Simms will not transfer, enter NFL Supplemental Draft



According to a report from Tony Pauline of, former West Virginia wide receiver Marcus Simms will elect to enter the 2019 NFL Supplemental Draft.

Nearly two months ago, Simms threw his name in the NCAA transfer portal, but has since been hinting  that he would possibly take off for the NFL instead.

The supplemental draft is held every year after the NFL’s “regular” draft and is for players, like Simms, who may be suspended, grades, can’t find anywhere else to play, etc. The NFL does not approve everyone and reviews each case carefully. To be eligible for the supplemental draft, you must be at least three years removed from high school.

By submitting himself into the supplemental draft, he will no longer have eligibility remaining in the NCAA.

In three years with West Virginia, Simms totaled 87 receptions for 1,457 yards and 8 touchdowns.
