NFL teams were alerted over the holiday weekend of the six players eligible for Thursday’s supplemental draft.
Alphabetically, they are:
DE James Boyd, UNLV
DT Nate Holloway, UNLV
DE Toby Jackson, Central Florida
WR DeWayne Peace, Houston
WR O.J. Ross, Purdue
DB Damond Smith, South Alabama
The two most prominent players are the receivers Peace and Ross (pictured above), who combined for 110 passes for 1,057 yards and four touchdowns in 2012 and were being counted on by their collegiate teams to produce even more as seniors.
Like most supplemental draft prospects – including several others from this year’s class – Peace and Ross requested special eligibility for inclusion into the NFL’s annual July draft because each ran into trouble at school.
