Monday morning kickoff — Supplemental Draft this week, and Sherman game wrapup

In what passes for activity this time of year, the NFL will hold its Supplemental Draft on Thursday, with the league today confirming the names of the six players who will  be available.

As the story notes, none are big names and it’s possible none get selected.

One interesting name on the list is that of James Boyd of UNLV. Local college football fans may remember him as the player who was at the center of a secondary recruiting violation by UW coach Steve Sarkisian and assistant Nick Holt in 2009 (details here). Boyd signed with USC when Pete Carroll was coach there, but didn’t make an impact there and transferred to UNLV.

But as Rob Rang points out, the two most likely players on the list to get drafted are receivers O.J. Ross of Purdue and DeWayne Peace of Houston. Given Seattle’s sudden depth at that spot, and use of a third-round pick to bolster it in the 2013 draft, it seems unlikely the Seahawks would need to add to that position this week.
