NFL Announces Supplemental Draft Date; Terrelle Pryor Is Eligible

New, comments

We have a date for the 2011 NFL supplemental draft which will go down this Monday, Aug. 22. The league made the announcement this morning after the draft had been delayed from it's original start date on Aug. 17.

The other bit of news the league made this morning was announcing that former Ohio State QB Terrelle Pryor would indeed be eligible for the NFL supplemental draft. There had been some debate surrounding Pryor's eligibility for the draft but, apparently, he's eligible.

The downside for Pryor is that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell ruled that Pryor would not be able to participate in practice or games for the first five weeks of the season. I've never heard of the league doing that so it sounds like a new rule is being implemented here.

Outside of Pryor, the league announced the following players are eligible: Western Carolina DB Torez Jones, Georgia RB Caleb King, Lindenwood DE Keenan Mace, North Carolina DE Mike McAdoo and Northern Illinois DB Tracy Wilson.

So will the Chiefs make a run at Pryor? We discussed this awhile back if you want to hear my opinion on that.
