Eight players eligible for NFL Supplemental Draft to be held July 12

New, comments

The NFL has announced that the 2012 Supplemental Draft will be held on Thursday, July 12 at 1:00 p.m. ET. Eight players are eligible to be selected during that supplemental draft: Boise State DB Quaylon Ewing, Baylor WR Josh Gordon, Syracuse RB Adam Harris, Iowa State T Adrian Haughton, Carson-Newman LB Larry Lumpkin, Georgia DE Montez Robinson, McMurray WR Houston Tuminello, and TCU RB Ed Wesley. The supplemental draft is held for players who lost their eligibility after the deadline to declare for the 2012 NFL Draft passed.

The supplemental draft works through an auction system, where every team is allowed to give up a 2013 draft pick for any player in the supplemental draft. Throughout its history the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have only drafted one player in the supplemental draft: Dan Sileo in 1987. Few supplemental draft players go on to have a successful career, so I would not expect the Buccaneers to use a future draft pick on any of these players.
