Breaking News: Oliver & Gaither selected

Posted Jul 12, 2007

The 2007 supplemental draft is just about finished and we can confirm the first player selected. UPDATE: First unselected player signs.

UPDATE 9:30 PM EST- Washington going to the left coast

Sources told us late this afternoon that Mark Washington of Texas State, who was not selected in the supplemental draft earlier today, has signed a free agent contract with the San Francisco 49ers.

The former Arizona State transfer, who played defensive tackle out of necessity last season, will be tried at rush linebacker in the Niners scheme.

Back on June 29th we had reported the Niners were flying Washington into their facilities for an exam and interview.  And while his workout was not as good as hoped, the Niners feel he'll offer competition in camp, which starts later this month.

Aaron Wilson of has confirmed that the Baltimore Ravens used a fifth round selection to draft Maryland tackle Jared Gaither. The team confirmed the move with Wilson and will be issuing an official press statement in the coming hours.

Jason Chayut, the agent for Georgia defensive back Paul Oliver, has confirmed that the San Diego Chargers have used a pick in the 4th round to take his client.

Chayut received a phone call from Chargers head executive Ed McGuire just a short time ago.  The Chargers will now relinquish their fourth round pick in the 2008 draft.

We will keep you updated as to which teams sign the remaining undrafted players.

No other player has been selected as of yet.
