Terrelle Pryor, the troubled Ohio State quarterback,  has finally found a home in the National Football League.

He was selected in the third round of the NFL Supplemental Draft Monday. And Pryor, who led the Buckeyes to a 31-4 record during his controversial collegiate career, was selected by the Oakland Raiders. Pryor will serve a five-game suspension without pay that was handed down by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
Pryor, who stands 6-foot-6 and weighs in at 233 pounds, comes to Oakland after he was the central figure in a messy situation at Ohio State. His former coach Jim Tressel lost his job, and Pryor, the Rose Bowl's Most Valuable Player in 2010, was suspended for the first five games of the 2011 season by the NCAA , as a sanction for selling memorabilia.
Pryor, threw for 6,177 yards in his career at Ohio State (2008-10) with 57 touchdown passes and 26 interceptions. He rushed for 2,164 yards and scored 17 touchdowns in his Buckeyes career.
Last season, Pryor completed 65% of his passes for 2,772 yards. He threw 27 touchdown passes and he was picked off 11 times. He also ran for 754 yards and scored four touchdowns as the Buckeyes went 12-1 and defeated Arkansas in the Sugar Bowl.
Pryor will not be eligible to play in the NFL until October.
