Former Boise State cornerback Quaylon Ewing-Burton was not selected in Thursday's NFL Supplemental Draft. Ewing-Burton was one of eight players eligible for the draft.
Former Baylor wide receiver Josh Gordon was the only player selected. He was picked by the Browns in the second round. Cleveland will forfeits its second-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
Former Boise State cornerback Quaylon Ewing-Burton is among eight players eligible for Thursday's NFL Supplemental Draft. Ewing-Burton was dismissed from the team earlier this year.
Ewing-Burton, a sophomore during the 2011 season, did not live up to the standards of the program, a team spokesman said in January.
Ewing-Burton played in all 13 games for Boise State (12-1). He recorded 26 tackles. Ewing-Burton was forced into the starting lineup after an injury to Jerrell Gavins. He started four games, including strong performances against Nevada (six tackles) and Fresno State (nine).
But he lost his place in the starting lineup and is probably best remembered for his struggles against TCU. Ewing-Burton was in defense on Horned Frogs' wide receiver Josh Boyce for the game-winning 2-point conversion in the Broncos' 36-35 home loss.
He did not have a tackle in the last four games of the season.
Here is a feature story colleague Chadd Cripe did on Ewing-Burton, which highlighted some problems issues he had during his high school career and "maturity' concerns early in his Boise State career.
Starting cornerbacks Jamar Taylor and Gavins are expected back for the 2012 season.
