The Green Bay Packers have the opportunity to add to their roster on Thursday through the NFL's annual supplemental draft, which takes place at 12:00 p.m. CT.
There are four players eligible, although none have the raw talent of wide receiver Josh Gordon, who was selected by the Cleveland Browns in the supplemental draft two years ago.
Running back Traylon Shead of SMU, linebacker Darius Lipford of North Carolina, wide receiver Chase Clayton of New Mexico and defensive tackle LaKendrick Ross of Virginia-Lynchburg are the four players eligible to be selected.
The best analysis of all four players probably comes from Rob Rang of CBSSports.com, where the injury red flags or academic problems of each player are detailed.
Seeing as just 43 players have been taken in the supplemental draft since 1977, the odds of the Packers selecting a player are quite low, although perhaps not out of the question entirely.
Should the Packers happen to take a player in the supplemental draft, they will forfeit a draft choice in the corresponding round in 2015.
If any of the players go undrafted, they become a free agent and are eligible to sign with any team. And it's worth noting that the Packers do have one roster spot open with 89 of 90 possible berths filled.
Also on Thursday, the Packers will reportedly release their annual financial results in advance of the shareholders meeting:

Elsewhere, Packers kicker Mason Crosby will take part in a fundraiser at his high school alma mater in Georgetown, Tex., according to local ABC affiliate KVUE.
Raising funds for The Locker, which provides various assistance to children in need, a tailgate party will take place from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Georgetown Community Center. Admission is $50 per person.
Finally, the official youth football camps of the Green Bay Packers continue in Kenosha and Oshkosh on Thursday.
Children ages 6 to 14 will take part from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Kenosha YMCA and Oshkosh Community YMCA, now in the fourth day of a weeklong event.
