The NFL will hold its annual supplemental draft next month and a onetime University of Texas recruit will reportedly be among the players eligible to be selected.

Longtime NFL reporter Howard Balzer reports that tight end Devonaire Clarington will work out for scouts in Miami on July 8 in hopes of catching someone’s eye.

Clarington played at three high schools before committing to Texas for the 2015 season, but never played for the Longhorns due to academic issues. He spent time at Blinn Junior College before moving on to Northland Community College in Minnesota.

He had 48 catches for 916 yards and 11 touchdowns at Northland.

Clarington is the third player set for the supplemental draft this summer. Former Syracuse linebacker Shyheim Cullen and former West Virginia wide receiver Marcus Simms are the others.

  1. He has as good a chance of being selected as I do. No team is giving up a 2020 pick for someone with that resume. Good luck as an UDFA.

  2. With a name like Devonaire Clarington, he should give up football and focus on being a butler on Downton Abbey. Or the Monopoly Man.

  3. @realitypolice- you do realize that if he goes undrafted, he *is then an UDfA, correct? What does it hurt to declare and see if some team wants to roll the dice on you… and in the process make a few more bucks?
    I don’t know anything about this kid, aside from this article, but maybe let’s let him play out his life? Just sayin’…
