First here are the rules of the supplemental draft:
NFL supplemental draft preview: 4 players eligible - SBNation.com
The quick rules of the supplemental draft are simple. It takes place via email. A team submits the player or players they want and the corresponding round in which they would take them. Teams are grouped by won/loss record so the team with the worst record and highest bid will be awarded the player. Consequently they’ll lose their pick from that round the next draft. This year’s supplemental draft is a relatively quiet one compared to previous years. No players were taken in last year’s supplemental draft, and that could be the case again this year. There is no Josh Gordon or Terrelle Pryor this year.
Here are the four players with a little info on a couple. Click the link above to see Dan Kadar's full write-up:
Chase Clayton, WR, New Mexico
Clayton didn’t play for the Lobos last season after being ruled academically ineligible. In 2012, though, he was an honorable mention all-conference player as a kick returner after scoring two touchdowns on returns. Clayton has moved around positions from defensive back to fullback, to tailback to wide receiver. His best bet may be latching on in the NFL as a specialist. The market for those players is minimal. Oddly, Clayton’s official New Mexico bio knocked him for his pass protection.
Darius Lipford, LB, North Carolina
Lipford played the bandit position for the Tar Heels and had 20 tackles, six tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks. Lipford was a starter for UNC in 2011 at strong-side linebacker. But a torn ACL after that season in the team’s bowl knocked him out of the 2012 season.
Lakendrick Ross, DT, Virginia-Lynchburg
Traylon Shead, RB, SMU
I'm not sure we will ever see a talent like Josh Gordon hit the supplemental draft ever again but you never in this business.
So does anyone out there have any intelligence on these four players? I'm doubting any get drafted but maybe one or two is worth a 7th round flyer?
