This year's NFL Supplemental Draft on Aug. 22 saw the Oakland Raiders select Terrelle Pryor of Ohio State in the third round, the only pick in the 2011 NFL Supplemental Draft.
The Raiders, in exchange for selection Pryor in the third round, will not have a third round pick come the 2012 NFL Draft next April.
Pryor will not be able to play during the first five games of regular season, due to a series of NCAA investigations around scandal while he was at Ohio State. Oakland's decision to select Pryor in the third round of the supplemental draft is a costly one, as they will not have any stake in three of the first four rounds during next year's regular draft.
Oakland will not have second and fourth round picks in the 2012 NFL Draft as well, as they lost the second round in 2011 to New England and the fourth from acquiring Jason Campbell from Washington, as reported by the Bleacher Report.
Western Carolina's Torez Jones, Northern Illinois' Tracy Wilson, Lindenwood's Keenan Mace, Georgia's Caleb King and North Carolina's Mike McAdoo all went unselected in the supplemental draft and will now be free agent players.
The Supplemental Draft, held yearly before the season starts, paves the way for those not involved in early entry in the initial NFL draft in April to have a chance to play in the NFL. It is run by a lottery system comprised of three rounds.
As a rookie quarterback, the selection of Terrelle Pryor countered by lack of presence in the 2012 NFL Draft hints that Oakland is in the market for long term developments to its offensive arsenal.
