2014 NFL Supplemental Draft set for Thursday

Leon Halip

Four players are eligible to be picked in the 2014 NFL Supplemental Draft, which is set to take place on Thursday.

We're in the middle of the quietest part of the NFL offseason right now. OTAs and minicamps have been finished for nearly a month now, and training camp is still a couple weeks away. With players on "vacation" until practice begins later this month, this is one of the rare times where not much is happening in the world of the NFL.

Although it remains to be seen if anybody will actually be picked, there could be some real news on Thursday, as the 2014 NFL Supplemental Draft is scheduled for that day (July 10). It's going to take place behind the scenes at 1 p.m. ET, and Ian Rapoport reports that four players are eligible to be picked this year:

  • RB Traylon Shead (SMU)
  • WR Chase Clayton (New Mexico)
  • DT Lakendrick Ross (Virginia-Lynchburg)
  • LB Darius Lipford (North Carolina)

The Detroit Lions haven't picked a player in the NFL Supplemental Draft since they took defensive back Kevin Robinson in 1982. That streak should continue this year, as none of the four players who are eligible seem likely to be picked by the Lions. At this point, they don't necessarily need the extra depth at running back, wide receiver, defensive tackle or linebacker, and none of these players seem worthy of giving up a 2015 draft pick. It would be pretty surprising if the Lions submit a pick in this year's Supplemental Draft.
