Adam Schefter, of the NFL Network, reports the San Francisco 49ers are interested in Denver Broncos WR Ashley Lelie, but the 49ers are not willing to give up what Denver wants, either a first-day pick or a player of commensurate value.
Supplemental draft coming in July
Gil Brandt, of NFL.com, reports the NFL will hold a supplemental draft July 13. Rules of the supplemental draft stipulate that it has to take place at least 10 days prior to opening of first training camp. Draft order is determined by a weighted system that is divided into three groupings. First comes the teams that had six or fewer wins last season, followed by non-playoff teams that had more than six wins, followed by the eight playoff teams. The paperwork hasn't officially been filed yet for this year's supplemental draft, but there are at least two players who will get a close look from scouts around the league, LB Ahmad Brooks (Virginia) and DE Jason Berryman (Iowa State).
