Some other supplemental draft tidbits:
• Only four of the 33 players chosen ever appeared in a Pro Bowl game. Nine players taken in the supplemental draft never played a single down in a regular-season contest and another 10 played less than 32 games, the equivalent of two seasons.
• There have been nine supplemental drafts in which no players were selected, including in 2004, and nine others in which just one prospect was chosen. The 1998 draft was the last one in which more than one player was selected. The 1989 supplemental draft had a record five players chosen, including three first-rounders.
• There have been eight first-round choices exercised in the supplemental draft, with five used to take quarterbacks. Not since the Giants took Dave Brown in 1992, however, has a team invested a first-round selection on a supplemental prospect. Beyond the eight first-round players, the breakdown on where supplemental choices were used: four in the second round; two in the third; four in the fourth; two each in the fifth, sixth and seventh rounds; one in the eighth; three in the ninth; one apiece in the 10th and 11th rounds: and three in the 12th.
• With four choices, the Dallas Cowboys have used more picks in the supplemental draft than any other team. No other franchise has exercised more than two supplemental picks. Eleven teams have never made a supplemental choice.
