NFL Supplemental Draft Scheduled For Monday, Redskins 'Unlikely' To Pick Terrelle Pryor

The 2011 NFL supplemental draft is scheduled for 1 p.m. on Monday, having been pushed back five days from its original date. The headline prospect is Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor, and the Washington Redskins were one of 17 teams to watch him work out on Friday. However, according to Mike Jones of the Washington Post, it is "unlikely" the Redskins will end up sacrificing a 2012 draft pick to select Pryor.

It seems rather unlikely that the Redskins would take a chance on Pryor because given their rebuilding efforts, they can't afford to use a draft pick and roster spot on a quarterback who is so raw.

The supplemental draft is a silent auction where teams go through seven rounds and have the opportunity to place a bid in for each of the six players eligible. If they win the bid, they forfeit whatever round pick they use in the following draft. In other words, if the Redskins take Pryor in the third round of the supplemental draft, they lose a third-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.
