The NFL will hold this year's supplemental draft on July 13. All 32 teams will be involved in the three-step, weighted process. Teams with six wins or less in 2005 participate in the first lottery for the top six picks, followed by a second group of non-playoff teams and a third group of the 12 playoff teams from last season. The draft used to be conducted on a conference call but now is performed via e-mail.
If a team elects to use a supplemental draft pick on one of the eligible prospects, that team will give up its pick in the same round in next April's draft (2007).
