The NFL supplemental draft typical comes and goes without much fanfare and this year was without exception. The Detroit Lions, along with the NFL’s 31 other teams, passed rather than take a chance on any of the four players who were declared eligible.
New Mexico Wide receiver Chase Clayton, North Carolina linebacker Darius Lipford, Virginia-Lynchburg defensive tackle LaKendrick Ross and SMU running back Traylon Shead are now free to sign with any team as an undrafted free agent. Any team who makes a supplemental selection forfeits their pick in the corresponding round the next spring.
Kent Platte profiled Chase Clayton and Traylon Shead as possible Lions targets in the supplemental draft or free agents if you’re interested in additional reading on a couple of the prospects.
