Giants take Sam Beal in third round of supplemental draft

There have been eight players who entered the league as first-round picks in the Supplemental Draft, a lot of them quarterbacks and most during the 1980s. If Beal were eligible for the draft in late April, he likely would have been a second-day pick, taken in the second or, more likely, the third round. The winning bidder agrees to give up the round selection in the following year's National Football League draft. If another team does, then we go to the draft order outlined above.

The draft takes place via digital communication, with teams using a bid system by round, and surrendering their corresponding pick in that round in next year's draft if they hold the highest bid. After all, the last time a team made a selection in the supplemental draft was in 2015 when the Rams selected offensive lineman Isaiah Battle.

This year's draft will begin at 1 p.m. ET. Journeyman Tyvis Powell received first-team reps during the offseason program while 2014 first-round pick Jimmie Ward sat with a minor ankle injury. Reading into how much passing game coordinator Kris Richard prefers length and physicality at cornerback (two things present in Alexander's game) can not overshadow the overall strength of Beal's tape though. But while the athleticism is there, Bryant plays out of scheme way too often and remains raw.

From a production standpoint, Beal did a good job in the past two seasons making plays on the ball.

The Washington Redskins have added to their secondary in the 2018 NFL Supplemental Draft, selecting cornerback Adonis Alexander in the sixth round. You can read about the supplemental draft process here. But due to a lack of academic credits, Beal's senior season was in jeopardy.

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.

Others in the supplemental draft are Mississippi State safety Brandon Bryant, Oregon State linebacker Bright Ugwoegbu and Grand Valley State running back Marty Carter.

Teams can submit bids for players in a sort of silent auction.

The Colts will be part of the first group along with the Cleveland Browns (0-16), New York Giants (3-13), Houston Texans (4-12), New York Jets (5-11), Denver Broncos (5-11), Chicago Bears (5-11), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (5-11), San Francisco 49ers (6-10), Miami Dolphins (6-10) and Oakland Raiders (6-10).

If the Colts do take someone, it would be a sign that Ballard is willing to take chances on players. They all showed flashes of pro potential. Essentially, both teams are getting their picks a year early.

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