NCCU's Adrian Wilkins entering 2015 NFL Supplemental Draft

The 2015 NFL Supplemental Draft is not going to be a one-man show.

North Carolina Central wide receiver/kick returner Adrian Wilkins became the second player to enter this year's supplemental draft, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.

The 5-foot-8, 175-pounder is mostly known for his return abilities and averaged more than 20 yards per kick return last season for the NCCU Eagles. Wilkins also added 50 catches for 540 yards and three touchdowns as a wideout. His best season might have been in 2013, though, when the speedster had five special teams touchdowns (three on kickoffs, two on punt returns) and led the team in receiving en route to first-team All-MEAC honors.

Wilkins joins West Georgia's Darrius Caldwell in the 2015 NFL Supplemental Draft.

Held in July several months after the main NFL draft, the supplemental draft allows players who did not enter or were not eligible for the regular draft to be selected by teams. Teams who select a player in the supplemental draft will lose that round's selection the following year.

It is unknown whether or not Caldwell or Wilkins have caught the eye of NFL front offices and are worthy of selection in the supplemental draft, but they are available to be chosen. They will become undrafted free agents if they are not selected.
