For those of you who don't know, the Supplemental Draft is available for players who became eligible only after the draft. Mostly for flakes who decided to stay in college, wait, no, I want to play pro, ok let me play pro. Or guys with eligibility problems from previous years (which can happen for any number of reasons, such as breaking the stringent and vague team rule whereas players aren't allowed to rob people). Your 2007 Supplemental Draft class is, in its entirety:
Florida State DT Clifton Dickson
Maryland OT Jared Gaither
Central Missouri DB RoShawn Marshall
Glendale (Ariz.) Community College WR Eric McCain
Connecticut DB Donta' Moore
Georgia DB Paul Oliver
Nebraska OT Chris Patrick
Utah State DT Brian Soi
East Central (Okla.) OT Aaron Turner
Texas State-San Marcos LB Mark Washington
Of the players available, the only ones I see making a shot on this team are at OL and DT. Linebacker is stacked. Wide receiver is stacked. Cornerback is stacked. Safety is stacked.
Both the first two D-linemen listed are trouble. Jared Gaither is a local talent, lost eligibility because of academics, but is very athletic. Played B-Ball and there is reason to believe he's a physical monster that simply needs good coaching, which we can provide. Chris Patrick is versatile but not good. DT Brian Soi is the best linemen available from the looks of it. Aaron Turner gets a no vote.
So that's Jared Gaither, Brian Soi, and perhaps Chris Patrick that are worth considering. Do we have a shot at those guys? Picks are lotteries organized into three tiers, and we're in the first one, with 5 other teams. I'd say that gives us a moderate chance to pick up either Gaither or Soi, a decent chance to choose among them, and a great chance that we'll get at least one of the three. All of these guys are marginal to make the team, though hope springs eternal.
Reader(s), any of these guys you're big on? Is there any real reason to get our hopes up?
