Battle was selected in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Supplemental Draft on July 9th. He was the first player chosen in the supplemental draft since 2012 (WR Josh Gordon).
The Rams had to forfeit their team's 2016 NFL 5th round pick for selecting Battle.
“We appreciate all that Isaiah has done for the program the last three years,” Swinney said in a press release back in late June. “He has made great progress in his development and has been a big contributor to our success the last three years, especially in each of the last three bowl games when he had outstanding games against very talented defensive lines from LSU, Ohio State and Oklahoma. We wish him well in his pursuit of a professional career.”
