Will Isaiah Battle be selected in Supplemental Draft?

Clemson Tigers starting offensive tackle Isaiah Battle decided to make himself eligible for the 2015 NFL Supplemental Draft later this summer for what he deemed to be “personal reasons.”

More often than not, we see players enter the supplemental draft only to go unselected.

However, Battle has the talent to change that recent trend.

At 6-foot-6, 290 pounds, Battle has some size and the talent to go along with it.  His “combination of height, arm length (35”) and easy mobility will certainly intrigue the NFL.”While he still has some work to do, CBS Sports’ Rob Rang says that “traits are there to warrant at least middle round consideration” for the former Clemson standout.

“Physically speaking, however, Battle’s combination of height, arm length (35″) and easy mobility will certainly intrigue the NFL. He is still pretty raw, showing only average functional strength at this time and too often bending at the waist rather than at the knees, which leaves him vulnerable to the bull rush and counters back to the inside,” Rang added.

Battle has played in 27 games during his time at Clemson, so it will be interesting to see what teams determine his value to be after evaluating film.

Do you think Battle is deserving of a pick in the supplemental draft? Sound off in the comments section below.
