The 2013 NFL Supplemental Draft came and went with little fanfare or attention on Thursday. Although six players were eligible to be supplemental draft selections, none of the NFL’s 32 teams selected any players in any of the supplemental draft’s seven rounds.
The six players eligible for selection were UNLV defensive end James Boyd and defensive tackle Nate Holloway, UCF defensive end Toby Jackson, Houston wide receiver Dewayne Peace, Purdue wide receiver O.J. Ross and South Alabama cornerback Damond Smith.
The outcome was unsurprising. When an NFL team uses a supplemental draft selection, they forfeit their pick in the corresponding round of the following year’s draft. Had these players been eligible for the regular 2013 NFL Draft in April, it is unlikely any of them would have been selected.
