Yesterday, Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network announced that the NFL will not hold a Supplemental Draft in 2021.
Under the league’s collective bargaining agreement, the NFL has the right to decide whether to conduct a supplemental draft each year.
After the league cancelled last year’s supplemental draft, it informed prospective supplemental draft picks they would not gain free-agent status but could instead enter the 2021 NFL Draft. Essentially, those looking to latch on with a team in the summer instead had to wait nine months for a chance. It is realistic to expect the league to deliver the same directive to those hoping to enter the supplemental draft this year.
The Supplemental Draft has been used before COVID struck and has helped some player gain access to the NFL a year early. Several years ago Terrelle Pryor was a Supplemental Draft pick that would go on to have a solid career. The last player to be selected in the Supplemental Draft was Jalen Thompson the former Washington State defensive back taken by the Cardinals.
