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