Will Seahawks take anyone in Thursday’s supplemental draft?

Tomorrow — Thursday — is the NFL’s annual supplemental draft.

This won’t be like 1987, when the Seahawks acquired Brian Bosworth in the same draft.

There are only four players available, and none are sure things to be picked — Rob Rang has a good breakdown of the four here.

As Rang notes, teams that take a player then lose that corresponding pick in the 2015 draft. Seattle, recall, at the moment could have at least 12 picks next year — its seven original picks, a conditional pick from the Raiders as part of the Matt Flynn trade, and four compensatory picks for losing free agents this year. The compensatory picks won’t be announced until next March and couldn’t be used here. But Seattle could go into this with the knowledge that it can have a surplus of picks if it wants to.

According to this from NFLDraftDiamonds, Seattle was one of nine teams to watch a recent workout of RB Traylon Shead of SMU, a former JC standout. We’ll find out tomorrow if the Seahawks decide to make a move.
