This time last year, the Dallas Cowboys were reportedly taking a long, hard look at Baylor wide receiver Josh Gordon as an option in the league’s supplemental draft, but they never really got close to him. Dallas reportedly had a fourth round bid on Gordon, while the Cleveland Browns scooped him up in the second.
This year, the team might not even get that close to being players in the supplemental draft, scheduled for this Thursday.
Bryan Broaddus of DallasCowboys.com writes this week that from all he’s gathered, the Cowboys don’t really have any interest in throwing their hat in the ring for any of the names out there.
(Last time Dallas did land a player via the supplemental draft, it was defensive lineman Josh Brent in 2010.)
“(UNLV defensive end Josh) Boyd and (Houston receiver DeWayne) Peace are interesting names and this front office has had a history of working this part of the draft with guys like Brent and Gordon in the past, but don't look for the Cowboys to be a part of this draft when it takes place. They have studied the names and have an understanding of each player but will not use a pick to select them.”
