Rams general manager Les Snead indicated Thursday that Clemson T Isaiah Battle will get a redshirt season in 2015.
"We felt it was an opportunity to get an earlier round value for a later round price," Snead said in a release. "He's going to practice what would've been his final year of college eligibility with us, go through our offseason program, and then start his rookie season a year from now. This will allow us to bring him along gradually both on and off the field. Now it's up to Isaiah and us to go work to reach his potential as a person and player." Battle was the only player selected in Thursday's 2015 Supplemental Draft. Defensive linemen Darrius Caldwell and Dalvon Stuckey of West Georgia, Houston defensive end Eric Eiland, UConn tight end Sean McQuillan, Kansas defensive back Kevin Short and North Carolina Central wide receiver Adrian Wilkins are all now free agents.

The Rams used a 2016 fifth-round pick to select Clemson T Isaiah Battle in the fifth-round of the 2015 Supplemental Draft.

This means the Rams have used five total draft picks on offensive linemen in the last few months. Those five: Rob Havenstein (second-round), Jamon Brown (third-round), Andrew Donnal (fourth-round), Cody Wichmman (sixth-round) and Isaiah Battle (fifth-round). We understand the approach, as the team will likely base their offense on Todd Gurley and Tre Mason, but we are not fans of the prospects or value overall. Battle has length and size, but he is a waist bender who lacks strength. He enters the rams program late in the process and the team loses their 2016 fifth-round pick with this selection.

Jason Cole spoke with one NFL GM who gave Clemson supplemental draft T Isaiah Battle a third-round grade.

However, the GM says Battle would be lucky to earn a fourth-round selection. "I wouldn't touch him," the decision maker added. We are shocked to see the third-round value based on film, as Battle is a waist bender who lacks functional strength and is a mediocre athlete. Yes, Battle plays a pivotal position (left tackle) and has extreme length (35 3/8"), but we are far from sold.
Jul 9 - 10:52 AM's Henry Hodgson projects Clemson T Isaiah Battle to go to Tampa Bay in the fourth round of Thursday's supplemental draft.

Many are arguing that Battle is the best prospect to enter the supplemental draft since Josh Gordon was a second-round pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2012. In total, seven players entered the supplemental draft, but Hodgson thinks only Battle will get taken.

NFL Media analyst Lance Zierlein writes that "scouts are concerned about his work ethic and character and view him as a player who will need time and patience."

The 6-foot-6, 312-pound Battle's "length and athleticism he offers at such a premium position could lead to him being selected within the first four rounds," Zierlein wrote. The Clemson prospect may be the only one taken in Thursday's supplemental draft; Battle had representatives from 26 NFL teams at his pro day on Tuesday.
Jul 8 - 2:23 PM senior analyst Gil Brandt reports that representatives from 25 NFL teams attended Clemson LT Isaiah Battle's pro day workout.

The Clemson prospect was timed at 5.29 and 5.21 in the 40-yard dash, and posted a 24 1/2-inch vertical jump, with an 8-foot-5 broad jump. The 6-foot-6, 312-pound Battle put up 12 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press, but had to cut the exercise short, due to a cramp in his arm. His arms are 35 3/8" long. With the supplemental draft set for Thursday, Battle could be the first prospect drafted in the supplemental draft, since Josh Gordon.
Jul 7 - 2:25 PM senior analyst Gil Brandt reports that Clemson LT Isaiah Battle will have his pro day on July 7th at Clemson.

The Clemson prospect may be one of the only players taken in the supplemental draft this year, and could cost an interested team a potential third or fourth-round pick in next year's draft. The 6-foot-7, 275-pound Battle has recorded 32 knockdowns in 1,336 snaps over 27 games.

The "perception around the league" is the Falcons are interested in Clemson supplemental draft T Isaiah Battle, according to Giants' beat writer Jordan Raanan.

As Raanan put it, Atlanta is "hot on Isaiah Battle's trail." Josh Norris took an extended look at Battle's play and was not impressed, citing a lack of strength/anchor in pass protection along with balance and waist bending issues. Some have mentioned a third- or fourth-round selection, which seems a bit rich. We expect Battle to be selected, but the question is how early. Any team that uses a supplemental draft selection loses that same pick in the following draft.
Jul 1 - 12:50 PM

The NFL Supplemental Draft is scheduled for July 9.

This year's summer draft will be focused on one prospect: Clemson offensive tackle Isaiah Battle. The Tiger started 11 of 12 games last season at left tackle and could be the first supplemental selection since 2012. Some have mentioned a third or fourth-round pick being used, but we don't see a player worthy of that draft capital and that team would then lose the same round selection in the 2016 NFL Draft.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang believes Clemson LT Isaiah Battle's "combination of height, arm length (35") and easy mobility will certainly intrigue the NFL."

"Physically speaking, however, Battle's combination of height, arm length (35") and easy mobility will certainly intrigue the NFL. He is still pretty raw, showing only average functional strength at this time and too often bending at the waist rather than at the knees, which leaves him vulnerable to the bull rush and counters back to the inside," Rang wrote. The 6-foot-6, 290-pound Battle played in 27 games for Clemson over the past three years, starting 11 of 12 games in 2014. The Clemson prospect has recorded 32 knockdowns in 1,336 snaps over 27 games. Rang adds that the "traits are there to warrant at least middle round consideration" for Battle.

NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah guesses Clemson LT Isaiah Battle will be selected in the third-round of the Supplemental Draft "without any knowledge of character situation."

Battle was reportedly facing his third strike with the Clemson program after recently being cited for marijuana possession. He did start 11 of 12 games last season at left tackle, but we were not impressed when watching him. Battle has length and perhaps athleticism, but he lacks an anchor to hold up against power and waist bends/lacks balance against speed moves. That is not a good combination.

NFL Media analyst Lance Zierlein believes the Broncos and Falcons are two potential landing spots for Clemson T Isaiah Battle.

Battle announced his intention to enter the Supplemental Draft on Thursday, a decision likely stemming from a third positive marijuana test which may have put his roster spot in jeopardy. Zierlein sees Denver as a fit due to the recent injury to Ryan Clady and he likes Battle as a fit for new Falcons OC Kyle Shanahan's scheme. "Battle has terrific length on his 6-foot-6 frame and is quick to land hands on pass rushers to disrupt their attack," Zierlein noted. The NFL hasn't yet announced when the 2015 NFL Supplemental Draft will take place, but we're guessing mid-July.

Clemson senior T Isaiah Battle, who recently declared for the Supplemental Draft, was recently cited for possession of marijuana, according to The Clemson Insider.

Battle was pulled over for speeding and was also handed a citation for simple possession. "Sources told us he left the team because this was the third and final strike for the senior left tackle," Will Vandervort writes. "We were told, "He had no money left in the bank."' Battle stated his reasoning to enter the Supplemental Draft was due to the upcoming birth of his child. Either way, Battle's time with Clemson would have seemingly ended soon.

Clemson senior T Isaiah Battle will enter the Supplemental Draft.

This is likely the most intriguing name of the four or five others reported thus far. Battle started 11 of 12 games last season and another four in 2013. "I have some family matters to address, with a child due this summer, and I feel it is in my best interest to enter the NFL Supplemental Draft," Battle said. Josh Gordon and Terrelle Pryor were the last two players selected in the Supplemental Draft. Head coach Dabo Swinney isolated freshman Mitch Hyatt as a possible replacement.

Clemson junior T Isaiah Battle "remains somewhat raw" but is a "good athlete who plays with some nastiness," notes

"His size is impressive, and he seemingly could add 20 or so pounds with no ill-effects," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Mike Huguenin. The 6-foot-7, 290-pounder is a former basketball player who didn't become a full-time starter until 2014. If Battle is smart, he'll spend this summer bulking up.
