Ex-Ohio State QB Pryor postpones pro day for second time

Terrelle Pryor's uncertain road to the NFL supplemental draft has led to a second postponement of his pro day.

The former Ohio State star pushed back his showcase event because the NFL still had not ruled on his eligibility for the supplemental draft, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Reviewreported on Wednesday.

The Cleveland Browns, Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys all reportedly planned to attend the event, which was to be held at a high school in Greensburg, Pa.

NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora reported Wednesday that more players were declared eligible for the Aug. 17 draft, according to league sources, but Pryor was not on the list. A league source said a final decision on Pryor's status has not yet been made. Pryor was also missing from the previous list of eligible players the league included in a previous memo sent to all 32 teams.

Determining eligibility for the supplemental draft is done on a "rolling basis," according to the league, so Pryor could be added to the list later. Pryor's situation is still under consideration, a league source told La Canfora.

Pryor announced in June that he was leaving Ohio State amid claims that he accepted improper benefits from a tattoo parlor owner in Columbus, Ohio. He was suspended for five games of the 2011 season by the NCAA, but could have regained eligibility for the rest of the Buckeye season.

Because of that, Pryor's status is muddled. NFL rules state the supplemental draft is open to "any player who is ineligible."
