I have yet to see anything on the supplemental draft except the Pryor bit. Somehow I doubt that Pryor was the only player taken in the supplemental draft. Does anyone have a link to the complete draft, or an up-to-the-minute pick-by-pick listing? Thanks.

There were five other players eligible for the supplemental draft, including Georgia RB Caleb King, but Pryor was the only name called. King was slated to be the Bulldogs’ starting running back this season after rushing for more than 1,000 yards combined over the past two years. But he was ruled academically ineligible this summer, ending his Georgia career.

King did not waste much time finding a time once the supplemental draft passed, however, reportedly signing a deal with the Vikings.

In addition to King, Mike McAdoo (North Carolina), Tracy Wilson (Northern Illinois), Keenan Mace (Lindenwoo) and Torez Jones (Western Carolina) also went undrafted.

Wow. It really was a one-man-draft. Weird. Thanks for the article.

Well it seems that people are unaware of the supplimental draft. But that could change with Terrelle Pryor it seems.

I certainly don't understand it. Seems more like an auction than a draft, but whatever.

auction is a pretty accurate description. there is no ceremony in NY. teams put in thier "bid" , which is a draft round pick , and the lowest round offered wins. if more than 1 team bids the same round , it goes by the drafting order this year. in other words , had the steelers (31), raiders (17) , ratbirds (27), all bid a 3rd , the raiders win it due to being lower in the draft order.
