NFL Supplemental Draft 2013 results: Lions don't select any players

New, comments

As expected, the Detroit Lions didn't select any players in the 2013 NFL Supplemental Draft.

The 2013 NFL Supplemental Draft has been completed without any picks being made. None of the six eligible players were able to interest a team enough for them to spend a future draft pick. As a result, the following six players are now free agents: 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).

Although the Detroit Lions decided against picking any of these players, it's possible they could attempt to sign one or two of them as undrafted free agents. Smith, in particular, could potentially get an offer to join the Lions considering the team has now seen him work out twice. The Green Bay Packers are his most likely landing spot, though, as he tried to sign with them after the 2013 NFL Draft back in April.

The Lions could also decide to bring in Peace or Ross if they opt to add a wide receiver. That position is far from set for the Lions, and perhaps they will make the decision that one of them is worth a look in training camp.

With the Lions not making any picks on Thursday, their streak of sitting out the supplemental draft is still alive. The Lions haven't made a pick in the supplemental draft since they selected defensive back Kevin Robinson in 1982.
