By now, you might have heard a little story about the lawyer for Ohio State QB Terrelle Pryor announcing that Pryor won’t return to the Buckeyes ever again.

And assuming Pryor is not going to transfer to another FBS school and have to sit out a year before resuming his final season of eligibility (minus the five games he’s suspended, of course), transfer to a Division II or III school and NOT sit out a year but play inferior competition, or take his talents to the CFL or UFL (a lot of assumptions, I know), he very well could end up in this year’s NFL supplemental draft.

Assuming, of course, there actually IS a supplemental draft.

Larry James, Pryor’s lawyer, told the Cleveland Plain Dealer that Pryor hasn’t decided whether he’ll enter the supplemental draft and that he actually might spend his senior year finishing up his classes to graduate.

While that latter option seems laughable -- even if there is no supplemental draft, why wouldn’t he play professionally somewhere? -- Pryor isn’t likely to be a top pick in the supplemental draft.

The Plain Dealer speculated he’d be a mid-round pick, and that sounds about right to me, simply because Pryor hasn’t been as good as advertised and because he's raw as a pro talent. But there doesn’t seem to be much doubt that SOMEBODY would look at Pryor’s athleticism and talent and find a way to squeeze him onto a roster.

And for now, that’s probably his best bet.

If any of high school phenoms out there need an example of what not to do in college, look no further than Pryor.  #1 prospect, and here he sits, not on anyone's roster and projected low in the supplemental draft.  His best options are to graduate and/or sit out a year, or play in a lesser league.

For any other high school kid wanting to know how to waste big-money potential, here you go.  Lesson learned.
