The other day, we posted an item on the annual NFL Supplemental Draft, which is currently set to take place on July 12th. Aside from the date that the event is to take place, the other noteworthy piece of information about the event was that TCU running back, Ed Wesley was proclaiming himself eligible and is headed to the NFL via this draft.

We now have a bit more information on the event, namely who will be entering along with Wesley in just over a week. Our own "mothership", SB Nation provides the us the 411.

There are seven other players besides Wesley looking to enter the Supplemental Draft. Here's the list:

The following is the complete list of players eligible for the July 12 draft:

  • Boise State DB Quaylon Ewing
  • Baylor WR Josh Gordon
  • Syracuse RB Adam Harris
  • Iowa State T Adrian Haughton
  • Carson-Newman LB Larry Lumpkin
  • Georgia DE Montez Robinson
  • McMurray WR Houston Tuminello
  • TCU RB Ed Wesley

Aside from Wesley, the most notable name on the list is Baylor wide receiver, Josh Gordon. Like so many other players that enter the Supplemental Draft, Gordon is talented but comes with issues. His resume includes a suspension and transfer, but he decided to not follow through with the transfer to head straight to the NFL.

For a breakdown on Gordon, SB Nation writes:

At 6'4" 220 pounds, Gordon has the size teams like to see in a receiver. He did not play at all last season because of a suspension. He transferred to Utah, but will not play there in light of his decision to enter the NFL Supplement Draft.

Wide receiver and running back are two positions that the Bengals could take flyers on, but we are not sure that they would roll the dice on troubled young players. They made a pretty concerted effort to avoid these players this offseason and selecting one of these players in the Supplemental Draft would likely bring in a player who's had issues.
