Post Matt Leinart to go supplemental?


The Post has learned that two-time Heisman Trophy winner Matt Leinart is considering attempting to qualify for the supplemental draft, which would allow him to play in the NFL this fall. Leinart would either have to graduate USC in May or drop out of school to qualify, according to Greg Aiello, the league's VP of public relations.

"The purpose of the supplemental draft is not a means for players to avoid the regular draft," Aiello said. "You have to qualify."

Should Leinart enter the supplemental draft, which would be held in July, the 49ers would have the best chance at the top pick, but it would not be guaranteed. The league would conduct a weighted lottery with teams divided into three categories ? those with six or fewer wins, non-playoff teams and playoff teams.

A Southern Cal spokesman told The Post that Leinart, who lost offensive coordinator Norm Chow to the NFL's Titans, has alerted the school that he didn't plan to graduate until after the fall semester.

Hey Matt, if you are smart... DECLARE!
