The Oakland Raiders have taken Terrelle Pryor, the former Ohio State quarterback, in the third round of the NFL’s supplemental draft.

The Raiders will give up a 2012 third-round pick for Pryor, who will not be available for the first five games of the NFL season. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell ruled that Pryor’s five-game collegiate suspension conveys to the NFL.

The move means the Raiders will have plenty of time on their hands during the draft next April: they no longer have second-, third- or fourth-round picks. They traded their second-round pick to New England on draft-day 2011, spent their third-round pick on Pryor and traded their fourth-round pick to the Redskins for Jason Campbell.

Out of six eligible players, Pryor was the only one taken in the supplemental draft. The others — Western Carolina defensive back Torez Jones, Georgia running back Caleb King, Lindenwood defensive end Keenan Mace, North Carolina defensive end Mike McAdoo and Northern Illinois defensive back Tracy Wilson — are now free agents.
