Lions Reportedly Plan To Attend Terrelle Pryor's Pro Day (If There Is One)

The NFL supplemental draft is scheduled to be held on Aug. 17, but right now it's not clear if former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor will be one of the players eligible to be picked. He was not included on the initial list of eligible players, but Drew Rosenhaus, his agent, says no final decision has been made yet by the NFL about Pryor's status for the draft.

Originally Pryor was going to hold his pro day on Friday, but Adam Schefter reports that the workout is on hold while the NFL figures out if he is eligible or not.

If Pryor is ultimately declared eligible and has a pro day, Mike O'Hara reports that the Detroit Lions plan to attend it. This obviously doesn't necessarily mean they will be impressed enough to consider submitting a pick for him in the supplemental draft, though. It's likely a case of them planning to do their due diligence more than anything, as O'Hara pointed out.

But no one should jump to any conclusions about the Lions’ level of interest in Pryor as a quarterback or any other position should he decide to switch. NFL teams routinely scout all prospects to evaluate their skill level.

Personally I have no interest in the Lions even wasting their time thinking about Pryor for on and off the field reasons. Then again, it's tough for me to be unbiased when it comes to him, so I will just leave it at that.
