lol do a google search on his name and our site shows up in the top five. :)

He's in the Supplemental Draft. And that confuses me.

Darin Gantt said:
According to a report by Rob Rang of CBSSports.com, the league informed teams over the weekend that six players would be eligible to be drafted in Thursday’s version. If a team takes a player, they lose the corresponding choice in next year’s draft.

The six players are: UNLV defensive end James Boyd, UNLV defensive tackle Nate Holloway, Central Florida defensive end Toby Jackson, Houston wide receiver DeWayne Peace, Purdue wide receiver O.J. Ross and South Alabama defensive back Damond Smith.


Nevermind, confusion over.

"The Packers reportedly tried signing him to a try-out deal this spring before the league said he should go in the supplemental pool."

Thanks for clearing that up Zero2Cool. I really wanted to see this kid in the green & gold. Couldn't figure out what had happened... I thought we had him signed.

I'm wondering if the Packers use a 7th on him or if everyone skips him over and the Packers sign him anyway? I kinda wanna see this one in camp. I did as much reading up on him as I could. (there's not much out there on him)

A good player to develop for the team that gets to sign him. He takes good angles with his tackles. That is what impressed me most.

No one picked in supplemental draft so maybe he still lands with the Packers?

Wow. Well, maybe he would like the chance to develop with a solid group to show him the way. He probably wants to jump in though, and challenge for a real roster opening. We are too loaded to offer that. He'd be a PS player at the most in GB this season.

"John Middlekauff @JMiddle365: South Alabams Damond Smith is getting NO action... To quote his agent they are "shocked'. Think he will still get some play come August"


Quote:
The news is especially surprising when you consider the fact that Smith was approached after the 2013 NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers, who had interest in signing him then. Unfortunately for Smith, he had not filed his official paperwork so he was not eligible to be signed as an undrafted free agent.

There must be more to this than meets the eye. Still, I don't see why they don't sign him for next to nothing and see what happens.

I don't really think it is up to the Packers. If you were a young, raw talent at CB, without the benefits of a high profile program in your history, would you want to choose Green Bay as your best chance to land a roster spot?

We are so deep at CB that I wouldn't doubt he is looking at other teams to sign on with, trying to get an offer... with nearly every team already loaded up to 90 going into camp. He'll land somewhere. I just doubt it will be GB after looking a bit more at the situation.
