Six Players Eligible for 2013 NFL Supplemental Draft
By Chris Malumphy
Six players are eligible to be selected in the 2013 NFL Supplemental Draft, including two defensive linemen from UNLV. The eligible players are defensive tackle Nate Holloway and defensive end James Boyd, both from the University of Nevada-Las Vegas; defensive end Toby Jackson, Central Florida; wide receiver Dewayne Peace, Houston; wide receiver O.J. Ross, Purdue; and defensive back Damond Smith, South Alabama.
The best players ever selected in the supplemental draft were wide receiver Cris Carter, selected by the Philadelphia Eagles in the 4th round in 1987, and quarterback Bernie Kosar, picked by the Cleveland Browns in the 1st round in 1985.
Last year, the Browns selected wide receiver Josh Gordon in the second round of the supplemental draft. Gordon tied for third with T.J. Hilton in receptions by rookies in 2012 with 50, trailing only Justin Blackmon and Kendall Wright, who caught 64 passes each. For a historical list of supplemental draft picks click here.
