The NFL will hold the Supplemental Draft on Thursday at 1pm. There are 6 players eligible this year. None of them are likely to be drafted.
DE James Boyd, UNLV – 6-5, 255 – Originally went to USC. Then transferred to a junior college and eventually UNLV. Has played both offense and defense. Played DE for UNLV in 2012. Had 2.5 sacks, but 2 of them came vs I-AA Northern Arizona. Talented prep player who never panned out in college. Good frame.
DT Nate Holloway, UNLV – 6-3, 365 – Massive NT. Missed 2012 due to academic issues. Had 3.5 TFLs in 2011 as a Soph. Not as physically dominant as his size might suggest. Does have good potential as a run stuffer.
DE Toby Jackson, Central Florida – 6-5, 257 – Originally signed with Georgia out of high school, but had to go to junior college. Was a highly sought after JC prospect and chose UCF over some bigger schools. Didn’t pan out. Was a backup in 2011. Lists at 6-5, but doesn’t look that tall.
WR DeWayne Peace, Houston – 5-11, 190 – Led UH in receiving in 2012, going 54-603-2. Looks like a slot receiver, but played outside for the Cougars. Lacks the speed to beat CBs. Comfortable working the middle of the field. Also a returner.
WR O.J. Ross, Purdue – 5-10, 188 – Purdue’s leading receiver in 2012. Finished his career with 100-959-6. That is a terrible yards per catch average, especially for college. Ross isn’t anything special athletically. Could be a role player in the NFL. Has some KOR experience.
CB Damond Smith, South Alabama – 5-11, 184 – Played 2 years at Western Michigan. Was out for 2011 and ended up at South Alabama. According to former Eagles scout John Middlekauf, there are some character concerns with Smith. He did have a solid Pro Day workout for NFL teams and ran in the 4.5 range, which is solid for a corner with his build.
