Browns win supplemental draft lottery, but decline to select anyone

The Browns won the weighted lottery to determine the order of the NFL's supplemental draft Thursday afternoon, but they declined to select a player despite owning the No. 1 slot in each round.

Only two players were chosen -- both in the seventh and final round. BYU running back Harvey Unga went to the Chicago Bears and Illinois defensive tackle Josh Price-Brent was picked by the Dallas Cowboys.

The supplemental draft is designed to give players, who did not enter the NFL draft in April, but have since lost their eligibility for the upcoming college season, another way of entering the NFL.

If a team selects a player in the supplemental draft, it forfeits a pick in the corresponding round of the next regular NFL draft.

The Browns famously acquired quarterback Bernie Kosar in the supplemental draft in 1985.
