This is one of those weird days where hardly anyone notices that an official NFL Draft event is taking place. The NFL's Supplemental Draft goes down today, but don't expect to see ESPN broadcasting live from Radio City Music Hall.
This event takes place over email. (You read that right.) Teams submit the player or players they have interest in and the corresponding round in which they would take them. Order rank is determined by won/loss records, such that the team with the worst record and highest bid is awarded the player. That team then loses their pick from that round in the next draft.
There are four players available in today's Supplemental Draft:
- New Mexico WR/RB Chase Clayton
- North Carolina LB Darius Lipford
- Virginia University of Lynchburg DT LaKendrick Ross
- SMU RB Traylon Shead
