NFL Supplemental Draft 2013: Six players eligible to be picked

Sandra Dukes-US PRESSWIRE

There are six players eligible to be selected in the 2013 NFL Supplemental Draft.

The 2013 NFL Supplemental Draft will be held on Thursday, and six players are eligible to be selected, according to CBS Sports: WR Dewayne Peace (Houston), WR O.J. Ross (Purdue), DE James Boyd (UNLV), DE Toby Jackson (UCF), DT Nate Holloway (UNLV) and CB Damond Smith (South Alabama).

Perhaps the most notable name on the list for the Detroit Lions is Smith. As noted by Dave Birkett, Smith attended the Lions' local pre-draft workout back in April. He's from Inkster, and he originally began his college football career at Western Michigan.

Smith actually tried to sign with the Green Bay Packers as an undrafted free agent back in April, but a lack of eligibility for the draft prevented that from happening. Now, he will hope to be picked in the supplemental draft or added as an undrafted free agent by the Packers or some other team.

The Lions haven't made a pick in the supplemental draft since 1982, and it would be surprising if that streak ended this year. I could see the Lions adding Smith or one of the other eligible players as an undrafted free agent, but I don't expect them to spend a pick on any of them.
