NFL Supplemental Draft 2011 Postponed

NFL Supplemental Draft Postponed

Photo – QB Terrelle Pryor – Ohio St.

The NFL postponed the NFL Supplemental Draft scheduled for Wednesday August 17th. The delay stems from league officials trying to determine the eligibility of former Ohio St QB Terrelle Pryor. Pryor has petitioned the NFL for inclusion in this week's NFL Supplemental Draft

Pryor was facing an opening 5 game suspension due to NCAA infractions for receiving improper benefits including taking cash. With the Pryor suspension and the termination of highly successful Ohio St. head coach Jim Tressel due to this and other violations, the Buckeye starting passer seeked advice about turning pro this summer. He has been working out this summer in hopes of landing with an NFL team during the preseason.

With the delay in the NFL Supplemental Draft from July to August due to the lockout and now the postponement, the NFL office is trying to set an example of dealing with suspended college players. Players may have to face a brief suspension to start their pro careers that makes them accountable for their college action and send a message to future defections to the pro game to avoid an infraction. This delay may accomplish to future college players with violations of NCAA by laws.

The NFL has circulated a list of players eligible for the NFL Supplemental Draft and Pryor is not been included. Currently, there are 5 players are eligible for this player draft including major college players, RB Caleb King of Georgia, DE Michael McAdoo of North Carolina and safety Tracy Wilson of Northern Illinois. In addition, there are a couple of small college prospects in DE Keenan Mace of Lindenwood and CB Torez Jones of Western Carolina who have petitioned the NFL commissioner’s office for entry in the NFL Supplemental Draft.

NFL Combine 2011 - Dash For Cash

NFL Combine 2011
Dash For Cash - Sprint Numbers

Photo - Da'Rel Scott - Maryland

The NFL Combine 2011 has been completed with several outstanding workouts that will have a huge effect on the final player rankings.
Running back Da'Rel Scott and wide receiver Edmund Gates had the best hand held times at the NFL Combine 2011 that are posted along with the electronically timed sprints. Both players are second tier prospects who improved their draft stock significantly with a strong combine performance.

None of the combine performances were more impressive than wideout Julio Jones of Alabama. Jones showed incredible athleticism with a 4.39 forty time @ 220 lbs. He leaped out of the building with a 11’3” broad jump and a 38.8” vertical leap. His numbers were outstanding and what is more amazing is that he did this with a broken bone in his foot. He will have an 8 week recovery time for the injury, but his workout made a statement of both his blue chip athleticism and his super toughness and work ethic. He played through a broken hand during the 2010 season where he missed no time.

NFL Draft 2011 Pro Prospect - Cam Newton Workout

Cam Newton Schedules Early Workout

Photo - QB Cam Newton - Auburn

QB Cam Newton of Auburn has scheduled a workout in San Diego for February 10th that will be open to the media. Newton declared for the NFL Draft 2011 in January and is one of the premier prospects at the position this year. Though he clearly needs to answer some key questions about his overall development, he is one of the Wild Cards in the first round at this point of the process. NFL teams according to league rules say, teams can attend a private workout for a player only at the player’s school or in his hometown. In addition, teams are not allowed to work out a player who has been invited to the NFL Combine before the event in late February. The NFL Combine is scheduled for Feb 23rd thru March 1st in Indianapolis, In.

We will have a complete scouting report on the NFL Combine and Pro Days in the newsletters in March and April. We will also have an updated workout report prior to the NFL Draft.

Newton’s scheduled workout will be only a few weeks before the NFL Combine. Newton wants to show the progress that he has made since winning the Heisman Trophy and BCS national title game in early January. He will be working with noted QB coach George Whitfield who has also worked with Pittsburgh QB Ben Roethlisberger among other big name NFL passers. Whitfield has been working with Newton since the Auburn’s victory over Oregon and hopes to improve his overall mechanics from his initial setup from center and setting his feet in the pocket to throw the ball. Newton played almost exclusively in a shotgun spread offense at Auburn and rarely went under center or went through his progressions in the pocket for secondary receivers.

Whether Newton intends to attend the NFL Combine is unclear, though his early indications after declaring was that he would go center stage in Indianapolis in front of NFL front office brass. The Auburn pro day is also an option for Newton, though many events at the schools for the top prospects has been limited in many respects to a few drills according to how they do at the NFL Combine. The NFL Combine will probably determine which events they participate in at the pro day in the spring.
