No players selected in 2014 NFL Supplemental Draft

Former UNC LB Darius Lipford was one of four players eligible for the 2014 NFL Supplemental Draft.

To no one's real surprise, none of the four players available in Thursday's NFL Supplemental Draft were selected.

NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks digs deep into the game tape to evaluate college football's most talented players.

» Vic Beasley, DE, Clemson
» Bryce Petty, QB, Baylor
» Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, CB, Oregon
» Leonard Williams, DL, USC
» Jameis Winston, QB, Florida State
» Wisconsin's Gordon vs. Georgia's Gurley

It's the second year in a row that there were no supplemental picks, and each of the four players available this year -- New Mexico wide receiver Chase Clayton (6-foot-3, 202 pounds), North Carolina linebacker Darius Lipford (6-3, 255), Virginia-Lynchburg defensive tackle LaKendrick Ross (6-5, 360) and SMU running back Traylon Shead (6-2, 230) -- now becomes a free agent eligible to sign with any team.

Lipford -- who was projected to start at one outside linebacker spot for UNC this fall -- and Ross seem likely to be the most sought-after of the quartet as free agents.

There have been some star players selected in previous supplemental drafts, but there was nothing close to a sure thing in this year's event.

The supplemental draft began in 1977, and 42 players have been selected over the years.
