Former Purdue DL Ra'Zahn Howard headlines a group of 6 players eligible for supplemental draft

NEW YORK -- Six players have been declared eligible for the NFL's supplemental draft, which will be held July 14.

Defensive linemen Ra'Zahn Howard of Purdue and Cameron Walton of Concordia (Alabama), which shut down its program last year; running back Jalen Overstreet of Sam Houston State; defensive back Tee Shepard of Ole Miss; wide receiver Rashaun Simonise of Calgary, Alberta (Canada); and long snapper Eddie D'Antuono of Virginia Tech received approval from the league Friday.

Any team selecting one of these players would forfeit a matching pick in the 2017 regular draft.

Overstreet, who first attended Texas, was indicted in 2016 in that state on a felony charge of credit or debit card abuse.
