Default Supplemental Draft Prospect for Steelers?

Sure this may likely get bashed as we have enough unproven size at NT, but who knows and hey - its the off season.

Not sure if taking someone in the supplemental draft costs us anything as far as a pick in the "real" draft or not - or really anything about it - but just some random Steelers news I found this am:

If it didn't cost us anything, I'd like to bring him in to see if can earn a spot. Anyone know anything about the guy?

NFL Supplemental Draft: Pittsburgh Steelers could eye 6-foot-5 and 360 pound DT



Lakendrick Ross, Virginia-Lynchburg





One of the more unique aspects of the NFL is taking place on July 11th. The NFL Supplemental Draft, and the exact way it works and who is available is always another question within itself. One player who is looking to be drafted is, Virginia-Lynchburg defensive tackle Lakendrick Ross.



Elite Sports Agency's Glen Lansky informed College2Pro.com the huge defensive tackle is going to enter the July 11th draft. At 6-foot-5, 360 pounds, Ross has excellent agility and athleticism, especially for a small-school prospect. The trifecta of size, speed, and strength bring a unique prospect for NFL teams to view, in early July before training camps begin in earnest.



Lansky said he's fielded more than twenty calls from NFL teams regarding interest in his client. Ross is holding a workout on July 7th, at IC Norcum High School, in Portsmouth, Virginia. It's likely Ross will go undrafted through the July 11th event.

Ross played one year, in 2012. Team's view Ross as raw and development prospect, but also a player with an upside as enormous as he is. It's hard not to take notice.


Go Steelers!

if he goes undrafted, I would have no problem with bringing him in as a developmental prospect...

Whatever pick we use, then we will lose that pick in the following draft.

7th round sup pick will take away our 7th in the next draft.

I would be ok Steelers throwing away a 7th on this guy if they thought he was worth it, but it sounds like he isn't...

No players selected in 2014 NFL Supplemental Draft

By Mike Huguenin
College Football 24/7 writer
Published: July 10, 2014

To no one's real surprise, none of the four players available in Thursday's NFL Supplemental Draft were selected.

It's the second year in a row that there were no supplemental picks, and each of the four players available this year -- New Mexico wide receiver Chase Clayton (6-foot-3, 202 pounds), North Carolina linebacker Darius Lipford (6-3, 255), Virginia-Lynchburg defensive tackle LaKendrick Ross (6-5, 360) and SMU running back Traylon Shead (6-2, 230) -- now becomes a free agent eligible to sign with any team.

Lipford -- who was projected to start at one outside linebacker spot for UNC this fall -- and Ross seem likely to be the most sought-after of the quartet as free agents.

There have been some star players selected in previous supplemental drafts, but there was nothing close to a sure thing in this year's event.

The supplemental draft began in 1977, and 42 players have been selected over the years.
