THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH
Former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor's eligibility for the NFL supplemental draft might be in doubt as the league continues to review the player's application. But Pryor's unique circumstances at OSU should quell all questions surrounding his eligibility, according to his attorney, Larry James.
James said the quarterback should be allowed to enter the supplemental draft because an NCAA investigation - completed after the Jan. 15 deadline for underclassmen to declare for the annual NFL draft - determined that he would not have been allowed to play in any games in the 2011 season.
"There was just no way that the circumstances with the review would have allowed him to compete in the games past the five he was already suspended," James said. "When (Pryor) signed with an agent, that was a straight-up sign, not to avoid the original draft," James said. "That is simply not the case."
