Among the players claimed by the Demons Friday, seven have NFL experience and lineman Mike Kiselak, the only offensive player picked, has played extensively in three leagues since starting his professional career in 1990, including seven starts at center for the Dallas Cowboys in 1998.

San Francisco picked five defensive linemen in the supplemental draft, including NFL veterans Jomo Cousins (Arizona), Eric England (Arizona) and Lemanzer Williams (Jacksonville). The other linemen taken were Pene Talamaivo (Utah) and Barry Mitchell (Idaho).

The other defender with NFL experience taken by the Demons is cornerback Lance Brown (Arizona-Pittsburgh). Also selected were safety Kevin Kaesviharn (Iowa Barnstormers) and cornerback Lance Sutton (East Texas State).

The 10 players secured in the supplemental draft will begin practice with the Demons at training camp in Las Vegas, starting Wednesday, January 3.
