It’s been 40 years since the Detroit Lions were selected in the annual NFL Supplemental Draft. This score will rise to 41, although Lviv does not control this.
On Friday, the NFL told teams that there would be no additional draft during the offseason. Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network. An additional draft is not mandatory under the terms of the CBA, and the league decided not to pursue an additional draft.
An additional draft is usually reserved for players who were ineligible for the regular NFL Draft but became eligible after the announcement deadline. No player has been selected in an additional draft since the Cardinals selected Washington State CB Jalen Thompson in 2019. Detroit last used CB extra pick Kevin Robinson in 1982. He never made it to the NFL.
