Milton Wright now an NFL free agent after non-selection in Supplemental Draft
Former Purdue wide receiver Milton Wright was not selected in the 2023 NFL Supplemental Draft Tuesday alongside Jackson State WR Malachai Wideman.
The Supplemental Draft has not been necessary in the NFL since 2019. Wright was not in the regular 2023 NFL Draft because he was deemed ineligible for the 2022 CFB season with academic issues.
But Wright has proven he can be a threat at receiver regardless. In 2021, Wright totaled 57 receptions for 732 yards and 7 touchdowns.
Supplemental Draft came and went without either player, Jackson State WR Malachi Wideman or Purdue WR Milton Wright, being selected today, per source. Each is now a free agent.

Wright is now a free agent and will very likely be signed to a squad soon prior to the start of preseason. If a team selects a player in the supplemental draft they lose out on a pick in the regular draft the following season. This is likely why Wright was not selected in the Supplemental Draft this season.
