6 Teams Interested In Supplemental OT Isaiah Battle, Likely To Be Late-Round Pick

Jason Cole reports that Clemson OT Isaiah Battle had a “good, not great” Pro Day this week.

Battle reportedly has six teams around the NFL who are currently interested in the supplemental draft prospect.

According to Cole, Battle projects to be a right tackle, but there is at least a chance he could play left tackle at the next level. Cole mentions Chargers RT D.J. Fluker as an NFL comparison for Battle.

Some around the league consider Battle’s off-the-field issues to be “significant” and could lead to him dropping to the fifth- or sixth-round of the draft.

Even so, Cole has spoken to sources who have said that Battle could still go as high as the fourth-round.

Recent reports mentioned that 26 NFL teams were on hand for Battle’s Pro Day on Tuesday, so it will be interesting to see where he goes.

For what it’s worth, the Eagles, Falcons, Dolphins, Giants and Jets have all come up as speculative options for Battle.

During his time at Clemson, Battle appeared in 27 games and received 16 starts.

He was suspended in 2013 for punching a player, and was suspended a second time last season for disciplinary reasons. Battle was also pulled over for speeding in early June and caught with marijuana. He received citations for both incidents, but wasn’t not charged or arrested in either case.

The 2015 Supplemental Draft class also consists of six other prospects: Houston DE Eric Eiland, UConn TE Sean McQuillan, Kansas DB Kevin Short, West Georgia DT Dalvon Stuckey, West Georgia DE Darrius Caldwell, and North Carolina Central WR Adrian Wilkins.
