Supplemental Draft 2009
The NFL will conduct the Supplemental Draft 2009 this Thursday, July 16th for players who rescind their remaining college eligibility. This draft has been a little used process that considers special situations for players that are at least three years removed from high school. All 32 teams can participate in the weighted draft process that is divided into three tiers. Teams with six wins or less in last season will make up the first group, followed by a second group of non-playoff teams and finally a third group of the twelve 2008 playoff teams. Each team submits the name of the players that they want to draft with the round they would like to select them. The club with the highest selection will be awarded the player. In the case of two teams drafting the same player in a round, the club with the worse record last season will win the prospect. A team that uses a pick in the Supplemental Draft will forfeit their choice in the corresponding round of the NFL Draft 2010. The new draft prospects will be considered part of the rookie salary pool for the NFL Draft 2009 and must fit under the current contract structure and overall salary cap.
This year the Supplemental Draft will take place on July 16th at 1 p.m.
We will have a Free Supplemental issue this week of Pro Prospects for full subscribers.
