The 32 teams of the NFL are preparing for the supplemental draft which is scheduled for Wednesday, and an approved list has been drawn up. However, former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor has not yet been placed on the approved list.
According to AP, one NFL official, who wished to remain anonymous, has reported that four players so far have been listed as eligible. The league does not want to make an official announcement on the draft until after Wednesday.
Reports have indicated that the four eligible players are running back Caleb King, former Northern Illinois safety Tracy Wilson, cornerback Torez Jones and former Lindenwood University defensive end Keenan Mace.
It is believed that the league could still add to the eligibility list before Wednesday.
Drew Rosenhaus, Pryor’s agent, tweeted earlier this week that he had been told by the NFL that “no decision has yet been made on Terrelle’s eligibility for the supplemental draft.”
Pryor was one of the Buckeyes’ star players for three years, but was suspended at the beginning of the 2011 season for accepting improper benefits from a tattoo parlor.
He was expected to be entered for the supplemental draft, however, if he is excluded from Wednesday’s draft he will have to wait until April 2012 to participate.
The supplemental draft admits qualified underclassmen who did not make earlier requests for entry into the regular draft to potentially enter the NFL.
