NFL supplemental draft postpones

The NFL supplemental draft (Football Betting)which is scheduled for Wednesday has been postponed.

NFL spokesman Michael Signora confirmed that the draft will not be held as for the plan as the teams have been told a new date has not yet been set. His statement never come across that former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor would be available for selection.

Pryor was looking for a meet with Commissioner Roger Goodell to make a case for being declared eligible, Goodell was reviewing the facts of Pryor's case.

The rules that govern eligibility for the supplemental draft state is that, a player's petition for special eligibility must be approved by the League office and his name circulated to franchise.

When Pryor announced his exit from Ohio State, he has already been suspended by the school and the NCAA for the first five games. Otherwise he would have been a senior player for this season this fall; he was dismissed on accepting improper benefits.

David Cornwell, Pryor's attorney, told that Pryor admitted his mentor, Ted Sarniak, gave him and his mother cash and helped with car payments. Ohio State is still under NCAA investigation.

After a 2008 NCAA investigation into Pryor's recruitment, Sarniak, a family friend, was told he could no longer give Pryor money or gifts. Cornwell said he believes the violation makes Pryor eligible for the NFL's supplemental draft, since it would have affected Pryor's 2011 eligibility.

Pryor is Ohio State's all-time leading rusher among quarterbacks, with 2,164 yards. He also threw 57 touchdown passes, tying a school record.
