The Giants selected QB Dave Brown out of Duke in the 1992 NFL Supplemental Draft. Brown was the face of the Dan Reeves era, which saw the Giants plummet to the bottom of the league in the mid-1990's.

The Raiders have spent a 2012 third round pick on former Ohio State Quarterback Terrelle Pryor in the NFL expansion draft. The Giants did not select any player, as expected.

Al Davis Strikes again!?Most draft experts had suggested Pryor was worth a fifth round pick, but thought that some team would ante up and pay a fourth rounder. ?Well, the Raiders have again gone against the grain, raising more than a few eyebrows along the way.

Although there was almost no chance the Giants would select ?Pryor in the supplemental draft, once Pryor posted a 4.38 forty-yard dash, it sealed his fate as an Oakland Raider.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has his hands full trying to manage the behavior of NFL players. Yesterday, he granted Ohio State QB Terrelle Pryor an exemption and allowed him to enter the NFL Supplemental Draft, which will be held Monday. From the NFL:

In addition to being notified that Terrelle Pryor may be selected in the Supplemental Draft, NFL clubs were informed that Pryor made decisions that undermine the integrity of the eligibility rules for the NFL Draft. Those actions included failing to cooperate with the NCAA and hiring an agent in violation of NCAA rules. This resulted in Ohio State declaring him ineligible to continue playing college football. Pryor then applied to enter the NFL after the regular draft. Pryor had accepted at the end of the 2010 college football season a suspension for the first five games of the 2011 season for violating NCAA rules.

In his decision allowing Pryor to enter the Supplemental Draft, Commissioner Roger Goodell determined that Pryor will be ineligible to practice prior to or play in the first five games of the NFL regular season after he signs. Pryor may be selected in the Supplemental Draft, negotiate and sign a contract with an NFL club, and fully participate in the remainder of the preseason.
