NFL Supplemental Draft: Terrelle Pryor Selected By Raiders

In what is perhaps the least surprising news you will read all day, the Oakland Raiders selected former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor in the 2011 NFL Supplemental Draft. The Raiders used a third-round pick -- yes, a third-round pick -- on Pryor, who will be suspended for the first five weeks of the 2011 season.

Pryor was the only player selected in the Supplemental Draft. This means running back Caleb King (Georgia), defensive end Keenan Mace (Lindenwood), defensive end Mike McAdoo (North Carolina), defensive back Torez Jones (Western Carolina) and defensive back Tracy Wilson (Northern Illinois) are free agents who can be signed by any team.

Obviously the player to watch on that list is King. The Lions reportedly showed interest in King prior to the Supplemental Draft, which isn't too surprising considering the situation at running back isn't great right now. It would not surprise me if the Lions sign King and give him a look in the final two weeks of the preseason. There's really nothing to lose by bringing him in since the Lions won't have to spend a future draft pick to acquire his services.
