NFL Supplemental Draft 2013: No players selected

Bob Levey

Proceed with your Thursday as scheduled.

The NFL Supplemental Draft came and went Thursday with no players selected, the league office announced.

The Supplemental Draft is held each year to accommodate players who did not enter the April draft, usually because a player's NCAA eligibility was somehow compromised or threatened between the entry deadline for the April draft and July's Supplemental Draft.

Six players were eligible in Thursday's Supplemental Draft: UNLV defensive end James Boyd, UNLV defensive tackle Nate Holloway, Central Florida defensive end Toby Jackson, Houston wide receiver DeWayne Peace, Purdue wide receiver O.J. Ross and South Alabama defensive back Damond Smith.

Teams are not required to make selections in the Supplemental Draft. Teams submit bids to the league office saying who they would like to select and in what round; if a team wins a bid, it forfeits its pick in the corresponding round of the next year's April draft.

This is the first Supplemental Draft since 2008 in which no players were selected. Baylor's Josh Gordon was the only player taken in last year's edition. He went in the second round to the Cleveland Browns and had 805 receiving yards and five touchdowns for the Browns as a rookie.

Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor was a third-round selection of the Oakland Raiders in the 2011 Supplemental Draft.
