Ex-UConn Player Sean McQuillan Not Picked In NFL Supplemental Draft

Former UConn tight end will try the NFL free agency route

Sean McQuillan, the former UConn tight end from Glastonbury, was not selected in Thursday's NFL supplemental draft. He now becomes an unrestricted free agent.

Clemson offensive tackle Isaiah Battle was the only player chosen. He went to the the St. Louis Rams in the fifth round, which means they give up their fifth-round pick in 2016.

The players in the supplemental draft couldn't participate in May's regular draft because of reasons ranging from academic deficiencies to disciplinary problems.

McQuillan will appear at Superior Court in Rockville Thursday to face charges of assault and disorderly conduct, stemming from an April fight with a person identified in a court document as his roommate. McQuillan got his degree in economics in May, but he was not allowed back to school, where he had another year of eligibility.

The other players eligible for the supplemental draft were Darrius Caldwell, DE, West Georgia; Eric Eiland, DE, Houston; Kevin Short, DB, Kansas; Dalvon Stuckey, DT, West Georgia; and Adrian Wilkins, WR, North Carolina Central.

"While we are disappointed that Sean was not selected in the supplemental draft we're hopeful that Sean will have the opportunity to work out for NFL teams in the coming weeks," said Brandon Taylor, McQuillan's agent.
