Only a pair of NFL prospects will be eligible for selection in this year’s supplemental draft.
The two young talents hoping to generate some interest from teams next week are Georgia Military College defensive end Tavares Bingham and Western New Mexico running back Marques Rodgers, according to Rob Rang of NFL Draft Scout.
Bingham, who’s listed at 6-foot-4 and 290 pounds on the GMC website, recorded three sacks and 12 tackles after transferring from Mississippi Gulf Coast.
Rodgers racked up over 1,200 rushing yards and 16 total touchdowns across a two-year stretch before being ruled academically ineligible to play in 2016.
First implemented back in 1977, the supplemental draft provides an opportunity for young players who did not enter April’s NFL draft but have since had their eligibility change.
Isaiah Battle, a fifth-round pick of the now-former St. Louis Rams in 2015, was the last player selected in the supplemental draft. Other notable picks in recent history include Terrelle Pryor and Josh Gordon.
