Six players have been declared eligible for the 2016 NFL supplemental draft.

Purdue DL Ra'Zahn Howard, Concordia DL Cameron Walton, Sam Houston State RB Jalen Overstreet, Ole Miss DB Tee Howard, Canadian WR Rashaun Simonise and Virginia Tech LS Eddie D'Antuono have all been declared eligible. The supplemental draft will occur on July 14. Any team opting to select a player in the July event (some years, there are no supplemental picks made) will have to forfeit the corresponding pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. Josh Gordon, whom the Browns selected with a second-round pick in the 2012 supplemental draft, stands as the most famous recent example of a player picked through this process who subsequently found high-profile success in the NFL.

Jets selected Sam Houston State P Lachlan Edwards with the No. 235 overall pick of the 2016 NFL draft.

Edwards is an FCS punter, and an Australian native. He'll obviously be the odds-on favorite to start, as the Jets entered draft weekend without a punter. Edwards will have to be atrocious in camp not to get the job.
Apr 30 - 6:09 PM

Sam Houston State P Lachlan Edwards worked out privately for the Cardinals.

Wednesday's audition was one of Edwards' eight scheduled private workouts leading up to the draft. An Australian native, Edwards is competing to become the first punter off the board later this month.

Sam Houston State senior P Lachlan Edwards accepted an invite to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

The native of Hastings, Victoria, Australia was a First team All-Australian University in Australian Rules football back in 2012. He's also played rugby, cricket and ran track and field. Edwards is big (6-foot-5) and has a huge leg. He'll likely be a camp leg in the summer.

Texas has dismissed redshirt sophomore RB Jalen Overstreet due to a violation of team rules.

Beat writer Chip Brown revealed the football team recently took a drug test, which might have been a reason for the recent dismissals. Taylor Gaspor of Orange Bloods says this is Overstreet's second offense. The redshirt sophomore was expected to have a much larger role this season.

Saints signed Sam Houston State RB Tim Flanders.

Flanders (5-foot-8 5/8, 207) left Sam Houston State as the Southland Conference's all-time leader in rushing yards (5,664) and touchdowns (66). Although he ran 4.75 in Indy and was underutilized in the passing game in college, Flanders improved to 4.56 at the Bearkats' Pro Day and reminds of Rams feature back Zac Stacy on tape with a bowling-ballish build and ability to beat first contact. A gifted enough runner to make an NFL roster, Flanders is worth monitoring in fantasy circles despite his low profile, though he will find playing time hard to come by early in his career. The New Orleans' backfield is as muddy as any in the league.

Sam Houston Sate RB Tim Flanders will visit the Saints, according to draft insider Tony Pauline.

We don't believe Flanders counts as a local visit, since Sam Houston State is located in Texas, but we could be wrong. Flanders attended the East-West Shrine game and is a sixth- or seventh-round pick, at best.

Sam Houston State senior RB Tim Flanders accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine Game.

Flanders, SHSU's all-time leader in rushing and scoring, enjoyed a hugely productive career as a four-year starter with the Bearkats. The problem is that he doesn't have the size (5-foot-9, 212 pounds) or measurables to be a productive back at the next level. Flanders will likely be a priority free agent signing after the draft and a camp body next summer.

Former TCU senior LB Tanner Brock, who is currently playing for Sam Houston State, apologized for his actions that led to his dismissal from the Horned Frogs.

"I really am sorry I did it; I know this is going to follow me forever," Brock said. "I owe so much to TCU and to coach (Gary) Patterson and Fort Worth. I hurt a lot of people with my decisions." The linebacker was one of 17 students arrested for drug distribution to under cover police. He is set to graduate this spring.

Texas redshirt freshman RB Jalen Overstreet, a former QB, is already gaining practice reps.

Johnathan Gray, Malcolm Brown and Joe Bergeron are obviously ahead of Overstreet, but the young runner is trying to find a role int he crowded backfield. He did just that against New Mexico State, taking nine carries for 92 yards and two touchdowns.

Scouts Inc.'s Todd McShay calls Sam Houston State senior RB Tim Flanders a possible sleeper for the 2014 NFL Draft.

McShay seemed very impressed With Flanders' downfield receiving ability, recalling two long catches against Baylor. However, after tallying 56 receiving yards that game, Flanders only added 72 yards the rest of the season. He did rush for 5.7 yards per carry and crossed the end zone 17 times.

Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl calls Sam Houston State CB Daxton Swanson a sleeper to watch among defensive backs.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler is another person who has been pounding the table for Swanson. "Swanson could get stronger in run support, but his ball skills and explosiveness out of breaks could make him a good value on Day 3," Weidl writes. "He could add valuable depth early in his career and have a chance to develop into a starter."

Linebacker Tanner Brock is among four TCU players and 17 students involved in drug arrests.

When you think TCU, you generally think defense and Brock was a key cog for the Rose Bowl winners two seasons ago. Brock led the team with 106 tackles while adding a pair of fumble recoveries and a pick. He was unable to build on his 2010 season because he suffered a season-ending foot injury in last year's opener against Baylor. Brock was expected to be back as a starter in 2012.
