NFL Supplemental Draft Has New Name: Georgia RB Caleb King

The 2011 NFL supplemental draft is expected to happen at some point -- no date has been set -- and when it does it appears there will be two names involved. We already knew Ohio State QB Terrelle Pryor has entered his name but now a report comes that Georgia RB Caleb King will also be entering.

In a statement last week, Georgia football head coach Mark Richt confirmed King would be academically ineligible for the 2011 season. So his options were to transfer to a FCS school to continue playing or apply for the NFL's supplemental draft -- he chose the latter.

What are King's NFL prospects like?

Not great, according to SB Nation's Mocking The Draft, who projects him as a seventh round pick.

Solely as a supplemental draft prospect, King probably carries a seventh-round grade due to his size and potential. At 5-foot-11 and 217 pounds, King has the size of an NFL back and runs with good pad level. He's a good zone scheme option because of his quickness.

The NFL supplemental draft is a little different than the regular draft in that a team will submit a bid (like a silent auction) and whoever has the lowest bid will win the rights to the player and forfeit that draft spot in the 2012 draft.
