New York Giants select CB Sam Beal in supplemental draft

The Giants opted against selecting a defensive back in the 2018 draft, while free-agent signings William Gay and Teddy Williams will likely play reserve roles behind Eli Apple and Janoris Jenkins.

The Giants will give up their 2019 third-round pick and the Redskins will give up their sixth-round pick in the same draft. In OTAS and minicamp, Carrie got the most reps with the first-team defense.

Could the Chiefs replace Peters with Beal in the supplemental draft?

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. The last (and only) time the New Orleans Saints made a pick in this draft was in 1981, when they spent a first-rounder on quarterback Dave Wilson.

The Broncos are in a rare position where the supply meets their potential demand in the supplemental draft. Cleveland is in the first pod, which includes the 10 teams with the worst records in 2017 (see the regular 2018 draft order before trades). There are off-field issues with Alexander (like nearly all Supplemental draft players), as Alexander had issues with academics throughout his college career and a marijuana arrest. He has good length at 6-foot-1, and he has long arms that make it easier for him to break up passes.

One of the big differences is the draft order. He was projected to be a top 100 pick in this past year's draft.

The Browns used a second-rounder on Josh Gordon in 2012, and the Raiders grabbed Terrelle Pryor in the third round a year earlier. That was a shame because it would have been the second selection of that round, number 57 overall.

Below is a list of this year's eligible Supplemental Draft prospects, complete with a brief scouting report, athletic testing results, character and background information, which teams have interest in them and which teams might end up signing them this season.

A three-year starter for the Bulldogs at safety, Bryant primarily lined up to the wide side of the formation as a junior with reps deep and over the slot.

Yes, both the Giants and Redskins selected players.

For instance, if the Chiefs put in a third-round bid for Beal, and Beal is awarded to the Chiefs, they would lose a third-round selection in 2019. It's a risk to spend a second-round pick in the supplemental draft. During his three-year college career, Alexander tallied seven interceptions and 17 passes defended, 91 solo tackles, and one sack.

The New York Giants have historically shied away from the National Football League supplemental draft, selecting only two players in the history of the event. He applied for the supplemental draft after he became academically ineligible for this season. He chose to return to school, but at the start of spring practice he was suspended indefinitely, and later declared for the Supplemental Draft. The Broncos are in the first tier of teams having finished a year ago as the fifth-worst team in the entire league.

Kosar, Humphrey and Moore are among the supplemental picks that worked out well for their teams, as was Navy offensive lineman Mike Wahle to Green Bay in 1998.
