The 2012 NFL Supplemental Draft has come and gone and only one player was selected despite the eight player prospect pool. Josh Gordon went in the second round to the Cleveland Browns in a surprising move that was one round higher than what most draft analysts had him listed. That also means that names like Ed Wesley, running back from TCU, and Larry Lumpkin, linebacker from Carson-Newman, are available to sign with any team.
Lumpkin and Wesley were the players that most NFL writers believed would come next off of the board if anyone were to be taken, but that was not to be. That's not surprising since there have only been 41 players taken in the previous 35 years of the Supplemental Draft. Most players come with risks that teams are averse to taking, so Wesley and Lumpkin and the rest of the class will have to sign on as undrafted free agents.
