NFL postpones supplemental draft; no new date scheduled

NEW YORK -- The NFL supplemental draft originally scheduled for Wednesday has been postponed.

NFL spokesman Michael Signora confirmed Tuesday that the draft will not be held as planned and that teams have been told a new date hasn't yet been set.

At least five players, including former Georgia running back Caleb King, are known to be eligible for the supplemental draft.

Former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor gave up his final season following an NCAA investigation of the Buckeyes' football program. He wants to get into the draft, but as of Tuesday afternoon, he hadn't yet been declared eligible for it.
