Should the Colts Take Anyone in the Supplemental Draft?

Adonis Alexander will join the Redskins’ defensive backfield

All too willing to let himself be blocked out of a play with little resistance, his interest in playing the run is nearly non-existent.

The Lions have only ever selected one player in any supplemental draft.

Miller wrote Beal was "the best prospect to enter the league's supplemental draft in a long time".

As a quick summary, know that the draft order is different from April's. Group two is for teams that won at least six games but wound up missing the playoffs.

Our friends over at NFLMocks.com have a great piece up on the supplemental draft and the prospects involved.

And it's not really a draft, it's more of an auction or a waiver system.

It was Beal's ability to lock down receivers that made him the first supplemental pick since the Rams selected running back Isaiah Battle in the fifth round of the 2015 draft. For instance, one team can make a second-round bid on a player. They emphasized acquiring picks for the NFL Draft, so it would be shocking to see them part with one of those picks to take a player in the supplemental draft.

The only time it happened in Belgian football was in 1986, when we finished fourth. We've been playing well, we're learning and we're all enjoying it.

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

It's been pretty rare for a player to be taken by any team in the Supplemental Draft in recent years. Two players, Grambling State RB Martayveus Carter and Oregon State LB Bright Ugwoegbu, don't have much chance to be drafted. Nearly every team in the league has made a Supplemental Draft pick at some point in its history, since the process first began in 1977, but few have gone back to the well often. If a team doesn't want him at linebacker, they could try and move him to a special teams or box safety role. The fact he could doesn't mean he should as he's far closer to a third or fourth round prospect, but desperation and the lack of options might make what is normally a pretty conservative process have teams be more aggressive with Beal. Other CB needy teams like the Seahawks or a darkhorse like the Cowboys or Eagles could be a fit. The Chiefs could add a prized corner in Beal and still have a full draft class in 2019. The first few waves of free agency came and went without a considerable acquisition to shore up the spot. He's good in coverage and has the length and speed to thrive in the NFL.

With the Lions already down a pick, it seems very unlikely that GM Bob Quinn would spend more of his 2019 draft capital.

Beal has palpable upside at cornerback, with the potential to become a very good starter in the NFL.

However, there is buzz that some teams may be willing to forfeit as high as a second-round selection for Beal. Unfortunately, Alexander's poor grades led to academic ineligibility.

Alexander has always been a favorite of mine and he's a classic Seahawks-style cornerback (which makes Seattle a contender here too).

The Hokies also suspended Alexander in 2016 following an arrest for misdemeanor marijuana possession. Alexander gets a round 3/4 grade from me because of his upside, but a 40-yard dash near the 4.60 range hurts. Brett Veach has talked up Will Redmond and Keith Reaser during the offseason, but those guys have been available for any team to claim on multiple occasions. Beal is tall and he can run, which is shown on tape, but confirmed at pro day.
