Apparently there is some speculation around Fox Sports that even if there is a supplemental NFL draft, our buddy TP might not meet requirements.
“If there are no players eligible for a supplemental draft, there is no supplemental draft,” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello wrote in an email to FOXSports.com on Sunday. “It is for players whose circumstances have changed in an unforeseen way after the regular (college) draft. It is not a mechanism for simply bypassing the regular (draft).”
Aiello cited examples of “unforeseen” changes as players who were kicked off their college teams, declared academically ineligible or graduated and then decided to leave school. Pryor doesn’t qualify on any of those fronts.
These situations are decided on a case by case basis, and I personally have trouble believing that he would be denied, but I hope he didn't already throw away the phone number for the Seskatchewan Roughriders.
