No players selected in NFL Supplemental Draft

Bernie Kosar and Josh Gordon remain the only Browns to ever be selected in the supplemental draft.

If you blinked today, then you probably missed the 2017 NFL Supplemental Draft. As we noted a couple of days ago, the draft took place today. Let’s check in with ESPN’s Adam Schefter to see if anyone made a selection.

It’s not surprising news, as the two players in it — RB Marques Rodgers (Western New Mexico) and DL Tavares Bingham (Georgia Military College) — were not expected to be drafted. Both players are now free agents, though, so any team can opt to take a flier on either guy with no risk other than clearing a roster space if they are already at 90 players.

The last player to be selected in a supplemental draft was OL Isaiah Battle in 2015 when the Rams used a 5th round pick on him. The supplemental draft is always semi-big news in Cleveland because of the team’s history with it — it’s how they obtained QB Bernie Kosar in 1985 and then WR Josh Gordon in 2012.
