Terrelle Pryor still not in supplemental draft

As the fine gentlemen at Eye On Football reported Sunday evening, Former Ohio State QB Terrelle Pryor's status for the 2011 NFL supplemental draft is still in limbo, and he's still trying to meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and get a definitive answer. The supplemental draft is scheduled for Wednesday, August 17, so there's clearly not a whole lot of time to be wasted here.

According to NFL rules, Pryor wouldn't be eligible for the supplemental draft unless he was kicked out of school or ruled academically ineligible. Pryor was indeed ruled permanently ineligible by Ohio State for not complying with the NCAA investigation he was involved in, so one would think that's enough to satisfy the NFL's requirements.

Now, it's plenty obvious that Pryor belongs in the NFL as soon as possible. He is clearly not going to be a member of Ohio State's football team ever again, we're already almost halfway through the CFL's 2011 season, and let's not even entertain the idea of "Terrelle Pryor, UFL rookie." However, if for whatever reason, Goodell decides that Pryor's circumstances aren't currently worthy of NFL supplemental draft inclusion, we may get the first instance in NCAA history where a student-athlete petitions to have his previous semester's grades lowered. "No no, you've got to give me an F instead of a C! I promise I cheated! Please believe me!"

But seriously. Let's let Terrelle Pryor in the NFL already, Mr. Goodell.

Terrelle Pryor still not in supplemental draft

Goodell better not make him eligible, or it provides a clear path to any student-athlete who wants to circumvent the regular draft in the future. He quit college football and retained an agent, and only got OSU to ban him AFTER he realized that he wasn't going to be eligible for the supplemental draft.. It doesn't work that way. And it's not "obvious that Pryor belongs in the NFL as soon as possible"..he's an average quarterback that royally screwed over the university that gave him a free education and a step up to making millions of dollars each year, once he gets into the NFL. Nobody needs to be going out of their way or making exceptions for a guy like this with character issues like these. He needs a timeout in Canada to think about his actions and the consequences.

Terrelle Pryor still not in supplemental draft

Pryor has shown that he has the skillset desired in the current NFL....that is running QBs that can also throw

lumpoco, I do not know what Pryor you watched in college.  He ran well but he had poor accuracy, especially when he had to throw from the pocket.  And you said he can throw short accurate throws, but that was about it.  He did not have a great arm and his accuracy was not great besides short throws.  I also saw a QB who was good against inferior teams but when he played teams who were as good or better like Wisconsin, he struggled.  Daunte Culpepper was once a sought after QB.  Can't believe he is in the same sentence as Russell.  At one time, he was considered a franchise and one of the best QB's in the game.  He had a bad knee injury and was never the same.  He has good size, but is very immature and will get eaten up at this level because of it and carries a ton of baggage with him.  Also, if he couldn't play well against elite competition, there is no way he will be able to be a strong NFL QB.  He is a major work in progress, even more so than Tebow and Newton.  At least they both won national titles, as well as Vince Young.  He would be good on special teams with his speed and has the size to become a tight end if he builds muscle, but l did not see enough that makes me think he can be a star.  It took prison for Vick to realize he needed to change his play and become more of a pocket passer.  But the difference is Vick was a much better college QB and had a much better arm.  There are way too many questions with this kid for me to believe he is star quality.

Terrelle Pryor still not in supplemental draft

First Daunte Culpepper, then most likely JaMarcus Russell. I would rather Harbaugh take a chance on Pryor. He has the right size to be a successful QB in the NFL. I don't care what other people might think, but there is no way a 260 pound slow moving QB can succeed in an NFL offense that is predicated on making short accurate throws and having the ability to scramble if warranted. Pryor has shown that he has the skillset desired in the current NFL....that is running QBs that can also throw. Michael Vick and Vince Young are very popular/sought after because of those qualities. Daunte Culpepper, JaMarcus Russell and Jared Lorenzen are not highly sought after for the very same reasons.
