Two Players Taken in Supplemental Draft

Thursday’s supplemental draft saw two of the more high profile players get chosen as the San Diego Chargers selected Paul Oliver and the Baltimore Ravens grabbed Jared Gaither.  The Georgia corner Oliver went 28th in the fourth round. The Ravens selected Gaither, a Maryland tackle, 31st in the fifth round.

It marks the first time since 1998 that two players were taken in the supplemental draft. Oliver was among Georgia’s leaders with 57 tackles last season. Gaither started in 17 of Maryland’s last 21 games. With the selections, San Diego and Baltimore will forgo the corresponding picks in the 2008 draft.
