Here are the 2 players eligible for the NFL Supplemental Draft
Pop quiz….when is this years NFL Supplemental Draft? Exactly. The 2017 Supplemental Draft is quickly approaching, July 12th to be exact.
The supplemental draft includes players whose draft eligibility status has changed since the regular draft in April. Teams that select a player in the supplemental draft lose a draft choice in the corresponding round of the next year’s NFL draft.
Last year, six players were available in the supplemental draft, but none were selected. The last player selected in the supplemental draft was Clemson OL Isaiah Battle, a fifth-round choice of the Rams in 2015 who has not appeared in an NFL regular-season game and is currently with the Chiefs.
This year, two players will be eligible to be drafted…Georgia Military College DL Tavares Bingham and Western New Mexico RB Marques Rodgers.
Rodgers rushed for 1,283 yards and 10 touchdowns on 217 carries for WNMU in 2015, and caught 61 passes as one of the top offensive threats in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference. He was academically ineligible to play for WNMU last year, and entered the supplemental draft with one year of college eligibility remaining, according to the school.
Bingham (6-4, 290) exhausted his junior college playing eligibility after the 2015 season. He redshirted one year and played another at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, then transferred to GMC for his final junior college season. Academic problems prevented him from signing with a four-year school for 2016, per GMC coach Bert Williams.
It is likely that neither of these players will be selected either, and will automatically be able to sign as undrafted free agents with the team of their choosing.https://www.myfantasysportstalk.com/here-are-the-2-players-eligible-for-the-nfl-supplemental-draft/https://i2.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/Marques-Rodgers-Western-New-Mexico.jpg?fit=933%2C622&ssl=1https://i2.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/Marques-Rodgers-Western-New-Mexico.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1NFLNFL DraftRecent PostsNFL,nfl supplemental draft,Supplemental DraftPop quiz....when is this years NFL Supplemental Draft?
