Ladies and gentlemen, the most highly anticipated event of the year is finally here. That's right, it's time for the NFL's annual Supplemental Draft, which can be explained here. If you were wondering why I've taken such a long hiatus, it's because I've been deeply entrenched in my studies so that I can provide you some top notch intel in this year's Supplemental Draft.
The Supplemental Draft will take place Thursday afternoon and will start at 1 p.m. Eastern time. It is not a televised event and you can usually follow along on social media. Click here to see the list of names that are eligible this year.
Here is our detailed mock.
All 32 teams pass.
The notoriously uneventful Supplemental Draft ends with not a single player getting selected. There has been talk about teams taking a flier on Purdue defensive tackle Ra'Zahn Howard, but after an uninspiring workout in early June, his chances may be just as slim as the rest of them.
SB Nation's own Dan Kadar also lists wide receiver Rashaun Simonise as a wild card player to keep an eye on. At the University of Calgary, Simonise posted a pretty decent statline (51 receptions, 1079 yards and 11 touchdowns) and ran an impressive 40-yard dash time (somewhere between 4.42 and 4.52 seconds).
So there you have it folks. Hopefully I'll get more picks right this time around than my 2016 NFL Draft mock.
