The NFL will hold its annual Supplemental Draft on July 12. The New York Giants have not taken a player during this event since 1994, when they selected defensive back Tito Wooten. And Giants fans should remember using a first-round supplemental pick on quarterback Dave Brown in 1992.
So, the Giants do not exactly have a glorious, or extensive, history with the Supplemental Draft. Will this year be different?
Here, via NFL.com, is the list of players eligible for the Supplemental Draft:
Boise State DB Quaylon Ewing
Utah WR Josh Gordon
Syracuse RB Adam Harris
Iowa State OT Adrian Haughton
Carson-Newman LB Larry Lumpkin
Georgia DE Montez Robinson
McMurray WR Houston Tuminello
TCU RB Ed Wesley
Is there anyone on that list who interest you, Giants fans? Or, more importantly, would prod the Giants to use a Supplemental pick? Remember, use a pick in the Supplemental Draft and you forfeit an equivalent pick in the following year's regular NFL Draft.
NFL.com says that Gordon, a 6-foot-4, 225-pound wide receiver, is likely to generate the most interest. SB Nation's Mocking The Draft agrees, but adds Wesley, the TCU running back, to the list.
CBS Sports offers brief profiles of all eight players. CBS says "Gordon has tremendous speed and natural athleticism for his 6-4, 220-pound frame, but is still very rough around the edges as a receiver."
