Giants Washington Make Supplemental Draft Selections

Western Michigan cornerback Sam Beal could be a player selected in the 2018 Supplemental Draft Panthers pass on 2018 supplemental draft class

He is the earliest supplemental draft pick since Josh Gordon was taken in Round 2 of the 2012 event, by Cleveland. In fact, two players were chosen during the draft, but none of them went to the Minnesota Vikings. In the sixth round of the NFL Supplemental Draft on Wednesday, the Redskins selected Virginia Tech's Adonis Alexander, who became the second player taken in the 2018 supplemental draft after the Giants took Western Michigan cornerback Sam Beal in the third round. After that group comes the other teams who failed to make the postseason, and then the 12 playoff teams from 2017 round out the draft order.

Interested teams submit bids on players based on the round that they would like to draft the player in. There have not been many players selected in the supplemental draft in recent years that have been highly impactful National Football League players, though players like Terrelle Pryor and Josh Gordon have had varying levels of success.

This year's draft will begin at 1 p.m. ET.

According to Tony Pauline of DraftAnalyst.com, the Colts are one of four teams who have met with Alexander.

In college: Beal played all over the field in high school, but moved to cornerback full time as a freshman in 2015.

Farrell's take: Despite just two in-state offers, we liked Bryant a lot and made him a high three-star because he had size, was filled out and liked to hit.

In the case of Beal, he has been declared academically ineligible for the 2018 season.

Before we get to the actual picks, the supplemental draft is much different than the NFL Draft. These players chose to submit paperwork for the Supplemental Draft rather than sit out the season or transfer to a lower level of competition.

Though he'll be behind Jamal Adams, Marcus Maye and J.J. Wilcox on the depth chart, Bryant will absolutely help contribute on special teams and as the third safety when called upon. 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. 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.

He has the frame and long arms teams covet, but didn't run well at his pro day and that will hurt him. Battle has bounced around from the Rams to the Chiefs to the Seahawks Fbut has yet to see action in a regular-season game.

He was clocked at 4.47 in the 40-yard dash at his Pro Day.

The Colts have some draft capital in 2019 to play with.
