If you missed this year’s NFL draft on April 30th, that’s alright, you might still see some players drafted in this year’s supplemental draft. Started in 1977, the supplemental draft was put in place to give prospective athletes who missed the regular draft the chance to get drafted.
In the past, players were forced to declared for the supplemental draft after being suspended for drug test failures (Josh Gordon, Baylor University), improperly signing with an agent (Cris Carter, Ohio State University), or receiving undue benefits from their university (Terrelle Pryor, Ohio State University).
This years supplemental draft will be on July 9th.

Out of the 43 players ever selected in the supplemental draft, Cris Carter is the only one to make the Hall of Fame.
Among the available players in this year’s supplemental draft class is former Clemson Tigers starting offensive lineman Isaiah Battle, who some believe could receive a call.
