Four players eligible for supplemental draft

Unknown

The final list is in, so you can prepare your Mock NFL Supplemental Drafts.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, four players are eligible for the annual exercise in “who the hell is this guy”: New Mexico wide receiver Chase Clayton, North Carolina linebacker Darius Lipford, Virginia-Lynchburg defensive tackle Lakendrick Ross and Southern Methodist running back Traylon Shead.

Every team will have the opportunity to choose those four players. If they use a pick, they lose the corresponding spot in next year’s regular draft.

If you’re looking to win your mock draft pool, the smart money might be to fill in “pass” on every line, and then spend your time doing something more productive with your life.

    I live in New Mexico and have never even heard of Chase Clayton.

    You going to do another supplemental mock draft?

    None were drafted, but they did keep in touch, and eventually formed Clayton, Lipford, Ross & Shead Landscaping.

    How does the NFL determine which round draft choice is given up for these guys? Are they a 3rd or a 7th?

    If they don’t get picked, do they become free agents?

    A team does by drafting them in a particular round. If two teams draft a player in say the 5th round it will go to the weaker team based on previous years finish.

    yes free agents

    The best player on this list is Lipford and he is a free agent caliber player.

    The Lynchburg kid can’t stay eligible and while he looks the part, I don’t think he will be able to digest NFL playbooks.

    The other two just couldn’t hardly get on the field and one of the remaining two was out of shape at his workouts.

    NFL teams will pass on drafting all of these guys and then 1 or 2 of them will get a contract.

    Hope these guys have a backup plan to the NFL.

    I hate the way Berman always tips the supplemental draft picks :(

    That UNC kid probably made a ton of money at UNC anyway.

    Did any of their dads play in the NFL? At least they’d get a shot like Jerry Rice’s kid, who did nothing in college.

    .
    Why isn’t the supplemental draft named the “Davis Draft ” after AL Davis? He loved this bonus round.

    Lackendrick and Traylon? Who named these kids?

  14. seabreezes51 says: Jul 9, 2014 1:46 PM

    Is ESPN gonna run this draft for three days?
    I don’t know if I can take three more days of Mel Kiper.

    Clayton just got here from over the border so give him a chance. Actually he thought it was a soccer tryout.

    These supplemental draft choices usually have issues, ask Cleveland how there last supplemental choice is working out. Josh Gordon has turned in a mental case.

    Considering if the Browns don’t pick Gordon they probably end up with Justin Blackmon I think they won that battle of mental cases by a mile.
