QB Terrelle Pryor Not (Yet) Eligible For 2011 NFL Supplemental Draft

We've got some potentially bad news for former Ohio State QB Terrelle Pryor: As of now, he's not eligible for the 2011 NFL supplemental draft. NFL Network's Jason La Canfora reports the league sent out a memo to all teams announcing the names of the players eligible for the supplemental draft and Pryor's name was not included.

Georgia RB Caleb King, the other known supplemental draft applicant, is included in the draft, which is scheduled for Aug. 17.

It's unclear if the league is still reviewing Pryor's status or if this indicates he won't be eligible. The supplemental draft, as the league has said, is supposed to be for players who have some sort of unforeseen circumstance (like being kicked off the team or academically ineligible) and not a mechanism for bypassing the draft. Whether Pryor falls into that category is apparently the debate.

If he is indeed ineligible for the supplemental draft, then he won't get his NFL opportunity until the 2012 NFL draft, which would be devastating to his NFL future. He could, however, choose the UFL or CFL in the meantime, which might be his best option at this point.

After the league announced a date for the supplemental draft, Pryor reportedly set up a workout for teams this Friday. We'll see if that workout happens now.
