NEW YORK (AP) – None of the four eligible players were taken in the NFL’s supplemental draft Thursday.
League spokesman Michael Signora says in an email that all four players – New Mexico receiver Chase Clayton, North Carolina linebacker Darius Lipford, Virginia-Lynchburg defensive tackle Lakendrick Ross and SMU running back Traylon Shead – went undrafted and are now free agents.
The supplemental draft allows qualified underclassmen who did not request early entry into the regular draft to have a chance at entering the NFL. Teams submit picks and are awarded players if their bid — for which round they would take that player — is highest. Teams then lose the corresponding pick in next year’s draft
