Yesterday, Joe Schad of ESPN Tweeted that former Ohio State University quarterback Terrelle Pryor chose Drew Rosenhaus as his agent. After doing some of my own research on Twitter, I found that Rosenhaus was spotted having dinner with Pryor in Aventura, Florida one day prior to the announcement.
Pryor is hoping that Rosenhaus will be able to position him to be taken as high as possible in the NFL Supplemental Draft. There is one big thing standing in Pryor’s way, though – there may not be an NFL Supplemental Draft this year.
There is a lot of uncertainly on this front based on the current NFL Lockout and labor negotiations, while everyone waits on a response from the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals post-oral arguments. If there is a Supplemental Draft, it will likely occur in mid-to-late July. Based on this article from ESPN, there will be a Supplemental Draft now that Pryor has announced his intention to apply for it.
The team that selects Pryor will have to give up its corresponding round draft pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.
