Terrelle Pryor To Supplemental Draft?

By: Mike Vukovcan

Pittsburgh (KDKA)- Now that it’s becoming more and more unlikely that Terrelle Pryor will play again for Ohio State, will he consider the NFL Supplemental Draft?

Since he’s already suspended for the first five games of the 2011 season and is now being heavily investigated by the NCAA for rule violations, what’s the future hold for Pryor?

Len Pasquarelli of The Sports Xchange is reporting that both college and NFL sources are telling him that Pryor could petition the NFL for inclusion in this summer’s supplemental draft.

The report says that four of Pryor’s teammates are also seriously considering leaving (offensive tackle Mike Adams, tailback Dan Herron, wide receiver DeVier Posey and defensive end Solomon Thomas).

Many scouts believe that Adams and Herron are better NFL prospects than Pryor. In my opinion, Pryor is still a below average passer and succeeds primarily because he can run. That might work at Ohio State, it won’t work in the NFL (ask Vince Young).

Pasquarelli says that Pryor is currently a Top 100 prospect by NFLDraftScout.com and the fourth-rated senior quarterback, behind Arizona’s Nick Foles, Ryan Tennehill from Texas A&M and San Diego State’s Ryan Lindley. Stanford’s Andrew Luck, USC’s Matt Barkley and Oklahoma’s Laundry Jones are also expected to enter the 2012 NFL Draft.

The date for the NFL supplemental draft has not been determined. It’s usually held in July.

    What a piece of garbage. Talk about an inflated ego. When he flames out next year and is playing for the Pittsburgh power, what else do you think this moron is going to sell to make a quick buck. If he spent more time in the weight room and film room maybe he could have made a decent living as a back up. What a waste of talent. Supplemental draft? Who picks him? That’s insanity, he may sign on with some team to serve as a practice squad qb. Arena football here comes Pryor .

    Ok Brad you need to check your facts. If you want to slam the kid for not living up to the hype or making bad decesions due to ego that’s fine and warrented. However, don’t question the kids work ethic when you have no idea! The fact is if you speak to anyone that has coached or played with Terrelle they will tell you that he works very hard in the weight room and in film study. The kids has made mistakes for sure but he has been and always will be a hard worker. Does that make him a great player, no. But for you who knows nothing personally about it to rip it is not right.

    Actually Tim I do know for a fact he is lazy. He doesn’t study as much as he should an is too busy trying to market himself around campus. The dude thinks he has already made it. He can’t read a defense. If he can’t read a big ten defense or Youngstown state, There is definitely a problem with him studying. He only does what is required of him, nothing more. The best qb’s don’t have time to get more tattoos or new 350z’s yearly. They are in the film room.

    So you are in the meetings? So your his friend?

  • tim

    More on your point Brad. Big Ben won 2 super bowls but he sure had a lot of time for other things. If you want to bash the kid for decesions fine. If you want to say he’s not a quarterback fine. But when you don’t know him personally or know the time and effort he puts in you shouldn’t judge.

  • tim

    You know what else. The same people who call the guy a piece of garbage have never been in his situation and never will be. When your 17 and you have he world thrown at you when you grew up with nothing it can easily change someone. For people to say “no i wouldn’t be like that” is a joke because you never know what you would be like in any situation until your put in it.
