You knew this one was coming, all week there has been speculation on Terrelle Pryor, Mike Adams, and DeVier Posey bolting Ohio State for the possible NFL Supplemental Draft in July. As it always seems to develop with the Redskins, they was immediate linked speculation that Mike Shanahan could draft Buckeye QB Terrelle Pryor. Yesterday a reader (Phil from Fairfax), who I officially hate now, brought up Pryor on Dan Graziano's NFL East Blog:
If Mike Shanahan and the Redskins believe Pryor is their quarterback of the future, then maybe he's worth a mid-round supplemental pick. But next year's draft (again, assuming there is one) is QB-rich, and the Redskins look as if they might be in position to secure a high pick in that draft. So if they're looking at Pryor as a long-range quarterback prospect, they'll probably have to decide where he ranks among guys like Andrew Luck, Landry Jones and Matt Barkley.
Then Graziano went on to try to sell Pryor as a possible fit for the Skins as a WR. I'm sure Pryor would be great for an Eastern Motors commercial, but can we please keep this guy and any speculation about him coming to DC as far away as possible. I'm not even sure why a Skins fan would even ask about Pryor and possible have the idea manifest throughout the district. Maybe Phil from Fairfax is a Cowboys fan, a Buckeyes fan, or maybe LJP.
As ENsDad27 pointed out earlier this week, OT Mike Adams could be worth a flyer in the supplemental draft. He should be among the top tackle prospects in next April's draft.
DeVier Posey, is a very interesting prospect in my mind for the supplemental draft. He would likely be a 2nd or 3rd round pick in the April draft but you could probably get him in the supplemental for a 5th, 6th, or 7th. He's a big possession receiver and similar to Leonard Hankerson in a number of ways. But at this point, would bringing another rookie WR into camp be overkill? And would it essentially negate one of our picks from this past April?
