The Eagles did not select any of the seven eligible players in Thursday's Supplemental Draft.

One player was chosen - former Clemson tackle Isaiah Battle - in the fifth round by the St. Louis Rams. Battle is the first player to be picked by any team in the Supplemental Draft since Josh Gordon in 2012. The Cleveland Browns used a second-round pick on the wide receiver.

The last time the Eagles used a pick on a Supplemental Draft prospect was in 1987 on wide receiver Cris Carter, who resurrected his career in Minnesota and was enshrined in the Hall of Fame in 2013.

Hall of Fame defensive end Reggie White was chosen by the Eagles in the first round (fourth overall) of the 1984 Supplemental Draft of USFL and CFL players.
