Now that Ohio St. QB Terrelle Pryor has entered the Supplemental Draft, could some other college stars follow him this summer?
CB Cliff Harris (5-11, 180, 4.43-40) a junior at Oregon had 6 ints, an 18+ yard punt return average, with 4 TD's in 2010, was suspended indefinitely today. This followed his being arrested at 4:30am PT Sunday morning, for driving 118 MPH, in excess of 100 MPH over the speed limit, with a suspended license, in a rental car, given to him by a university employee, and the NCAA has started an investigation. "College Football Live" reported today that Harris has numerous unpaid school fines, I believe totaling over $1,500, and has had several outer questionable acts in his college past. If Harris is a "redshirt" junior (I'm not sure) he could enter the Supplemental draft this summer, Gil Brandt ranks him as the 43rd best player in the 2012 draft, and walterfootball.com list him as a top 25 pick. If he does enter the Supplemental Draft, if he's still available at the Panthers 2nd round pick they should take him, he would look good paired with Hogan in 2012.
WR Michael Floyd (6-3, 228, 4.51-40) of Notre Dame was lucky to escape a season long suspension this spring for a DUI, his 3rd arrest for drunkeness, so 1 more mishap before the deadline to enter the Supplemental Draft might force him to enter the draft. Gil Brandt ranks Floyd as the 17th best player in the 2012 draft, and walterfootball.com list him as a 2nd round pick. Only the top ranked WR Alshon Jeffery's (6-4, 233, 4.50-40) is bigger than Floyd in the 2012 draft. If he were to enter the draft, and be available at the Panthers 2nd round pick, then he might be hard for them to pass up.
OT Mike Adams (6-8, 305, 5.12-40) of Ohio St. is suspended for the first 5 games this season, so far he has said he will remain in school, but if another shoe drops on the program maybe he will change his mind. Walterfootball.com ranks him as a 1st or 2nd round pick, but nfldraftscout.com has him ranked as the #8 player in the 2012 draft. If he enters the draft, and is available at the Panthers 2nd round pick, he might be hard to pass up if Otah continues to show little sign of recovery.
WR DeVier Posey (6-2, 213, 4.51) of Ohio St. is another of the 5 players suspended for the first 5 games next season, but said he will remain in school, though that was before Pryor left. I saw 1 espert predict that he would be a late 1st round pick in the Supplemental Draft, though most expect him to be a 3rd or 4th round pick.
Of course none of these players may decide to enter the Supplemental Draft, leaving only Pryor in the draft. Complicating things is that a lottery of the 13 teams with 6 or fewer wins will be heald each round to determin the draft order in the Supplemental Draft, so we don't know where the Panthers will be drafting.
