The 2011 NFL Supplemental Draft was held on Monday afternoon, and the only player selected was former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor. The Oakland Raiders submitted a third-round pick for Pryor, meaning they will lose a third-rounder in the 2012 NFL Draft.â†µ
Because Pryor was the only player selected in the Supplemental Draft, the other five players who were eligible to be picked are now free agents. They are running back Caleb King (Georgia), defensive end Keenan Mace (Lindenwood), defensive end Mike McAdoo (North Carolina), defensive back Torez Jones (Western Carolina) and defensive back Tracy Wilson (Northern Illinois).â†µ
Of those players, the Detroit Lions are known to have shown some interest in only King. According to a report, they had a meeting with King as scouting for the Supplemental Draft commenced.â†µ
Because the Lions are dealing with so many injuries at running back -- Jahvid Best has a concussion, Mikel Leshoure is out for the year and Maurice Morris is just now back after breaking his hand -- it would not be surprising if they sign King as an undrafted free agent.â†µ
UPDATE: King signed with the Vikings, so scratch that possibility off the list.
