Not that I see. Other than Pryor there is no interest.

Not worth drafting!!! King and McAdoo were both very highly recruited HS players and probably will get a look from someone. I wouldn't spend a pick on them though. Wouldn't touch Pryor till the 5th.

I've heard McAdoo may have big potential as a pass rusher.

Seems he could have more upside than most 7th rounders next year. And if we got him for a 7th, it would give him a year on the PS to see what he could do.

Terrelle Pryor was only pick in supplemental draft

Former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor was the first pick in this year’s supplemental draft, taken by the Oakland Raiders with a third-round choice.

As it turned out, Pryor was also the only pick in this year’s supplemental draft.

The supplemental draft is now over, and no one else was selected. That makes the other five players who were eligible (Western Carolina defensive back Torez Jones, Georgia running back Caleb King, Lindenwood defensive end Keenan Mace, North Carolina defensive end Mike McAdoo and Northern Illinois defensive back Tracy Wilson) free agents.

King and McAdoo were both considered decent prospects who had a chance of being drafted, but if not a single NFL team thought either one of them had enough upside to be worth even a 2012 seventh-round pick, that doesn’t speak well for their chances of making it in the NFL.

Gotta think the Cardinals will be sniffing around King. They only have 3 RBs on the entire roster last I saw --- rookie Ryan Williams is done for the season, and LaRod S-H is a smurf. That leaves Beanie Wells as the only back of significance. I imagine they'll be trying to bring in anyone with a pulse and a pair of cleats.

How many seasons have they been doing this supplemental draft ? I really don't recall this draft. Why do they have a draft like this ?

They've been doing it for several decades now. I don't know exactly when in started, but the first guy of significance that I can recall who entered the league through the supplemental draft was Bernie Kosar, so you can tell by that that it has been around for some years now. It is basically for guys who's situations have changed since the date to enter the regular draft has already passed.

I heard Chris Carter was in the supplemental draft.

I don't remember a lot of great players making it via this draft?
