The 2015 NFL Supplemental Draft will be held on Thursday, July 9th. The way the NFL Supplemental Draft works is you can pass in a given round, or select a guy. If you use a pick, you have to give up a selection in the round you participated in next year's NFL Draft.

There are seven players eligible for the 2015 NFL Supplemental Draft, who are listed below:

Clemson offensive lineman Isaiah Battle
West Georgia defensive tackle Dalvon Stuckey
West Georgia defensive end Darrius Caldwell
Houston defensive end Eric Eiland
Connecticut tight end Sean McQuillan
Kansas defensive back Kevin Short
North Carolina Central wide receiver Adrian Wilkins

Josh Gordon was the last supplemental draft selection, going to the Cleveland Browns in 2012. Clemson's Isaiah Battle headlines the group, and is thought to be as high as third round supplemental value.

Could the Jacksonville Jaguars take part? Conceivably, yes. Battle is talented, and both of West Georgia's defensive linemen have NFL size, versatility, and were originally recruited by big-name college programs before leaving for personal reasons.

But according to Mike Kaye of FirstCoastNews.com, general manager Dave Caldwell wasn't at West Georgia's pro day, so the chances remain slim.

With Dante Fowler's season-ending injury, Sen'Derrick Marks' recovery, and the overall lack of a true LEO for the Jaguars, they could enter the NFL Supplementary Draft foray. But it's not likely.
