Terrelle Pryor finally was drafed by the Oakland Raiders in the third round of the NFL Supplemental Draft recently. The NFL decided to uphold a previous 5-game suspension, by the NCAA when Pryor was at Ohio State, because of receiving improper benefits from a Columbus tattoo parlor owner.
Pryor decided to leave school and enter the supplemental draft. Then the draft was pushed back and a precedent was set, by the NFL, stating that after the rookie signed he could play in preseason games but after that couldn’t practice or play in any NFL games until week 6.
