Time: 1 minutes, 28.80 seconds

Bernie Kosar

Bernie Kosar of the University of Miami earned his academic degree a year early but did not enter the regular draft that year. Rather than finish his eligibility at Miami, he entered into talks with his favorite team, the Cleveland Browns. They advised Kosar to delay his professional eligibility until after the regular draft. They then traded for the right to choose first in the Supplemental Draft. This angered many clubs, notably the Minnesota Vikings and New York Giants, who had expressed interest in choosing him in that season's regular draft. Many of today's Supplemental Draft rules aim at preventing a recurrence of this incident.

The first supplemental draft occurred in 1977, when Notre Dame running back Al Hunter was declared academically ineligible to play college football. The 1977 NFL Draft had already taken place, but rather than wait until the 1978 draft and force Hunter to miss an entire season of football, the NFL chose to have a draft specifically for him. ;-D
