The NFL's Supplemental Draft for 2015 has come and gone. Yes, if you blinked, you probably missed it. There wasn't a whole lot of excitement to be had, that's for sure.
Only one player was selected in this year's Supplemental Draft and, as expected, that player was Clemson offensive tackle Isaiah Battle. Battle wound up getting selected in the fifth round of the Supplemental Draft by the St. Louis Rams. That means the Rams will lose their fifth-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.
The other 31 teams, including the Minnesota Vikings, passed on the other six eligible players. Those players are as follows:
Darius Caldwell, defensive end, West Georgia
Eric Eiland, defensive end, Houston
Sean McQuillan, tight end, Connecticut
Kevin Short, defensive back, Kansas
Dalvon Stuckey, defensive tackle, West Georgia
Adrian Wilkins, wide receiver, North Carolina Central
As none of those players were selected, they are immediately available to all of the NFL teams as free agents. I haven't seen any word yet that would indicate that the Vikings would be interested in bringing any of them in, but you never know.
So that was the Supplemental Draft for 2015, folks. If you want to get a jump on planning, we're only about 364 days away from the 2016 Supplemental Draft. You can never start prepping too early for these things.
