The NFL supplemental draft has been postponed. It was originally scheduled for Wednesday, and its new date is unknown at this time.
ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the news, as the NFL told all 32 teams of the change.
The likely reason for the postponement is that it gives the league more time to decide whether or not former Ohio State QB Terrelle Pryor should be deemed eligible. Pryor decided to leave school, with his sights set on the NFL, but he has not been declared eligible for the supplemental draft, yet.
The following players are eligible for the supplemental draft, whenever it takes place: Georgia RB Caleb King, Northern Illinois S Tracy Wilson, Lindenwood DE Keenan Mace, Western Carolina DB Torez Jones and North Carolina DE Mike McAdoo.
If Pryor is allowed into the draft, he is expected to warrant a fourth-round pick from a team that is interested in him.
The digital edition of Pro Football Weekly's 2011 NFL preview magazine is now available in The PFW Store. This product was completed after the lockout ended and free-agent signings and player trades are reflected in the 32 team previews.
