NFL Supplemental Draft 2018: Sam Beal Headlines Players Selected

Scouting Sam Beal What the Giants are getting in their supplemental draft pick

There had been 45 picks in the history of the supplemental draft, according to Elias Sports Bureau.

Chances are, that streak will continue, even though this year's Supplemental Draft does have some players that are deemed potentially worthy of selection.

So, for instance, if Indianapolis bid on Alexander in the third round and won the player, the team would give up its third-round pick in April 2019. Faced with some academic issues that might have prevented him from regaining eligibility for his senior season, Beal was compelled to enter the supplemental draft this summer. Back then, I was probably a more in-the-moment guy. In all, Beal is one of the best supplemental draft prospects in the past few years. Each group has its own lottery drawing to determine the order, which is decided shortly before the supplemental draft starts. There is simply nothing bad that jumps out at you about him. They are Adonis Alexander of Virginia Tech, Sam Beal of Western Michigan, and Brandon Bryant of Mississippi State. He quickly developed and turned into a standout player for the Broncos.

To make room for Alexander on the roster, the Redskins waived punter Sam Irwin-Hill after signing him as a free agent in March. The promising cornerback, who was a two-year starter at Western Michigan, provides the Giants with an injection of talent at a position of need.

So, he's a solid athlete, good football player, with no red flags.

In a year or two, perhaps the Giants will look back on the gamble they took Wednesday and nod in approval. Unfortunately, he was a little behind on credits and was facing ineligibility.

This would also fly in the face of the type of corners the Browns have been adding this season.

None of these things fit the Cleveland Browns.

Why should the Houston Texans target him?

There is, however, one player pool into which the Buccaneers have not dipped in a very long time. Johnathan Joseph is on his last legs. Kevin Johnson had his fifth-year option picked up but, he's been hurt frequently and plays too inconsistently. That turn of events angered several other teams and directly led to a change in the way the Supplemental Draft is conducted.

Defensive coordinator James Bettcher will also implement a blitz-heavy scheme based on evidence from his past three seasons at Arizona. The highest "bidder" gets that player, but then has to forfeit the corresponding pick in 2019. Remember, the Colts have an extra second-round selection from the trade with the Jets.

Beal is expected to be a third-round pick in the draft but, the Texans should take the risk and bid a second. He's got man cover skills for a safety and should be able to help in that fashion. Although he has average speed, he is very aggressive and can take receivers out of the play if he gets the upper hand early.

There have been some talented players acquired in this process over the years.

Unlike the Giants, pass defense was a strength for Washington in 2017.
