Draft Canceled!!!

by: Michael Steffes

Ok. Ok. It is only the supplemental draft and it had a lack of entrants this year. Hey, we got three weeks till camp and a month till the first preseason game. It would have been nice if we had a draft to talk about right? Well, chances are Tim Ruskell isn't a big fan of the supplemental draft anyway. It is an email draft designed to accommodate players who have lost their eligibility between April and now.

Last year two players were taken as supplemental picks, Jared Gaither and Paul Oliver. Current Seahawk Mike Wahle was a supplemental pick in 1998. And of course, the Seahawks made probably the most famous supplemental pick of all time when they selected Brian Bosworth, affectionately known as "The Boz", in 87'.
