Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting via Twitter that embattled former Ohio State QB Terrelle Pryor will be eligible for the NFL Supplemental Draft.
There was some question as to whether or not Pryor would be eligible. The rules for player eligibility are somewhat unclear.
Schefter notes that Pryor will be ineligible to practice or play in the first five regular season games if he is signed.
It is doubtful Pryor would play in the first five games anyway but why limit him from practicing? Roger Goodell is taking this too far. If the man is eligible to join the league he should be eligible to work in the league whenever the team that signs him sees fit.
Regardless, it looks like Pryor will get his NFL shot. Most experts I’ve heard weigh in don’t think Pryor has the mechanics to be a starting level NFL QB. After watching him in college, however, I think he certainly has pro-level athleticism. He can certainly make an impact on NFL games if used properly.
What do you think Addicts? The Chiefs obviously have themselves a QB. Might they consider throwing a late round pick at Pryor as athlete?
The supplemental draft rescheduled for Monday, August 22.
