The NFL’s supplemental draft was held this afternoon, and for the second conscutive year, no players were selected.
Four players were eligible this year: Chase Clayton, wide receiver out of New Mexico; Lakendrick Ross, defensive end out of Virginia-Lynchburg; Darius Lipford, linebacker out of North Carolina; and Traylon Shead (pictured), running back out of SMU.
The Dallas Cowboys were one of nine teams to attend Shead’s Pro Day on July 2, according to his agent, but opted against potentially sacrificing a common draft (the one in May) pick next year to put in a bid. The last time the team used the supplemental draft was 2010, when they took nose tackle Josh Brent in the seventh round.
Controversial wide receiver Josh Gordon, picked by the Browns in the second round of in 2012, remains the last player to be selected in the supplemental draft.
