Cowboys Pass In Supplemental Draft

IRVING, Texas --The lockout-delayed NFL supplemental draft finished Monday with only one pick made: embattled Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor to the Oakland Raiders, according to NFL Network.

The Cowboys chose not to forfeit a 2012 draft pick by selecting a player in a corresponding round.

Last year, they used a 2011 seventh-round pick on nose tackle Josh Brent, who emerged as a solid rotation player in 2010 despite arriving only a week before training camp. They recouped a seventh-rounder in 2011 by trading Patrick Crayton to the Chargers last September.

Among the eligible players Monday was defensive tackle Keenan Mace, whom the Cowboys signed as a rookie free agent after the lockout. The NFL declared he still had college eligibility at the start of camp, though, and he was forced to go the supplemental route.

Different circumstances when draft picks are involved, however, and the Cowboys apparently weren't willing to part with one.
