We've already heard a lot on Josh Gordon out of Baylor / Utah getting all the attention for the Supplemental Draft thanks to his elite skill set. And his other likely NFL worthy Supplemental Draft partner, TCU's Ed Wesley, has some attention as well.
While the rest of the six Supplemental Draft prospects likely don't
have much of a shot to both get picked or wow early in their careers,
it's certainly worth examainign their abilities.

Supplemental Draft Coverage
Adam Harris, Fullback, Syracuse
Harris was a starting fullback and a potential NFL undrafted free agent
if he was able to continue his career at Syracuse as a fullback. But
after having three concussions in his junior year, he decided to give
up football, like a wise move. He even took up a new sport, joining the
Syracuse Track and field team. Unsure if teams will even consider him
after the Supplemental Draft thanks to his concussion issues, but he's
the best of the remaining talents.
Larry Lumpkin, ILB, Alabama A&M
Played well last year for Alabama A&M (team's 5th leading
tackler), Lumpkin was set to be a team leader on a solid FCS school.
However, Lumpkin asked to be released from his scholarship this
off-season to transfer, but now seems to have chose the Supplemental
Draft route. This is the second time he's asked to released in the last
two years, but coaches took him back a year ago. Coaches seem to feel
he has a sense of entitlement which is the reason for the
Quaylon Ewing-Burton, CB, Boise State
Ewing-Burton was set to make an impact as a depth defensive back for a
Boise State program known for pumping out NFL players at that position.
He even got a start last year. But thanks to off the field issues (was
suspended multiple times in high school) he was dismissed from the
Boise State program. He has the talent to maybe get a shot in another
Montez Robinson, DE/OLB, Georgia
Robinson was going to be a depth rush linebacker for the Bulldogs this
season, but after a second alcohol related arrest in two years, along
with being put in jail for simple battery/family violation, Robinson
has been kicked off the team. Likely not in the NFL mix, he may have a
Adrian Haugton, DT, Iowa State
The 6'4, 360 pound defensive tackle already was set to play in the AFL
this year as a rookie, but appears to have been able to get some NFL
attention. Not really a prospect, Haughton likely will have to stay in
the AFL and earn his stripes there.
Houston Tuminell, WR, Louisiana Tech
Tuminell quit the team in 2009 after getting some playing time that
season. He was a First-Team All-East Texas receiver in high school and
certainly had the talent to thrive in the now solid Louisiana Tech
