Terrelle Pryor was recently allowed to participate in the upcoming 2011 NFL Supplemental Draft. His NCAA violations put his NFL eligibility at risk. This forced him to either accept his NCAA five-game suspension at OSU, enter the Supplemental Draft, or sit out the 2011 season and enter the regular draft in April, 2012. When Pryor hired an agent, he immediately became ineligible to serve the five-game suspension at OSU, waived his right to that option … leaving two choices (2011 NFL Supplemental Draft or the 2012 regular NFL Draft). The NFL postponed the 2011 Supplemental Draft to address Pryor’s situation. A compromised was reached between the NFL and the NFLPA, in order to prevent future NCAA violators from entering the NFL to avoid NCAA punishment. NFLPA representatives have expressed concerns about retroactive punishments, how will the compromise affect NCAA players currently under violation investigation, and if existing players would be subject to punishment.
