(Football StL) -- The NFL's annual supplemental draft takes place on Thursday at noon central time. It's not an organized event where players attend like the regular draft in April. It's over a conference call basically.
Teams can, if they want, submit a pick for a player. If they're awarded the claim, they get him and lose that round pick in the next year's draft. For instance, if the Rams put in a 4th rounder for someone and no one else puts in a claim (or they put in a 5th rounder or below) they get said player and lose their 4th round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. If someone submits a 2nd round pick for that particular player, the Rams would not get him but also would not lose a pick.
Typically, only one or two guys get taken in this thing and you never know what teams submitted claims that weren't successful. You only find out if a team gets a player.
The odds are heavy the Rams won't get anyone, but you never know.
