The NFL has declared 10 players eligible for the 2007 supplemental draft, which will be held at 1 p.m. EDT Thursday, July 12. The deadline for applications has passed.

Eligible to be drafted are the following players:

Morgan State DT Robert Armstrong
Florida State DT Clifton Dickson
Maryland OT Jared Gaither
Central Missouri DB RoShawn Marshall
Connecticut DB Donta' Moore
Georgia DB Paul Oliver
Nebraska OT Chris Patrick
Utah State DT Brian Soi
East Central (Okla.) OT Aaron Turner
Texas State-San Marcos LB Mark Washington

The selection order of this draft will be determined by a weighted lottery, with each team's chances based on the order in which they were slotted in the April draft. However, only those clubs that finished the 2006 season with six or fewer victories will have an opportunity to win the No. 1 selection in the supplemental draft — namely, Oakland, Detroit, Cleveland, Tampa Bay, Arizona, Washington, Minnesota, Houston and Miami.

Each round of the seven-round draft will last 10 minutes, with all 32 teams having a concurrent 10-minute limit to decide whether they want to choose a player in that round. The draft will last until seven rounds are completed or all players are drafted, whichever occurs first.

A team that selects a player will forfeit its pick in the corresponding round of the April 2008 draft. It can choose a player only if it has a pick available in that same round of the 2008 draft, as of the start of the supplemental draft.

If more than one team notifies the league that it wants to select a player in a given round, whichever of those teams is highest in the draft order for that round will be awarded the player.

Thanks for the info bud. I just knew whatever round they used here they would lose next year. Oliver might be worth a 2nd round pick for the Steelers I think. But since we didnt draft a DB in this past Aprils' draft, I dont see our front office making a bid on this guy.
