Raiders don't make supplemental draft selection, six prospects remain

As expected, Clemson offensive tackle was the only player chosen in the 2015 supplemental draft. He went to the St Louis Rams with the 8th pick in the fifth round. There were a total of seven players who declared for the draft. Here are the remaining players along with scouting reports from SB Nation's Dan Kadar:

Dalvon Stuckey, DT, West Georgia: The consistent theme of Stuckey's college career is academics holding him back. He was meant to be part of the same 2012 recruiting class that sent quarterback Jameis Winston to Florida State, but Stuckey failed to qualify. He spent two years at Pearl River Community College and intended to go to Arizona State. He was rated as the No. 8 junior college player by ESPN in the 2014 class, but failed to qualify academically with the Sun Devils. That sent him to Division II West Georgia where he had 40 tackles, 9.5 tackles for loss and four sacks last season.

Darrius Caldwell, DE, West Georgia: Caldwell was also expected to go from Pearl River to Arizona State, but like Stuckey academics forced him to West Georgia. He initially signed with Illinois out of high school. Caldwell had 12 sacks for West Georgia last season. Considering his production and positional value, Caldwell is fringe pickable. His pro day numbers last week - a 5.07 40-yard dash and six bench press reps - do him no favors.

Eric Eiland, LB, Houston: At Houston Eiland played as a stand-up pass end last season, starting 10 games. He had 44 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss and a half a sack. If he sticks in the NFL, it will likely be on special teams.

Sean McQuillan, TE, Connecticut: McQuillan, 6'3 and 247 pounds, finished last season with 16 receptions for 158 yards and a touchdown in 11 starts. In April, he was charged with assault for his involvement in a fight.

Kevin Short, CB, Kansas: Short may get some attention as a 6'2 cornerback, but it's hard to get overly excited about someone who hasn't played in a game since 2012. Short started his college career at Fort Scott Community College before committing to Kansas for the 2013 season. He redshirted that year and was academically ineligible in 2014. He had 10 interceptions in two seasons at Fort Scott.

Adrian Wilkins, WR, North Carolina Central: Wilkins has made his name as a return specialist. He averaged 24.7 on kick returns and 13.6 yards on punt returns.

All of these prospects may be signed as undrafted free agents. The Raiders attended the pro days for the two West Georgia players as well as Connecticut tight end Sean McQuillan.
