Tomorrow at 1 p.m. Eastern, the 2019 NFL Supplemental Draft will take place by email with the front offices of each NFL team, and there are a few good players available for the taking this year. The list is headlined by Washington State’s star safety Jalen Thompson, who in 39 career games in Pullman tallied 191 total tackles, 23 passes defensed, six interceptions and a pair of forced fumbles. He is a legit early-round prospect and it will be interesting to see where Thompson goes tomorrow. The Packers, among other teams, have already worked him out.
Joining Thompson in the Supplemental Draft are Wrest Virginia WR Marcus Simms, Syracuse LB Shyheim Cullen, Northland (Minn.) TE Devonaire Clarington, and St. Francis DB Bryant Perry. However, it’s likely that only Thompson and Simms will be selected.
If a team selects a player in the Supplemental draft, they forfeit their pick in the following year’s regular NFL Draft in the round in which they used their supplemental draft pick. A team is able to select a player or choose to not use any of their supplemental picks. Last year, the New York Giants selected Sam Beal in the third supplemental round while the Washington Indigenous Persons took DB Adonis Alexander in the sixth, giving up those picks in this year’s regular draft.
The Raiders have most recently used a supplemental pick in 2011, taking Terrelle Pryor in the third round.
