Only six players are eligible for this year’s NFL Supplemental Draft, and even fewer will end up being drafted by an NFL team. According to league sources, the Dallas Cowboys are not expected to be active in this year’s supplemental draft.
In 2010 the Cowboys forfeited their 2011 seventh round draft pick to acquire defensive tackle Josh Brent. While Brent showed promise and was a solid player, he is currently in trouble with the law. Not many teams are willing to spend a high draft pick during the supplemental draft, unless the player is flooded with talent.
Last year, Josh Gordon was selected by the Cleveland Browns who forfeit their second round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft to acquire the wide receiver. Look for most of the players in this year’s supplemental draft to clear waivers after going undrafted, and sign with NFL teams before the start of training camps.
