There wont be any strutting across the stage of Radio City Music Hall, but the NFL Draft continues on Thursday with the supplemental draft.
That's when players not involved in the regular April draft and there are usually good reasons they werent involved are available to be bid on by any team.
Teams make bids electronically, in a draft order. The team with the winning bid forfeits the corresponding pick in the NFL Draft next April.
Terrelle Pryor, after the whole ink-gate controversy at Ohio State, was a 2011 supplemental draft pick by the Raiders. Supplemental drafts rarely produce top-of-the-depth-chart talent, though quarterback Bernie Kosar and wide receiver Chris Carter were among the exceptions.
This years supplemental draft features eight players, and wide receiver Josh Gordon, who was Robert Griffin IIIs teammate at Baylor, is considered the cream of the crop. Gordon was suspended from Baylors team in 2011 after failing a marijuana test, then transferred to Utah last August, where he had to sit out a season. But instead of joining the Utes this fall for what would be his senior season, he opted to enter the supplemental draft.
The 6-foot-4 Gordon held a Pro Day on Tuesday for 21 teams the Ravens apparently were not among them -- and RGIII is lobbying hard for Gordon to end up with the Redskins. NFL.coms Daniel Jeremiah projects Gordon going to Cleveland with a third-round pick.
Will the Ravens be players in this supplemental draft?
The Ravens have made a supplemental draft pick just once, taking offensive tackle Jared Gaither with a fifth-round pick in 2007.
Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times reported that the Ravens have at least kicked the tires on linebacker Larry Lumpkin. The 6-foot, 240-pounder began his career at Alabama A&M, then transferred to Carson-Newman but was declared academically ineligible for this coming season.
Wilson explains that Lumpkin has demonstrated flashes of potential but also has been dogged by disciplinary issues, including being late for meetings and missing practices.
In addition to Gordon and Lumpkin, the other players in the supplemental draft include
cornerback Qualon Ewing-Burton (Boise State), running back Adam Harris (Syracuse), tackle Adrian Haughton (Iowa State), defensive end Montez Robinson (Georgia), wide receiver Houston Tuminello (McMurrayLouisiana Tech) and running back Ed Wesley (TCU).
