Well, since I mentioned it earlier and wasn't sure how many players were actually available in this year's Supplemental Draft, it's only right that I point out that Tom Pelissero has given us the answer.
Apparently NFL teams have been told that there are eight players eligible for selection in the NFL's 2012 Supplemental Draft. Those players are as follows:
-Quaylon Ewing-Burton, DB, Boise State
-Josh Gordon, WR, Baylor
-Adam Harris, RB, Syracuse
-Adrian Haughton, OT, Iowa State
-Larry Lumpkin, LB, Carson-Newman
-Montez Robinson, DE, Georgia
-Houston Tuminello, WR, McMurray
-Ed Wesley, RB, Texas Christian
I'll be honest with you, folks. . .I don't know a hell of a lot about any of these players. According to Pelissero, Gordon is the biggest name in the class. He's a 6'4", 220-pound receiver that started out at Baylor. As a sophomore, he had 42 catches for 714 yards and seven touchdowns. He then left Baylor after an arrest and transferred to Utah. He sat out the 2011 season in accordance with transfer rules, but has now left the Utes program as well.
I'm not sure how much there is to get excited about here, but if anyone can shed any light on any of these players, that would be great. The league has said no other applications would be accepted, so this is your list.
Pelissero also points out that it has been nearly a quarter of a century since the Vikings got involved in the supplemental draft. The last time they did so was to bid a fifth-round pick on South Carolina receiver Ryan Bethea in 1988. Bethea never appeared in a regular season game for Minnesota.
