I wanted to do something creative, so I put together a Mock Draft for the Supplemental Draft. There are only five players so far in the 2019 NFL Supplemental Draft, but can one of the players get drafted? Also, what teams should have the most interest? Let’s take a look at the prospects first:
Jalen Thompson the hard hitting and ball hawking safety from Washington States is by far the best prospect that applied for the Supplemental Draft. Many websites had Jalen Thompson a second round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Marcus Simms the wide out from West Virginia is the second player in the Supplemental Draft. I think Simms is a very solid player. The question is not whether he can play it is, can he be better than any player on your 90 man roster. I believe he can.
Shyheim Cullen the special teams ace and linebacker from Syracuse University will also have a great chance to hear his name called or get signed after the Supplemental Draft. NFL teams love special teams aces, and Cullen can be a player like that in the NFL.
Saint Francis DB Bryant Perry and Northland Community College TE Davonaire Clarington are both long shots to hear their names called. Both will have to perform extremely well at their pro day in front of scouts if they want a legit shot.
Let’s get to the Mock Draft:
4th Round – Cincinnati Bengals select S Jalen Thompson from Washington State. The Bengals have Shawn Williams and Jessie Bates and after that they are pretty thin at the safety position. I can see Jalen being a future player for the Bengals secondary.
7th Round – Pittsburgh Steelers select WR Marcus Simms from West Virginia. The Steelers have 4 solid wide outs but after that it is a gun fight for the 5th spot. I think the Steelers would be crazy not to select Simms as they are from a short distance from Morgantown where Simms played ball.
Undrafted – Shyheim Cullen signs with Washington Redskins as an undrafted free agent and competes to make a roster spot.
Davonaire Clarington and Bryant Perry both go undrafted, but earn a workout with the XFL.
