2015 NFL Supplemental Draft

Examining the 7 players eligible for 2015 Supplemental Draft July 9

By Rob Rang | The Sports Xchange/CBSSports.com

The NFL announced today the names of seven players granted special eligibility for this summer's Supplemental Draft, scheduled for next Thursday, July 9.

Alphabetically, the players are Clemson offensive tackle Isaiah Battle, West Georgia edge rusher Darrius Caldwell, Houston defensive end Eric Eiland, Connecticut tight end Sean McQuillan, Kansas defensive back Kevin Short, West Georgia defensive tackle Dalvon Stuckey and North Carolina Central wideout and returner Adrian Wilkins.

Of the seven, only Battle is viewed as a surefire selection.

He'd be the first player selected in the Supplemental Draft since the Cleveland Browns invested a second round pick in wide receiver Josh Gordon.

The 6-foot-7, 290 pound left tackle was characterized by one high-ranking scout as a "raw but obvious talent" and could earn interest as high as the middle rounds...

Re: 2015 NFL Supplemental Draft

Have we ever taken a pick in the supplemental draft? Battle sounds like a winner.

Re: 2015 NFL Supplemental Draft

They say Battle is a sure thing? If he is still there in rd 5 they should pull the trigger seeing our depth at o-line.

Re: 2015 NFL Supplemental Draft

Battle would probably be a 3rd rounder in the draft, so it will likely cost a team a 4th or 5th rounder in the supplemental draft. A team has to feel getting the player this year is worth the pick in next year's draft. Someone will gamble with Battle. The supplemental draft is a big game of chicken, though, so you never know where someone will go.

How does the supplemental draft work?

Teams with six wins or less participate in the first lottery for the top supplemental draft picks. The team that posted the worst record among that group is given a weighted advantage over the following team, with each team's "weight" being decreased on down the line until reaching the team with the best record in the group.
The second group consists of non-playoff teams and follows the same weighted system.
The third group consists of last season's 12 playoff teams and, again, follows the same lottery system.
After the order is determined, each team submits to the league the name of the player(s) they are interested in, as well as the round of the supplemental draft they would like to choose them in. The team that submits the highest bid is awarded rights to the player. If more than one team bids a pick from the same round, the team with the highest pick in the round wins out.

If a team uses a pick in the Supplemental Draft, they must forfeit their choice in the corresponding round of the next years NFL Draft.

So, it's a blind draft. You decide which player you want and what round pick you are willing to use to get him. If you have the highest bid you get him but surrender that round pick in next year's draft.

Re: 2015 NFL Supplemental Draft

There's no reason to take Battle... We just used the #13 pick on a tackle who won't be starting this year. Our depth on the O-Line is fine.
