    snippet:
    With the NFL Supplemental Draft looming and talented players like Virginia LB Ahmad Brooks available to any NFL team, the GMs and personnel guys around the league have a huge choice to make.

    Should NFL teams now go for a talented player that wasn't eligible for this spring's draft? Or, should they hold off this summer and save that pick for next year's regular draft?

    If a team selects a guy in this year's supplemental draft, they do get someone ready to help out immediately.

    However, if you get the guy, next April, you give up an equivalent selection in the regular NFL Draft. Sometimes, the reward does outweigh the risk. Many times, it doesn't. It's a tricky situation for NFL teams and an even bigger guessing game than the normal draft.

    Best quote in the article is about David Wilson sitting behind a bunch of QB's during his career

    "Folks, you know that your team thinks you throw way too many interceptions if you're grabbing bench behind Richard Todd, also known by his superhero alter ego "Pickman."

    If there was no Supplemental draft we would have never been blessed with big names such as Milford Brown and Tony Hollins. :tease:
