New York Giants select CB Sam Beal in supplemental draft

New York Giants select CB Sam Beal in supplemental draft

He had issues with marijuana in college and after multiple things declared for the supplemental draft.

The supplemental draft typically comes and goes without much fanfare or excitement from anyone, but this year is shaping up to be much different.

Beal, who was taken with the second pick in the third round Wednesday, is the highest-drafted player in the supplemental draft since wide receiver Josh Gordon went in the second round in 2012. Alexander and Beal were actually expected to be early-round picks in the 2019 NFL Draft.

However, that doesn't mean that other franchises haven't acquired some great players through the Supplemental Draft.

That trend is likely to change on Wednesday at 1 p.m. with five talented prospects throwing their respective hats into the National Football League ring. He indicated that the Giants were able to conduct a "very thorough conversation" with the team's scouts who had seen Beal. At least one team reportedly had a second-round grade on Beal. But while the athleticism is there, Bryant plays out of scheme way too often and remains raw.

Thanks for the memories England! He added: "Let me tell you, whether we win or lose the game, my life will not change", he said. And fans in Zagreb went wild as their team moved on, cheering and waving flags in the streets.

There were a few players that might have had the Colts' interest, including Beal. He applied for the supplemental draft after he became academically ineligible for this season.

A Sporting News story lists more than half of the NFL's teams as potential participants, but not the Lions. Two players were taken, which hasn't happened since 2010. Each team gets a chance to put in a bid or bids on players at the beginning of each round.

This is why the supplemental draft is extremely riveting when talented prospects are involved. The three others - Mississippi State safety Brandon Bryant, Grand Valley State running back Marty Carter and Oregon State linebacker Bright Ugwoegbu - are free agents that can sign with any team. They also sent a seventh-rounder to the Giants in the Alec Ogletree trade, leaving them with picks in Rounds 1 and 3-6.

Washington now has drafted five Virginia Tech defenders since 2015, including Alexander's Hokies teammates DT Tim Settle (Round 5) and CB Greg Stroman (Round 7), back in April. He's a fantastic athlete, as shown by his Pro Day testing, and with added time for preparation might have been even more impressive. The Raiders selected Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor in the third round of the 2011 Supplemental Draft and Pryor has since converted to receiver and had a big year for the Browns in 2016. Add in the fact the coaching staff is anything but certain beyond 2018 and using a 2019 draft asset on a player for 2018, which may then not fit a new coaching staff doesn't seem prudent.
