I am intrigued by OLB Blake Boyd (Western Kentucky)

Began his career at Louisville where he redshirted in 2005. Has adequate size (6-3, 250) and was very productive, racking up 184 tackles and 16.5 tackles for a loss in his three seasons with the Hilltoppers. Chose to enter the Supplemental Draft after being declared academically ineligible for the 2009 season. - nfldraftcountdown

He reportedly runs around a 4.70 40, which is quite reasonable

Last season:
11 GP. 67 tackles (33 solo, 34 assist), 9.5 TFL (32 yds), 3.5 sacks (21 yards), 1 Int (25 yards), 7 PBrUp, 1 QBH, 1 FR (0 yards)

He is the kind of guy that might be worth a late round pick in the supp draft.

He should be good on special teams

Another option is Joe McMahon (listed at 6-4, 290), particularly if he can back up center which gives Koets competition in camp. As a former quality boxer (2 time golden gloves), he will likely be very fit, very tough, aggressive and good with his hands. He has played rugby and has experience at all positions on the line. Another option for a late round flyer in the supp draft

more info in Joe McMahon

from http://blog.mlive.com/fireupchips/2009/06/joe_mcmahon_headed_to_nfl.html

Former Central Michigan OT Joe McMahon is going forward with his football career, and has entered the 2009 supplemental NFL draft.

June 9th, Pro Football Weekly -- Central Michigan OT Joe McMahon officially submitted paperwork to enter the NFL's supplemental draft, joining Florida State WR Corey Surrency and Kentucky DE Jeremy Jarmon as eligible prospects to be drafted.

McMahon is a former two-time Chicago Golden Gloves boxing champion who excelled at Joliet (Ill.) Junior College prior to transferring to Central Michigan in 2007, where he sat out to fulfill transfer requirements. At an estimated 6-3, 290 pounds, McMahon started the first five games at right guard in 2008 before kicking inside to center, where he started seven of the final eight games, missing the second-to-last contest against Eastern Michigan. Academic struggles forced him to leave the program.

Joe really hurt the team by not getting it done in the classroom, leaving us thin at the O-line going into the 2009 season.

Still, he played very well for us when he was around and I wish him the best of luck trying to get into the "league"
