DraftInsiders.com 2016 Football Championship Subdivision All-America Team - First Team

Four-time FCS All-American Cooper Kupp of Eastern Washington and Missouri linebacker Dylan Cole headline DraftInsiders.com 2016 FCS Football Championship Subdivision All-America Team.

Kupp has now broken 15 FCS, 11 Big Sky and 25 EWU records in his illustrious career. Cole led the FCS with 142 total tackles and was second in the nation with 85 solo tackles. He also recorded eight tackles for loss, two interceptions, four pass breakups and three forced fumbles.

Both players are on the Senior Bowl Watch list for this January and among the highest rated small college prospects to move on to the NFL from the FCS level.

Philadelphia Hosts The NFL Draft 2017

NFLDraft.jpg

NFL Draft Returns to Philadelphia for Spring 2017
The NFL confirmed that the 2017 NFL Draft will be held in Philadelphia on the weekend of April 27-29 next spring. The City of Brotherly Love hosts the NFL extravaganza in 2017 for the first time since 1961 after a two year stay in Chicago. The first ever NFL Draft was actually held in Philadelphia back in 1936, while the last draft held in the city was in 1961, the year after the Eagles last NFL title in 1960. The Big Apple had a 50-year run in New York, prior to the NFL move to Chicago in 2015 and 2016. The two year stay in Chicago drew an estimated 200,000 fans. Several cities including Dallas and Green Bay are believed to be pressing for the NFL 2018 Draft with Dallas the forerunner. Green Bay has shown interest in hosting the NFL Draft in 2019, 2020 or 2021. Meanwhile, several other sites have also expressed a strong interest in hosting a future draft including Los Angeles, Denver, Jacksonville, Pittsburgh and Atlanta. In addition, Canton, Ohio the home of the NFL Hall-of-Fame and an original NFL team is interested in hosting the NFL Draft over the next five years.

NFL Draft 2017 - April 27-29, Thursday through Saturday.

NFL Supplemental Draft 2016 - July 14, 2016

NFL Supplemental Draft 2016 - July 14, 2016
Pro Prospects Supplemental Preview - Free Issue for Full Subscribers

Prospects for NFL Supplemental Draft 2016
The NFL will conduct the Supplemental Draft 2015 on Thursday, July 14th for players who rescind their remaining college eligibility. This draft has been a short process annually that considers special situations for players that are at least three years removed from high school. All 32 teams will participate in the weighted process that is divided into three tiers with seven prospects entered for this year’s selection draft. Teams with six wins or less from last season will make up the first group, followed by a second group of non-playoff teams and finally a third group of the twelve playoff teams. Each team submits the name of the players via email that they want to draft with the round they would like to select them. The club with the highest selection will be awarded the player. In the case of two teams drafting the same player in a round, the club with the worse record last season will win the prospect. Players not selected in this draft class will then become free agents eligible to sign with any team.

Any team that uses a selection in the Supplemental Draft will forfeit their choice in the corresponding round of the NFL Draft 2017. The new draft prospects will be considered part of the rookie salary pool along with the players from the NFL Draft 2016 and they must fit under the current contract structure and overall salary cap. The Rams used a #5 pick last summer on OT Isaiah Battle. No players were drafted the previous past two summers. In 2013, the Browns used their #2nd round pick on wideout Josh Gordon, the only selection chosen in the process. He has been a Pro Bowl receiver who set new NFL records a few years ago. But he has also been suspended annually for failing drug and alcohol tests and is currently suspended pending review.
Most prospects in a Supplemental class provide little initial impact because of the late signing that caused them to miss all of the OTAs and mini-camp practices. The NFL office has considered terminating this draft process after only minimal interest by clubs.

Prospects for NFL Supplemental Draft 2016
These players are eligible for the NFL Supplemental Draft after not declaring for entry in the NFL Draft 2016. They have lost their eligibility for the upcoming college season.
The NFL has confirmed that these six players will be available in this week’s summer NFL Supplemental Draft 2016.
