Supplemental Draft results 2015: No picks for Lions

As expected, the Detroit Lions did not select any players in this year's Supplemental Draft.

The 2015 NFL Supplemental Draft took place on Thursday, and the Detroit Lions did not select any players during the event. This has been the case for the Lions every single year since 1982 (when the Lions drafted Kevin Robinson with a future ninth-round pick), so it isn't exactly a huge surprise or anything.

Across the rest of the NFL, the St. Louis Rams selected Clemson offensive tackle Isaiah Battle with a fifth-round pick. This means that the Rams will lose a fifth-round pick in 2016, but they will get to immediately add Battle, who seemingly drew quite a bit of interest leading up to the Supplemental Draft.

As for the other six players who were eligible for the Supplemental Draft, they are now undrafted free agents:

  • WR/KR Adrian Wilkins (North Carolina Central)
  • TE Sean McQuillan (Connecticut)
  • DE Eric Eiland (Houston)
  • DE Darrius Caldwell (West Georgia)
  • DT Dalvon Stuckey (West Georgia)
  • CB Kevin Short (Kansas)

We know that the Lions attended the pro days for WilkinsMcQuillanCaldwell and Stuckey, so it's entirely possible that one of these players will sign with Detroit as an undrafted free agent. After all, the Lions have an open roster spot, and it could make sense for them to add one of these guys to the mix before training camp begins in August.
