The results are in...
No players were taken in this year's supplemental draft.
the one who is suspended? right?
wow, the one in the hall of fame?
and that proves my point. now we were able to get 1,2,3 for him. but as a player he was very undistinguished and flamed out very fast....
there is a reason these players get into the supplemental. else they would be in the draft or go back to school and get drafted high the year after......
and there are reasons that these guys don't declare for the draft, or are risks or don't stay in school to get drafted the year after....
so are the players in the supp draft now free agents since they weren't drafted? does this mean any team can try to sign them now? if so, we should go after Ross hard.
Saw yesterday on line he is working out for the Bungles and a few other teams (not the Cowboys). Apparently considered more of a 3-4 type. Thought they might give the LB from UNC a look or RB who went undrafted.
Cris Carter. HOF WR
thanks for making my point. one out of how many? there is high risk with giving up a premium pick for supplemental draft. I can give you a long list of picks and premium picks that didn't pan out.
unless you are a gambler or think lottery is a good option for a retirement plan.
How is that any different from the regular draft?
ok, lets go back to the beginning of my responses.
I said I wouldn't spend high draft picks on supplemental draft. I didn't say I wouldn't spend any lower round picks.
most often the supplemental draft is for those who probably have multitude of issues that didn't qualify them for the regular draft or they didn't want to go back to school, etc.l. usually they have some kind of red flag, either academic, personal, eligibility, etc. they are not seniors, which also means there is less film on them. these are guys who choose not to go back to school.
usually the pool of draftees for the regular draft is better. either more film. they have been through combine, personal workouts, etc. its less risky, although there is always a risk with any draft, its higher risk with supplemental.
