Simonese eligible for NFL Supplemental Draft

Over the weekend, the NFL revealed the list of eligible players for the 2016 NFL Supplemental Draft and a Canadian is on the list.

Rashuan Simonese is one of six players that are on a list released by the NFL.  The Supplemental Draft is scheduled for July 14th.

Players are eligible for this draft is they were passed over in the NFL Draft.  If they were not selected by a team, they are deemed undrafted free agents.

Basically, the Supplemental Draft is like an auction – if a team is interested in taking a player, they phone the NFL League Office and state what round they will take the player in.

However, there is a catch for a team who takes a player in the Supplmental Draft.  Should they take a player in this draft, a team loses that selection in the 2017 NFL Draft.  For example if Simonese gets selected by a team in the third round of the Supplemental Draft, the team who selects him relinquishes their third round selection in the 2017 main NFL Draft.

Last season with the Calgary Dinos, the 6’5, 190 pound receiver from Vancouver, British Columbia amassed 1306 yards on 65 receptions and 11 touchdowns. He helped the Dinos reach the CWUAA final.  Simonese was selected as a CWUAA All-Star in 2015.

Additionally, he was selected as a CIS First All-Canadian and participated in the CIS East-West Bowl game at Pervical Stadium this past May.

Previous to the Dinos, Simonese suited up for the Vancouver College Fighting Irish of the British Columbia High School Football Association (BCHSFA).
