No "Jared Gaither's" in Today's NFL Supplemental Draft

OT Jared Gaither at 2009 Training Camp

Just a few short years ago, the Baltimore Ravens were the only team to put a NFL Supplemental Draft bid in for a relatively unknown offensive tackle named Jared Gaither from the University of Maryland who had barely played one season in college. In doing so, the Ravens forfeited a 5th round draft pick the following year, a cheap price to pay for a guy who would en up playing a lot quicker than anyone, including himself, planned, as the team had future Hall of Fame left tackle Jonathan Ogden firmly entrenched at the spot. However, Ogden suffered a nagging and painful toe injury, forcing Gaither to learn on the fly and he made a huge leap for such a young man.

Many thought Gaither would become the next great Ravens left tackle, but an injury-marred 2009 season gave the team the chance to see rookie offensive tackle Michael Oher in action protecting QB Joe Flacco's "blind side" and now the players have switched positions.

Today is the 2010 version of the NFL's Supplemental Draft, and while there are no "Jared Gaither's" that stand out as prospects, there are some intriguing options out there for teams looking for a cheap upgrade.
