With so many teams that are flush with draft picks every year, it does beg the question why wouldn't a team take a chance on players in the supplemental draft.


Seems like only a few players have been taken in the supplemental draft, period. If you would take that guy in the 6th round in a normal draft, then why don't you pull the trigger? It's not as if most teams couldn't find a roster spot, or practiice squad.

Makes one wonder if there isn't some sort of silent collusion, that they aren't going to turn the supplemental draft into a viable path - you've got to be really good and have a really good reason for being there to get picked.

I know everybody throws out those famous supplemental draft picks like Chris Carter and Bernie Kosar and Josh Gordon but there were many other quality picks too over the years.

Jamaal Williams, NT, San Diego's long time starter in the middle. I know I may be in the minority but I always thought he was better than Casey Hampton. 350 pounder who was just as stout as Hampton against the run but also got a great push as a pass rusher and always seemed to get his hands up to tip passes and was better at occasionally dropping into coverage ( 19 passes defensed). SD spent a 2nd round pick on him.

Rob Moore, WR, Jets spent a 1st on him, he was a two time Pro Bowler ended 10 year career with 628 catches and nearly 9,400 yards, made the Pro Bowl once for the Jets and once for Arizona. For the Cards he had a monster 97 catch, 1548 yards, 8 TD year.

Mike Wahle, G, Green Bay, they spent a 2nd round pick on him, he played 11 years, made the Pro Bowl with Carolina

Ahmad Brooks, OLB, Cincy, They spent a 3rd round pick on him, but he went to the 49ers later and in 8 years with them had 51.5 sacks and made the Pro Bowl.

Bobby Humphrey, RB, Denver, he did have two back to back 1,000 yard seasons, made the Pro Bowl his second year but then held out his 3rd season and then was traded to Miami, played one year and was out of the NFL. A weird player. I always thought that him holding out, wanting more money was just crazy for the time, this was before the changes in free agency in 1993. In hindsight, if he had just played out his original contract with Denver he probably could have been one of the first players to cash in on free agency in 93.

So, it is possible to find Pro Bowl caliber players in the supplemental draft.
