In what will likely be his only exposure to NFL talent evaluators before Thursday's supplemental draft, University of Maryland offensive tackle Jared Gaither will audition on Monday for league scouts. Because of Gaither's potential, most of the league's 32 franchises are expected to be represented at the workout, which will take place on the Maryland campus. Agent Kevin Pompey said that Gaither will participate in a full, combine-style workout.

Texas State's Washington Eligible For NFL's Supplemental Draft
Texas State hybrid defender Mark Washington has been declared eligible for the NFL's special July 12 supplemental draft. A defensive lineman at Texas State in 2006, and perhaps miscast at tackle, Washington is projected as a linebacker at the NFL level, and, because of his diverse skills, might be best suited for a team that employs a 3-4 front. Washington, 22, is a longshot to be chosen in the supplemental draft, but because he has played defensive end, defensive tackle and linebacker, might draw late-round interest. If he is not chosen, Washington has a good chance of being signed as a free agent for camp.
