotten some company.

With Georgia running back Caleb King declared academically ineligible for the 2011 season, King has opted to enter the NFL’s supplemental draft, according to the Macon Telegraph, via CFT.

It’s still not known when the supplemental draft will be conducted, or even if a supplemental draft will be conducted.

King has been the Bulldogs’ second-leading rusher for each of the past three seasons, playing second fiddle to the likes of Knowshon Moreno and Washaun Ealey.  King likely would have backed-up five-star recruit Isaiah Crowell in 2011.

  1. The sad truth is, with Mark Richt’s penchant for wasting elite talent, he’ll be the next Jim Brown.

  2. I have only seen this mentioned one other place, but is it true that if the supplemental draft rules remain the same as before, Terrelle Pryor is not eligible for the supplemental draft because of how he left The Ohio State?

  3. I’m in college and I don’t think it’s THAT hard that I wouldn’t be able to meet academic requirements. And I’m not even in a “gimme” joke major like these guys are, getting personal tutoring sesssions every other day!

    C’mon, man!

  4. hahahaha. yeah caleb king. the nfl teams are just lining up for you. just another greedy player who couldnt keep his end of a deal with the school. so why would an nfl team want this smart guy? its not like hes a sociology major like mike vick.

  5. The guy is older than Matt Stafford and Josh Freeman and just flunked out. When did he start school, at 9?
