  • 2019 Supplemental Draft Thread

    Jalen Thompson, Marcus Simms look likely to go in the supplemental draft
    Posted by Michael David Smith on July 5, 2019, 1:44 PM EDT

    The NFL supplemental draft often passes without notice — and without any players being selected. This year looks different.

    Two of the players who are available to be selected look particularly talented, with a good chance to get chosen, maybe even with an early-round pick.

    The top prospect is Washington State safety Jalen Thompson, who had been discussed as a likely second-day pick in the 2020 NFL draft before the surprise announcement that he had lost his final year of NCAA eligibility and would go in this year’s supplemental draft. Chris Trapasso of CBS suggests Thompson could go as high as the second round of the supplemental draft, which would mean some team would be giving up its 2020 second-round pick to acquire him now. The last player to go that high in the supplemental draft was wide receiver Josh Gordon to the Browns in 2012.

    Also likely to be chosen is West Virginia wide receiver Marcus Simms. Raiders General Manager Mike Mayock was among several NFL personnel people to attend a recent workout with Simms.

    Former Syracuse linebacker Shyheim Cullen, former Saint Francis defensive back Bryant Perry and former junior college tight end Devonaire Clarington also have entered their names in the July 10 supplemental draft.

    Pro Day Workout - Jalen Thompson

    Former Washington State safety Jalen Thompson worked out in front of more than two dozen teams this afternoon in Los Angeles and the reviews have been positive.

    Twenty-six teams were on hand for Thompson’s workout including the director of scouting for the Houston Texans. He measured 5103 and 186 pounds with hands at 8 3/8 inches and an arm length of 31 inches.

    Thompson hit 33.5 inches in the vertical jump, 10-feet-4-inches in the broad jump and completed 11 reps on the bench press. As I reported on twitter, his initial forty time came in around 4.47 seconds with his second clocking 4.56 seconds.

    The other marks included 11.68 seconds in the 60-yard shuttle, 4.61 seconds in the short shuttle and 6.98 seconds in the three cone. The position drills were run primarily by the Atlanta Falcons, though other teams stepped in and requested specific drills.

    Thompson is meeting with the Green Bay Packers this afternoon as the team has shown a lot of interest in the safety. Other teams lining up for Thompson included the New England Patriots, Los Angeles Rams, Miami Dolphins, Indianapolis Colts and Arizona Cardinals.

    Stamped as a fourth-round prospect by several scouts this spring, the feeling is Thompson will get drafted somewhere in the later rounds during Wednesday’s supplemental draft, which begins at 1PM.
