The NFL supplemental draft, originally scheduled for today, has been postponed. According to the NFL Network, all 32 teams were notified of the postponement and will be made aware when a new date has been set. The greatest significance of the postponement will be how it affects former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor, who has not yet been ruled eligible, according to the NFL Network. The supplemental draft is held for players who missed the filing deadline for the regular draft or who have college eligibility issues.

Pryor left Ohio State in June in the wake of head coach Jim Tressel's resignation, having been at the center of the scandal that forced Tressel to leave. He received improper benefits for selling awards and other memorabilia in 2009, and would have been forced to sit out the first five games of the 2011 season as punishment from the NCAA.
