Ohio State QB Terrelle Pryor has been declared eligible by the NFL for the supplemental draft, however he has been suspended for the first five games of the 2011 season after he signs his contract, but he can play in preseason games and use team facilities.

"... Pryor made decisions that undermine the integrity of the eligibility rules for the NFL Draft. Those actions included failing to cooperate with the NCAA and hiring an agent in violation of NCAA rules, which resulted in Ohio State declaring him ineligible to continue playing college football.

"Pryor then applied to enter the NFL after the regular draft. Pryor had accepted at the end of the 2010 college football season a suspension for the first five games of the 2011 season for violating NCAA rules. Pryor will be ineligible to practice prior to or play in the first five games of the NFL regular season after he signs."
The 2011 supplemental draft will take place Monday, Aug. 22.
