The 2014 NFL Supplemental Draft has come and gone without a selection today. The four players eligible for this year’s edition of the draft were wide receiver Chase Clayton of New Mexico, linebacker Darius Lipford from North Carolina, defensive tackle LaKendrick Ross of Virginia-Lynchburg and running back Traylon Shead of SMU.
This does not come as a big surprise, but the one player that might have had the best shot to be picked was Lipford to a team like the Dallas Cowboys because they have a huge issue at middle linebacker with the injury to Sean Lee. Currently, the Cowboys have brought in some an extra body in the form of recently retired Rolando McClain. Lipford could still end up going to the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent to give them another option.
The rest of the class will also have their opportunity to make a roster as an undrafted free agent. As with most undrafted free agents, there is some advantage in being able to have a say in where they are going to give themselves the best option to make a roster and find a good situation, but all of the players involved likely would have preferred to be picked.
