The Raiders landed quarterback Terrelle Pryor in the supplemental draft in 2011. The Cleveland Browns scored a direct hit in the supplemental draft with wide receiver Josh Gordon last year. On Thursday, we’ll find out whether the Raiders or any other teams jumps at the players available in this year’s proceeding.
Teams that select a player in the supplemental draft forfeit a draft pick in the following regular draft in the corresponding round.
For example, the Raiders selected Pryor in the third round of the supplemental draft. Therefore, they surrendered their third-round pick in the 2012 NFL regular draft.
Here’s a list of the six players eligible for selection in this year’s supplemental draft:
UN-Las Vegas defensive end James Boyd, Central Florida defensive end Toby Jackson, UNLV defensive tackle Nate Holloway, University of Houston wide receiver DeWayne Peace, Purdue receiver O.J. Ross and South Alabama defensive back Damond Smith.
