The supplemental draft, is there anyone in there for us?

Recommended Posts

I see that a couple of secondary players are entering it. I was wondering if either of them could be of help to us or if there is any other player(s) that could be of use, someone like a OL.

Now that I think about it, could there be anyone worthwhile in the CFL as well. I can’t believe that out of a whole league that there can’t be a prospect or two out of there. WR and OL is what I’m hoping the Bills will scour for.

The CFL is cracking down on players under contract from moving to the NFL.

Here is an article about it.

The Supplemental draft is designed to give underclassmen -- who did not petition the NFL for early entry before the draft deadline but find themselves ineligible for the upcoming college season -- a way to enter the league. The supplemental draft is held after the traditional NFL draft and before each season begins.

Bryant ran a 4.24 and deadlifts 600 pounds.  We could use secondary depth

What makes them ineligible for the upcoming college season if they are underclassmen?

Any NCAA rules or disqualifications.  Could be as simple as failing grades.

So essentially the supplemental draft is for underclassmen that aren't keeping up with their studies or who are not welcome back at their college for rule breaches....

 

Sounds like the high character, lunch pail guys that McBeane craves..

Yes. which is why since 2013 there has only been 1 player selected.

WR would be a fantastic need to fill but I only have heard about that CB that's available. I wouldn't mind using a high non-1st round pick on a CB if that player would have been a 1st round prospect had he declared or been able to declare. Corner isn't a huge need but outside of White I am not too enthused about what this team has. Vonta is a good reclamation project but coming off some injuries and only on a one year deal. There really isn't a proven nickel corner on the team either.

When after the regular springtime draft circumstances lead to one or more college players being ruled ineligible to continue to play college ball, (whether due to academics, disciplinary issues or whatever) the league typically holds a supplemental draft to provide a controlled means of incorporating those players into the league rather than letting them become free agents or forcing them to sit until the following year's draft.

Beal is supposed to be decent and was projected to be a top CB in 2019.

Brandon Bryant certainly has the athleticism to catch your attention.  He had a DUI arrest in January and had academic problems this spring.  That's why he applied for the supplemental draft.  Those are minor red flag issues, but not necessarily deal breakers.  The real attention getter is the fact that in timed runs he has consistently been under 4.3 in the 40 yard dash.  He's very strong and is listed anywhere for 205 to 215 lbs.  It would be interesting to know if he has the skill set to play CB too (can backpedal, flip his hips, and track the ball while staying with a receiver).

Yes.. I think others in the thread explained the same thing earlier...

WR - Davaris Daniels (son of Phillip Daniels) was a great prospect at Notre Dame during their title game season as a freshman. Then had academic issues and got booted. Great hands and body control. Good size. He's with someone in Canada last I knew.

 

ND Highlights -

He couldn't get the necessary credits from school before being labeled ineligible. He is a player I'd pursue and give up a 2nd round pick for, he could very well have been a 1st rounder in next years draft.

Yeah it would have sucked to get Josh Gordon.

 

The Bills should use a 4th on Beal (although I doubt that gets it done). The Bills have 2 4ths next year. Maybe they can steal the long-term starter opposite Tre?

using a first round pick for me is a non starter.   if Beal somehow fell in to round 2 i would jump on it.  The Bills will be using a high pick on a corner next year in my opinion .  Why not get the player in here a year earlier.

In all fairness, Gordon's troubles have been well documented and he's appeared in just 49 of 80 games.  Aside from a monster season in 2013, he hasn't been very impactful.

I get that Gordon is an athletic freak but if we drafted a guy in the 2nd round who averaged 6 games, 29 catches and 2 touchdowns a year for us he would be run out of town.
