Terrelle Pryor's pro day was scheduled for Friday even though a recent league memo didn't list him as one of the players eligible for the NFL Supplemental Draft scheduled for August 17.
Not yet, anyway.
On Tuesday, CBSSports.com's Will Brinson pointed to a report by NFL Network's Jason La Canfora that said the league "could make a final determination" on Pryor's status later because of the their "rolling" decision-making process on player eligibility and the supplemental draft.
So the wheels of progress appeared to be moving, albeit slowly. "We spoke with the NFL today and were told that no decision has been made yet regarding Terrelle's eligibility for the supplemental draft," agent Drew Rosenhaus tweeted Tuesday.
Well, here's the latest via ESPN's Adam Schefter: Pryor's pro day is now on hold until the league decides whether he's eligible.
When that will happen remains unclear, although we can assume that it probably won't be by Friday.
Here's what we know: the supplemental draft is a week off and if the league declares Pryor eligible, he will have just a few days to organize a workout and invite interested parties to show up. Pro days, in general, are pressure-packed; players are performing for their football future. If Pryor doesn't show well, that could mean the difference between, say, going in the third or fourth round, and going undrafted.
In terms of possible suitors, here's what Brinson wrote Tuesday:
Despite no decision on Pryor, multiple reports note that teams that will be in attendance for Pryor's pro day. Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer reports that the Browns will attend, CBSSports.com's Redskin Rapid Reporter John Keim says the Redskins will show up, and Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas reports the Cowboys will be there as well.
This uncertainty for Pryor actually is in line with all the reports we've heard since he decided to bounce out of Ohio State after their program got a not-so-friendly visit from the NCAA. In fact, that aforementioned visit probably has a lot to do with the NFL's decision -- they don't want to grant eligibility to someone who doesn't actually meet the requirements for the supplemental draft.
For now, we wait.
