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.

There will be a Special Report for subscribers for the NFL Supplemental Draft 2011

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.

Auburn’s DT Nick Fairley Joins QB Cam Newton for NFL Draft 2011 - Underclassmen Update

Auburn’s Nick Fairley Joins Cam Newton for NFL Draft 2011 - Underclassmen Update Report:

DT Nick Fairley - Auburn

Auburn's Nick Fairley has entered the NFL Draft 2011 joining teammate QB Cam Newton who announced on Thursday his intentions to turn professional. Underclassmen have until Saturday to declare for the NFL Draft 2011 with three additional days to rescind that decision and return to their college team if they have not signed with an agent.

Fairley is a massive junior defensive tackle who projects as one of the top picks in April's draft. At 6'5" and 300 lbs., Fairley has dominated SEC offensive linemen all season with 56 overall tackles, including 11.5 sacks and 24 TFLs. He was named the defensive MVP of the BCS National Championship Game that Auburn won 22-19 over Oregon. In the BCS title game, he had a sack, three TFLs and a forced fumble. During the 2010 season, he led the SEC with 24 TFL and he set a school-record with his 11.5 sacks. He played only two seasons at Auburn after transferring from junior college level.

Our January Newsletter will have a complete evaluation of all Underclassmen with a new Top 150 Prospects, Three Round Mock Draft, All-star Game analysis plus more next week.
