QB Terrelle Pryor entered the Ohio State football program as one of the top-ranked players in the country but he'll leave as a low-end NFL draft pick, according to the scouting service National. Pryor received a 5.1 grade which translates to a sixth or seventh round draft pick, according to a report from National Football Post.
The former Ohio State QB is expected to be picked in the middle rounds in next month's supplemental draft. Pryor announced two weeks ago he was leaving Ohio State and later announced he would be entering the NFL supplemental draft in July.
A 9.0 grade is given to the very best draft picks while a 1.0 grade translates to someone with no future in professional football. A 7.0 is considered a first round pick while a 6.0 is someone in the top three rounds.
Despite the grades from the scouting services, NFL Network's Mike Mayock recently predicted he would be a fourth round pick. Pryor's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said publicly Pryor should be a first round pick. It's unclear which teams, if any, are interested in his services.
It's also unclear if there will even be a supplemental draft. The league has said they could conduct one while the NFLPA hasn't taken a position. Hopefully the NFL lockout is solved by then and this isn't a debate.
