Only 1 Player Taken in ’09 Supplemental Draft

Posted by Mike Wobschall on July 17, 2009 – 8:00 am

Judging by the lack of comments to yesterday’s post regarding the 2009 NFL Supplemental Draft, I hesitated to even follow up on it today. But considering A) I dedicated a part of my day yesterday to it, B) I recommended Gil Brandt’s written piece to all of you and C) 1 reported development concerns the Vikings in a round-about way, I’m going to follow up on it anyway.

As expected, the Vikings (and 30 other NFL teams) were pretty quiet. In fact, only 1 player was taken. The Washington Redskins selected Kentucky DE Jeremy Jarmon with the 19th pick in the 3rd round. As a result, the Redskins bolstered their defensive line, but did so at the expense of a 2010 3rd round pick.

The Vikings-related development comes from former NFL Network correspondent and soon-to-be-ESPN correspondent Adam Schefter, who tweeted the following: “One reason the Redskins took Jeremy Jarmon in the third round was because Detroit was poised to take him at the top of the fourth.”

Those players who were available during the supplemental draft but weren’t drafted now become rookie free agents.

So there you go, the 2009 NFL Supplemental Draft has come and gone. Hope you didn’t blink.
