We don't even need to know who they are to know the Steelers will not select any of the four candidates eligible for the 2014 NFL Supplemental Draft, held at 1 p.m. ET Thursday.
They never have. They won't this year.
Ex-North Carolina linebacker Darius Lipford is said to be the most likely pick of the four, despite having suffered a torn ACL in 2012.
From all accounts, he's an outstanding athlete, thus meeting what appeared to be the main characteristic of desire from the Steelers this offseason. It's a position that could use another prospect heading into training camp as well.
Ex-SMU running back Traylon Shead drew some interest at his recent pro day. He's a big back, listed at 230 pounds, but doesn't have great speed or vision.
LaKendrick Ross, a Dan McCullers-sized defensive tackle from Virginia-Lynchburg, is appealing based on his size and really nothing else. He basically has zero chance of being drafted due to a lack of athleticism and polish.
Ex-New Mexico wide receiver/kick returner Chase Clayton struggled with academic issues in his career, and won't be drafted today. Teams will want to give him a shot, given his return ability.
Not much to see here, but any of the four players who go undrafted are free agents, and in that situation, it's possible the Steelers kick a tire or two.
