Former UConn TE McQuillan eligible for NFL Supplemental Draft

Former UConn tight end Sean McQuillan is one of nine players eligible for next week's NFL supplemental draft according to a tweet from Michael Signora, NFL Vice President for Football Communications.

McQuilan joined receiver Deshon Foxx, currently in camp with the Seattle Seahawks as an undrafted rookie free agent as the only skill position players to start every game for the Huskies during the 2014 season.

He was being talked up by UConn coach Bob Diaco as having a key role in the upcoming season. However, McQuillan was arrested and charged with second-degree assault and disorderly conduct after an alleged fight with his roommate. McQuillan finished up with the classes he needed to graduate and then the university declined to admit him for graduate school ending his run with the football program.

The 6-foot-3, 239 pound McQuillan caught 41 passes over the last two seasons and he had the only touchdown in UConn's spring game.

Clemson OT Isaiah Battle, West Georgia DE Darius Caldwell, Houston DE Eric Eiland, Kansas DB Kevin Short, West Georgia DT Dalvon Stuckey, North Carolina Central receiver Adrian Wilkins join McQuillan as players eligible for the supplemental draft.
The supplemental draft is set for July 9. Teans forfeit the pick for each player they select so a first-round pick will result in a team losing its first-round selection in the upcoming draft. Ten players have been taken in the supplemental draft from 2002-11 but quarterback Terrelle Pryor, selected by the Oakland Raiders in the third round in 2011, is the last player to be selected in the supplemental draft.
