NFL Supplemental Draft Set for July 9

Ian Rapoport reports the Supplemental Draft has been set for July 9.

The Supplemental Draft is held annually for players who missed the deadline to apply for the NFL Draft.

Teams are not required to pick any players. They are allowed to submit bids using a pick in any round. They can use a first round pick, a second round pick, a third round pick, and so forth all the way through the seventh round on a player. The team that makes the highest bid is awarded that player but forfeits that pick in the next season's NFL Draft.

For example, when the Browns used a second round pick to take Josh Gordon in the 2012 Supplemental Draft, they lost their 2013 second rounder.

NFL.com notes some of the pro days for the highest touted prospects.

Rapoport reports that West Georgia defensive tackle Dalvon Stuckey and defensive end Darrius Caldwell will have their pro days Thursday on West Georgia's campus, in Carrollton, with 20 NFL teams slated to attend. Meanwhile, North Carolina Central wide receiver Adrian Wilkins will hold his pro day July 8 on campus, in Durham.

There has been no word on a pro day for Clemson offensive tackle Isaiah Battle, who is the best prospect available in the supplemental draft. Battle is the only FBS prospect who has declared; North Carolina Central is a FCS school and West Georgia is a Division II program.
