Former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor has been declared eligible for Monday’s NFL supplemental draft but must sit out the first five games after he signs a contract. The NFL made the announcement earlier today that he would be eligible, along with five other players.

Pryor gave up his final season with the Buckeyes following an NCAA investigation into the football team’s memorabilia-for-cash scandal. He would’ve had to sit out five games at Ohio State if he had chosen to return to school. Pryor may not practice or play until Week 6 of the regular season.

The other players declared eligible for the supplemental draft are: defensive backs Torez Jones of Western Carolina and Tracy Wilson of Northern Illinois, defensive ends Keenan Mace of Lindenwood and Mike McAdoo of North Carolina and running back Caleb King of Georgia.
