A pair of college players have declared themselves eligible for the NFL’s supplemental draft.
According to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun, West Georgia defensive end Darrius Caldwell and North Carolina Central wide receiver/kick returner Adrian Wilkins have both applied for inclusion in the supplemental draft.
Caldwell led the Gulf South Conference (Division II) with 12 sacks. He recorded 69 tackles and 18.5 tackles for loss last season.
Wilkins averaged 21.6 yards per kick return last season and hauled in 50 catches for 541 yards.
The supplemental draft is held in July and is open to players who were not eligible for the main NFL Draft in May, for one reason or another. If a player is selected, the team making the choice has to forfeit a selection from the corresponding round in next year’s draft.
If Caldwell and Wilkins aren’t selected, they will become unrestricted free agents.
