NFL supplemental draft

New, comment

Jared Gaither will work out for the pro scouts today, according to Lenny P.

Because of Gaither's potential, most of the league's 32 franchises are expected to be represented at the workout, which will take place on the Maryland campus. Agent Kevin Pompey said that Gaither will participate in a full, combine-style workout.

Those teams which have demonstrated a particular interest in Gaither include Atlanta, Baltimore and Jacksonville.

CB Paul Oliver is also in the draft.

Gaither might challenge University of Georgia cornerback Paul Oliver for top billing in the supplemental draft. The summertime lottery, which is limited to "special cases" players, includes 10 prospects this year. In addition to Oliver and Gaither, the consensus seems to be that Nebraska offensive lineman Chris Patrick is the only other player with a viable shot of being selected.

If Gaither performs well in front of scouts, he could earn a spot in the first three rounds of the supplemental draft.
