Ravens Pass On Supplemental Draft


The Ravens took a pass on this year's NFL Supplemental Draft.

None of the four players available were selected.

The four players, who were available because they lost their NCAA eligibility after the NFL Draft in May, were New Mexico wide receiver Chase Clayton, North Carolina linebacker Darius Lipford, Virginia-Lynchburg defensive tackle LaKendrick Ross and SMU running back Traylon Shead.

They are all free agents and are available to sign with any team.

This marks the second year in a row that nobody has been selected in the supplemental draft. Previously, at least one player had been taken every year since 2005 (except 2008, which was canceled due to a lack of eligible athletes).

The biggest-name player to be taken in recent years is wide receiver Josh Gordon, who the Cleveland Browns selected in the second round in 2012. Gordon now faces a possible year-long suspension, however.

The Ravens have only once taken a player in the supplemental draft: tackle Jared Gaither in the fifth round in 2007.
