We're not expecting the Green Bay Packers to make a selection in Thursday's 2012 NFL Supplemental Draft, but hey, you never know! Don't act like you ever have any idea what Ted Thompson is thinking, and if he sees value, he's going to pick someone up.

The best player available in the Supplemental Draft is a wide receiver named Josh Gordon from Baylor. He had a fantastic sophomore season, then was suspended for his junior season in 2011. He originally planned to transfer to Utah, but instead changed his mind and decided to declare for the Supplemental Draft. He's 6'3", 225, and runs a 40-yard dash in the 4.5 second range. His grade is rumored to be as high as the 2nd round for some teams, though most expect him to go in the 3rd or 4th round.

Running back Ed Wesley from TCU is the only player I could see the Packers possibly spending a 7th round pick on, though I don't expect it. Wesley left school for family reasons, not due to any academic or disciplinary issues. Gordon and Wesley are the only two players who are widely believed to have a chance of being selected.

The draft is at 1 p.m. ET and NFL.com will have details on the picks as they are made, if anyone makes a pick.
