Supplemental draft comes and goes with no selections

Just as it did last year, the NFL supplemental draft has yielded a grand total of zero players selected.

The supplemental draft came and went quickly this afternoon, with no players selected.

Four players were eligible to be selected: New Mexico wide receiver Chase Clayton, North Carolina linebacker Darius Lipford, Virginia-Lynchburg defensive tackle Lakendrick Ross and Southern Methodist running back Traylon Shead. None of those players is considered a particularly good prospect, so it’s not surprising that no team was even willing to give up a 2015 seventh-round pick to acquire one of them.

Now Clayton, Lipford, Ross and Shead are all unrestricted free agents and can sign with any team. All four of them have a good shot of at least getting a training camp invitation, but they’ll all be viewed as long shots to make a 53-man roster.

The last time anyone was picked in the supplemental draft was 2012, when the Browns gave up their 2013 second-round pick to acquire Josh Gordon.

    I thought the Jets took Ross in the 6th rd?

    175. New York Jets (8-8) – LaKendrick Ross, DL, Virginia-Lynchburg

    208. Miami Dolphins (8-8) – Traylon Shead, RB, SMU

    But I guess two players picked means

    And the the first overall pick of the 2015 draft…the Oakland Raiders select…

    They did, in a mock draft. Read it closely.

    The Jets didn’t take Ross in the 6th, nor did the Dolphins take Shead in the 7th. Those were mock drafts from nfl.com.

    I officially declare myself a supplemental mock draft expert, as I have accurate predicted every pick in the last couple years. What do I win?

    I thought the Packers picked up the whole team from Apple State school of mines and coal?

    And I waited by the phone all day.

    I guess I’ll have to throw out my Chiefs Lakendrick Ross jersey

  12. clashpoint says: Jul 10, 2014 1:48 PM

    In the light of Gordon’s recent troubles, should being eligible for the supplemental draft all by itself raise a red flag?

  13. censorshipstinks says: Jul 10, 2014 1:48 PM

    who the heck makes a mock draft of the supplemental draft and puts trades in there. Henry Hodgson will never get any credibility from me again.

  14. jhort89 says: Jul 10, 2014 1:51 PM

    Haha … I never even imagined there would be “mock” supplemental drafts, let alone on the NFL’s own website.

    My bad for being a sucker …

    As long as everyone understands that Cliff Branch was a better wide receiver than Lynn Swann, then everything is okay.

    “Anyone notice a draft in here?”

    “Nope.”.

    The Supplemental Draft: future home of America’s Most Wanted.

    Lakendrick Ross is huge. 360 lb Defensive Tackle.
    Some team will be interested to see how well he moves.

    It was Mel Kipers best work since he has worked the draft.

    As Josh Gordon tells it, he ran into the Browns GM at the grocery store. They got to talking, and the GM needed to make a pick, and Gordon was in the supplemental draft, so they swapped needs, and the rest is history.

    Soon Goodell will make the supplemental draft a 3 day event.

  22. rcali says: Jul 10, 2014 4:07 PM

    Did the Commish get continually booed by whoever was in the room between every pick?

  23. karlsrath says: Jul 10, 2014 4:47 PM

    The really only good supplemental draft pick was Bernie Kosar. I can’t think of any other than Gordon.Sad part he is smoking and drinking himself outta the league.
