Default Some surprisingly good talent int the supplemental draft

Here are the four players who have entered the supplemental draft process:


Jalen Thompson, S, Washington State
(according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media)

Notes on Thompson:
- 6-0, 190 lbs.
- 190 tackles (11.5 for loss), six interceptions, 17 pass breakups and two pass breakups
- Senior Bowl Executive Director Jim Nagy noted on Twitter that he had been scouting Thompson for the annual all-star game. Rapoport reported that Thompson is expected to be selected during the supplemental draft.

Marcus Simms
, WR, West Virginia (according to Tony Pauline of NFL Draft Scout)

Notes on Simms:
- 6-0, 194 lbs.
- 87 catches for 1,457 (16.7 YPC) and eight touchdowns in three seasons.
- 41 kickoff returns for 992 yards (24.2 YPR), 23 punt returns for 157 yards (6.8 YPR)

Shyheim Cullen, LB, Syracuse (according to Cullen on Twitter)

Notes on Cullen:
- 6-0, 224 lbs.
- 43 tackles (three for loss), a sack, two pass breakups and two fumble recoveries.
- Cullen was suspended for the spring semester due to his academic standing, according to Syracuse.com. Cullenís academic standing fell below the requirements of the David B. Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics.

Devonaire Clarington, TE, Northland Community College (via Howard Balzer)


Notes on Clarington:
- 6-7, 230 lbs. (per Northland Community College)
- 48 catches for 916 yards and 11 touchdowns at Nortland Community College
- Clarington committed to the University of Texas coming out of high school but he was ruled academically ineligible to play for the school and spent his college career at Blinn Junior College and Northland Community College.
- Clarington will host a workout on July 8 at Miamiís Southridge High School.
When is the supplemental draft?
The supplemental draft has been held on the second Wednesday of July in each of the past two offseasons. If this yearís supplemental draft follows the same timing, the selection process will take place on Wednesday, July 10.
Cullen seemed to indicate through his Twitter announcement that July 10 would be the date of the supplemental draft.

I like Thompson and I would put in a 4th round bid on him. He has potential starter written all over him.
