Supplemental Draft to be held August 17

Posted on: August 8, 2011 5:18 pm
 
The NFL has informed its 32 teams that this summer's supplemental draft will be held August 17, according to a source within the league.  

No names of eligible players were included as part of the notice. Furthermore, teams were not notified as to when the draft order will be determined. The only information sent at this time, according to the source, was the date of the draft. 

The supplemental draft typically occurs on or around July 15, approximately 10 days prior to the start of training camps. This year, however, the date was pushed back due to the lockout.

Former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor and Georgia running back Caleb King are thought likely to be among those included. North Carolina defensive end Michael McAdoo, who was suspended for the 2011 season due to academics, is also thought to be considering a request to be included in the draft.

The supplemental draft was originally created for players who had lost their eligibility to play collegiate football between the regular April draft and the beginning of the next season. Many "special case" players had lost their eligibility due to academics or legal troubles.

Unlike the televised April draft, the supplemental is carried out via e-mail among teams. The teams, slotted into three groups based on their won/loss percentage the year previous, contact the league with a list of the players they'd draft and the round in which they'd take them. As such, while the Carolina Panthers owned the first pick of the 2011 draft, they are not guaranteed to have the first pick in this draft.
