NFL teams can't totally take off the Fourth of July holiday. They have to prepare for another draft.

The league informed teams Monday that the supplemental draft will be conducted electronically beginning at 1 p.m. ET on Thursday, July 12.

The following players are eligible to be drafted: Boise State DB Quaylon Ewing, Utah WR Josh Gordon, Syracuse RB Adam Harris, Iowa State OT Adrian Haughton, Carson-Newman LB Larry Lumpkin, Georgia DE Montez Robinson, McMurray WR Houston Tuminello and TCU RB Ed Wesley. No other players are eligible to apply for the draft.

Gordon is likely to receive the most attention from media and teams in the buildup to the draft. I spoke with former NFL scout (and current NFL.com analyst) Daniel Jeremiah, who said Gordon is building some buzz among teams. Measuring 6-foot-4, weighing 225 pounds and possessing good speed, Gordon looks the part of a pro wideout.

Gordon produced solid numbers in 2010 at Baylor before he was suspended and transferred to Utah. He turned pro before ever playing for Utah and will have to answer teams' questions about off-the-field behavior before anyone will take a chance on him.

I don't think we will be drafting any but I like Montez Robinson as a developmental LB. He was a top recruit coming outta High School. Flashed when given the chance as a freshman at Georgia but needs a good mentor and time to develop. The Ravens would be a perfect fit for him.

Ed Wesley has the talent to make a team. Along with Josh Gordon, the best of the lot. They'll get the most attention and probably drafted 6th or 7th round. If Josh Gordon had stayed at Baylor we could be talking about a 1st or 2nd round pick. Ed Wesly has the skills to be an all around back and punt returner. Decent 3rd or 4th RB for a team.


No Thanks:
Adam Harris is a FB with concussion problems.
Quaylon Ewing-Burton is a problem child who doesn't seem to get it.
Adrian Haughton will most likely be keepin his ass in the AFL.
Larry Lumpkin couldn't handle his academics at two small schools.
Houston Tuminello couldn't catch on at 3 different colleges.

Thats pretty much my general thoughts too. I didn't know about Robinson or the details about the others.

RB and LB are among the deepest positions on our roster, we have plenty of good competition heading into camp. There probably isn't enough reps to add more.

thanks for the info Pizan

here is some info on the prospects from Colin Lindsay (gbnreport.com)

Who's Who in 2012 Supplemental Draft

The NFL will hold its annual summer supplemental draft on July 12th. A total of 8 players. Any teams wishing to select one of the 8 players available for this year's supp draft will submit to the NFL the round in which they would take the player; if more than one team submit’s the same round for the same player, the player will be awarded to the team with the higher pick in the 2012 draft. Teams that are awarded a player at the supplemental draft will forfeit their pick in the round bid in 2013. Here's a quick profile of the eight players who will be available in this year's supplemental draft.

RB Ed Wesley, Texas Christian, 5-9, 200, 4.45 ... Perhaps the best known of the players in this year's supplemental draft, Wesley announced earlier this summer that he was leaving the Horned Frogs because of family reasons. Wesley has been a productive member of the TCU RB rotation the past three rushing for over 2,400 career yards, including a team-high 1,078 in 2010 when he was named to the All-Mountain West first team. Wesley isn't all that big and isn't going to move the pile, but he is a compact north-south runner with good vision and decent speed and acceleration. However, while he does have a burst, and the speed to break off the occasional big run, he lacks the lateral agiltiy to find the secondary hole and isn't going to make anyone miss in the open field. Wesley, though, is also a good punt returner who averaged 10.9 yards per return last fall. He has also been hampered by injuries during his TCU career including a shoulder problem that forced him to miss three games last season.

WR Josh Gordon, Baylor, 6-3, 220, 4.40 ... In many ways, Gordon is the wild-card in this year's supp draft. Certainly, no player has the same kind of upside asGordon has a really intriguing set of physical tools including ideal size combined with sub-4.4 speed that can really stretch defenses. However, Gordon also has enough red flags to hold his own parade. He left the Bears in 2011 after being suspended for a drug offense and transferred to Utah, but never played for the Utes and ultimately left a second program, this time for undisclosed reasons. Prior to leaving Baylor, though, Gordon showed some big-play ability as he averaged 17 yards per catch and scored 7 TDs as a part-time sophomore in 2010. And while he looks like an elite prospect, Gordon is still somewhat raw as a recever as his hands are inconsistent, while his route-running and understanding of the passing game are rather rudimentary.

DE Montez Robinson, Georgia, 6-5, 255, 4.60 ... Robinson may be to the defense what WR Gordon is for the offense. He's a physically talented kid with some upside, but comes with a passel of character concerns. In particular, Robinson was kicked off the UGA team in 2010 after multiple run-ins with the law for domestic abuse. As a player, though, he's an angular, athletic edge with a lot of natural tools. Robinson has long arms, a quick first step and outstanding closing speed; he also has a pretty good motor. Robinson, though, isn't all that polished. He isn't all that instinctive and doesn't use his hands effectively to get disengage from opposing blockers.

G/T Andrian Haughton, Iowa State, 6-3, 340, 5.35 ... Haughton is an interesting story as he was originally recruited to ISU primarily as a DT (when he was known as Scott), but ended up starting four games at RT as a true freshman in 2008 and all 13 games the following season. Out of football in 2010 he played last season with the Orlando Predators of the Arena league. He's a wide-body offensive lineman with good strength and some short-area quickness who lacks the length to play OT in the pros, but could find a home as an OG as he is a strong drive blocker with some pass blocking skills.

FB Adam Harris, Syracuse, 6-2, 248, 4.82 ... Rugged lead blocker was forced to give up football mid-way through his senior year in 2011 after suffering a third career concussion, but since has been medically cleared to give it another shot. Tough, physical blocker has some athleticism, but will never be much of a threat with the ball. Good athlete who was a LB at Cornell before transferring to SU and threw the shot put for the Orange track team after leaving the football squad.

LB Larry Lumpkin, Alabama A&M, 5-11, 240, 4.80 ... Originally signed at Alabama A&M, but didn't play much for two years before transferring to DII Carson Newman where he had 94 tackles last fall to lead the team, but was ruled to be academically ineligible for his senior season. Squat run-stuffer does a nice job patrolling between the tackles but isn't overly athletic and has limited range. .

CB Quaylon Ewing-Burton, Boise State, 5-11, 180, 4.50 ... Young player who is probably a long-shot even to get a free agent look if not selected next week. Ewing-Burton made some progress on the field this past season when he started 4 games as a sophomore, but still has a long way to go before being considered even a decent prospect. He isn't very big or physical, and while he does have some quickness, isn't all that instinctive or aggressive. Plus, he's a very immature player who was kicked off the team this winter for violating those proverbial team rules. That comes after a high school career in which he was suspended a number of times.

WR Houston Tuminello, McMurry, 5-11, 190, 4.58 ... Tuminello originally signed at Louisiana Tech where he had a total of 22 receptions (for less than 200 yards) before quitting the team 4 games into his sophomore season. He ended up at DIII McMurray, which is currently coached by legendary passing guru Hal Mumme, although Tuminello also appears to have been associated with both Stephen F Austin and Midwestern State after leaving Louisiana Tech. For the record, Tuminello had 4 receptions in three games for McMurry, not exactly the kind of resume that sends pro scouts scurrying to the tapes!
