The 2012 NFL Supplemental Draft is set for July 12. Will any of the eight eligible players be selected?
The NFL announced on Monday afternoon that the Supplemental Draft will take place on Thursday, July 12, at 11:00 a.m. MT. The draft will be conducted electronically. All bids are blind. As an example, in 2011 former Ohio St. quarterback Terrelle Pryor entered the Supplemental Draft and the Oakland Raiders submitted a draft selection for him. It turned out to be a third-round pick, which the team forfeited in the 2012 NFL Draft.
This year, there will be eight players eligible to be drafted:
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.
Quaylon Ewing was dismissed from the Boise State team back in January for failure to "live up to the standards of the program," according to Brian Murphy of the Idaho Statesman.
