NFL Schedules the Supplemental Draft for August 17th

Earlier today, the NFL announced that it would be hosting the 2011 Supplemental Draft in nine days. While no players have been declared eligible yet, the expectation is that Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor will be the highlight of this year's supplemental class.

Over the past several years, the Eagles have stayed away from the supplemental draft. In fact, you have to go all the way back to the selection of Cris Carter in 1987 to find a supplemental player that wound up in Philadelphia. However, other teams around the NFC East tell a different story. Just last year, the Cowboys selected DT Josh Brent with their seventh round pick. The year before that, the Redskins grabbed DE Jeremy Jarmon with a third rounder.

Although Pryor likely won't catch the eye of the Eagles, who are currently set at quarterback, he may end up with any of our NFC East rivals. The Redskins in particular should take a good look at Pryor, since he's a better option than the ongoing joke of Rex Grossman vs. John Beck at quarterback.
