SMU running back likely to enter supplemental draft


At a time when good running backs with long resumes in college are having trouble getting drafted, it figures to be harder still for one to follow the path of the Supplemental Draft.

According to Dane Brugler of CBS Sports, it appears SMU running back Traylon Shead will enter the process for players who weren’t eligible for the spring version.

The former Texas recruit had 51 carries for 197 yards and three touchdowns for SMU last year. He’s already hired an agent, per the Dallas Morning News, and he hasn’t been participating in spring workouts.

That’s not a good sign for someone burning a future draft pick on him, though he could end up in a training camp.

    Would be easily number 1 RB on that dump NFL team that plays in Louisiana..

    I thought Shead was going to do big things taking over for Zach Line, but the team ended up better off with their starting MLB playing ironman football at both positions. Yikes.

    If he makes it through the supplimental draft unselected, does he automaticall become an NFL free agent or does he enter into next year’s draft first?

    No way he gets drafted. Jag/Camp fodder. He’d be lucky to make Jacksonville’s practice squad.

    He can always develop his skills in the NFL debelopment league…… oh wait.

    big powerful back that ran a 4.52 as a junior

    but I don’t see a team using a draft pick on him. likely makes a team in my opinion because of the 90 man rosters, then who knows from there
