NFL Supplemental Draft Start Time
The NFL’s Supplemental Draft is today. NFL teams will be bidding 2013 draft picks on players that for one reason or another, were not eligible for the 2012 NFL draft in April.
It’s April in July!
Here are the details:

Where can I get live coverage?
Arrowhead Addict of course. We’ll run a live thread just in case the Chiefs get frisky.
Will any players be selected?
Probably at least one.
How many players are in the draft?
10. They are:
Boise State DB Quaylon Ewing, Syracuse FB Adam Harris, Iowa State OT Adrian Haughton, Carson-Newman LB Larry Lumpkin, Georgia DE Montez Robinson, McMurray WR Houston Tuminello, Baylor WR Josh Gordon and TCU RB Ed Wesley.
Gordon is the big fish here. The former Baylor WR had 21 teams attend his Pro Day this week. He figures to be the target of some WR-needy teams and could go as early as the third round. Look for the Cleveland Browns and Washington Redskins to be the major players here. Al Davis is dead but you can never count out the Raiders.
Lumpkin and Wesley are other players who might have a shot.
The Chiefs attended Gordon’s Pro Day and reportedly made contact with Lumpkin’s camp. Lumpkin figures to be a 3-4 MLB so if the Chiefs are going to make a move this afternoon, I’d wager it would be on Larry.He stands at 6’0 even and weighs 241 pounds. He drew favorable reviews at his Pro Day and somebody could take him with a late pick.
Fair warning. The Supplemental Draft almost always turns out to be, as Scott Pioli would say, sizzle with very little substance. Don’t be shocked if Gordon is the only player taken and if the Chiefs do nothing.
