2012 NFL Supplemental Draft Set For July 12; Former Boise St. DB Quaylon Ewing Eligible - SB Nation Denver
Boise State DB Quaylon Ewing, Baylor WR Josh Gordon, Syracuse RB Adam Harris, Iowa State T Adrian Haughton, Carson-Newman LB Larry Lumpkin, Georgia DE Montez Robinson, McMurray WR Houston Tuminello, and TCU RB Ed Wesley.
Ayso is a .sig genius!!
Josh Gordon is an intriguing player at the WR position and think he could fit into the lineup, yet I have a feeling that the Dolphins or someone in desperate need for a WR will use an earlier pick than Reggie would even attempt.
Ed Wesley if there with a 6th or 7th rounder would be worth a look because you can never have enough RBs especially with Knapp wanting to run. Unlike many people who come out in the supplemental draft he isn't doing it because of legal issues or bad grades, no, from what I've read he seems to be looking for money to take care of his ailing mother.
Reggie likes his draft picks and might not be willing to part with one for any of those guys.
But it's looking like we're going to either cut or let a good WR go to the PS this year. Just can't see spending yet another (future) pick on a WR. I was wondering if McKenzie might be interested in picking up a RB in the supplemental draft. Do you know if we get some sort of cap compensation if we take somebody in the supplemental draft? I guess that wouldn't make a lot of sense - he'd have to fit in just like everybody else.

The RB is a different story. With the minimum salary being used it shouldn't change the money that's already counting towards our cap. This is taking into account the top 51 salary rule which uses the mindset that only the top 51 salaries on the team count against the cap until rosters are finalized. I don't see anything about supplemental pick's monetary value anywhere, yet I assume it wouldn't be much above an UDFA or a regular low-end draft pick. I don't know if it will happen, for the reason we've talked about, but using a 7th rounder to give Wesley a chance to make the roster could be a good move and give us more youth, depth, competition and talent at RB.

Heard reliably that there's no chance Josh Gordon will get past 3rd round of Supp Draft. One NFC East team will take him if he's there.
word on Josh Gordon has been that he would have graded out to be be better than both Brian Quick and Stephen Hill had he been available in April's draft.
he's got a red flag with getting dismissed from the team, but on more than one occasion i've seen him compared to Demaryius Thomas.
from ESPN:Former Baylor wide receiver Josh Gordon, who has declared for Thursday's supplemental draft, is scheduled to hold his pro day on Tuesday at the Houston Texans' training facility, according to a league source.
Multiple NFL teams are expected to attend, and the 6-foot-3, 225-pound Gordon is expected to be timed in the 40-yard dash in the 4.4s or better.
A source told ESPN.com's James Walker the Buffalo Bills will attend Gordon's workout.
One NFL scout said Gordon could go as high as the second round, and he is considered a rare talent as far as supplemental drafts go.
Gordon spent last season out of football after Baylor dismissed him from the team in August 2011. Gordon then transferred to Utah but had to leave the school for the supplemental draft for financial reasons.
No surprise there. I've seen multiple sources (some scouts and others from Baylor) that they liked Gordon better than Kendall Wright (who was drafted #20 overall by the Titans) as a WR and potential star.
NFL College Draft Russ Lande | Russ Lande: NFL Player AnalystOff 2010 film he showed better hands and run after catch ability than Kendall Wright who was drafted in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft. Gordon definitely needs to improve his route running, but in terms of pure physical talent he is very gifted and has the talent to be a highly productive NFL receiver. Overall, had Gordon played at Baylor in 2011 he likely could have come out early and been a first or second round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.
Source: NFC team assigns Josh Gordon third-round grade | ProFootballTalkThe source also says high-ranking people at Baylor believed Gordon was a superior player to Kendall Wright during both receiversí time in Waco. Wright was drafted with the 20th overall pick by the Titans this year.
Could really use a big body guy like that; too bad it'll never happen.
Rob Rang's write up about RB Wesley's Pro Day. Would hope that if he doesn't get drafted that Reggie is calling right away to offer him a spot for camp.
Despite reports otherwise, RB Wesley looked 'athletic' at Pro Day - CBSSports.com
Supplemental draft prospect Gordon runs 4.52 forty at Pro Day | ProFootballTalk
(edit) Oh... and meant to say: I have to wonder if the Raiders were one of the 21. Hope not, but... (/edit)While the forty time isnít quite as good as the pre-Pro Day hype might have suggested, itís still very fast for a human being who weighs over 220 pounds. Gordon is big, and he can run.
At least one NFL scout has described Gordon as a ďrare talent as far as supplemental drafts go.Ē We donít expect him to get out of the third round.

Carson-Newman linebacker Larry Lumpin will workout tomorrow.
Scout.com: Larry Lumpkin ProfileAmong the NFL teams have made inquiries about Lumpkin and will likely attend his workout, according to his agent, Chris Martin of OTG Sports: the Baltimore Ravens, Kansas City Chiefs, Indianapolis Colts, Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns, St. Louis Rams, Seattle Seahawks, Denver Broncos, New Orleans Saints, Washington Redskins, Chicago Bears, Jacksonville Jaguars, Miami Dolphins, Green Bay Packers, Arizona Cardinals, Oakland Raiders, Carolina Panthers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Houston Texans.
I hope Reggie at least sent people to check out Josh Gordon....not expecting him to draft him though.
More news though:
Adam Caplan | Profile on Sulia
Those other two teams are the Raiders and Panthers according to Caplan's tweets.For those who have been asking all day about it, here's the updated list of teams that were in attendance at Gordon's workout : #Browns, #Eagles, #Cowboys, #Bears, #Seahawks, #Dolphins, #Chiefs, #Colts, #49ers, #Redskins, #Bills, #Texans, #Patriots, #Vikings, #Saints, #Jets, #nyg, #Rams, Cardinals. If I get the other two, I'll update.
To go along with the above quote I'm listening to an interview with Caplan on Bull & Fox talking about the Brown's specifically, but he references the struggles Gordon could have with adjusting to the WCO and how much that could affect the impact he could really have in his first year. That he may really need time to develop, considering he's been out of football for almost 2 years now. He also talked about how Gordon could really benefit from having a proven (read: veteran) receiver to help him in the transition.For those trying to figure out where Gordon fits in at the next level: Strictly an outside WR. Not a 3rd down possession/slot WR. You don't waste his talent playing him inside. So, if you're trying to figure out where he would fit in, look at the outside WRs for the teams with the biggest need for upside. #Browns, etc. With the Browns, however, he would have to learn WCO routes. Way different from Baylor.
