NFL's 2018 supplemental draft will take place July 11

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

Beal was the 44th player selected in the NFL Supplemental Draft since its inception in 1977.

Beal is only the 44rd player taken in the supplemental draft since its inception in 1977. Virginia Tech confirmed in June he was no longer a member of the team after Alexander announced through his agent he was academically ineligible for the 2018 season. The field is limited to players who are at least three years removed from high school but have lost collegiate eligibility, usually for academic or legal reasons.

Others in the supplemental draft are Mississippi State safety Brandon Bryant, Oregon State linebacker Bright Ugwoegbu and Grand Valley State running back Marty Carter. Should there be more than one team that places a bid in the same round, then the team with the higher selection in that round gets the player's rights.

Beal and Alexander were among the five eligible prospects to get taken in the supplemental draft. When a player is selected in the supplemental draft, the team that selects him loses that pick in the following year's regular draft.

For a team to get a player, they must send in a round they would take that prospect.

Alexander becomes the Redskins' first supplemental pick since they used a third-round choice on defensive lineman Jeremy Jarmon in 2009. Here's a look at the five players - in alphabetical order - and what they could bring to their future pro teams. Cleveland won Josh Gordon in the 2012 Supplemental Draft, and back in 1985 the Browns scored Bernie Kosar with a first-round pick in that year's edition.

Beal joins a Giants defense that allowed the second-most passing yards in 2017 (252.4 per game), though NY was 19th in pass defense DVOA (defense-adjusted value over average), per Football Outsiders.




Alexander is known for his size (6-foot-2, 195 pounds) and is the product of a Hokies program that has traditionally churned out strong corners.

The Washington Redskins selected Alexander with pick No. 20 in the sixth round of the National Football League supplemental draft. However, he's a two-year starter and has impressive numbers over three seasons, including 21 passes defended two interceptions and a forced fumble.

I think the Cardinals could really use Bryant for safety depth, but they weren't at his workout, so I dropped them from the list.

This is nitpicking to some degree, but Beal's hands actually come into question - which is surprising, considering the fact that he's a former wide receiver.

Based on what he's put on tape, production and athletic testing, Beal could potentially go in the second round of a normal draft. Still, without much time to prepare for his pro day, Beal stood out with good jumping numbers and a solid 40-yard dash (4.47 seconds).

The Texans, however, are primed to make a splash in the supplemental draft. If the Bucs are interested, offering up a late-round pick might be the move for a team that needs corner help immediately. The Bucs grabbed him for a third-round pick.
