New York Giants select CB Sam Beal in supplemental draft

Thursday, 12 Jul, 2018

Cameron Brate), claimed players off waivers (e.g. Teams can bid a future draft pick for a player and they will be awarded that player if no teams above them put in a bid first.

Last year, a player like Beal might have been on the field pretty quickly for the Browns, but with the investment at the position, the Browns appear to be substantially improved, making it more hard for a player like Beal to crack the lineup. That means that the Giants will have to forfeit a third-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. In OTAS and minicamp, Carrie got the most reps with the first-team defense.

But with Reese now gone and the more ambitious Dave Gettleman having taken over, the Giants once again dipped into the supplemental draft pool.

If the Colts do take someone, it would be a sign that Ballard is willing to take chances on players.

So, how does the supplemental draft work? So, he chose to change his plans and enter the supplemental draft. Teams with the fewest wins have the best chance of getting a higher pick, similar to the NBA's draft lottery.

- What really matters: Bryant was ruled academically ineligible for 2018, and having already used his redshirt, he had no other alternative but to enter the Supplemental Draft.

One or two teams could pad those totals this year, however, perhaps even the Buccaneers.

Three of the five players in the supplemental draft are defensive backs.

The NFL will conduct their annual supplemental draft on Wednesday, July 11 and according to NFLDraftScout.com analyst Dane Brugler, Cleveland Browns general manager John Dorsey may draft Western Michigan cornerback Sam Beal. The Bucs grabbed him for a third-round pick.

The other two players available are less likely to be drafted Wednesday: Grand Valley State running back Marty Carter and Oregon State linebacker Bright Ugwoegbu.

One thing to know about the Supplemental Draft is that it is not executed in the same way as the regular draft. That was a shame because it would have been the second selection of that round, number 57 overall. The NFL Supplemental Draft takes place today at 12 noon CT. The Charlotte native picked off seven passes during his three-year career and is a long-armed defender who can get physical with wide receivers at the line of scrimmage. For instance, one team can make a second-round bid on a player. In fact, there could be as three players selected this season. It's a risk to spend a second-round pick in the supplemental draft. He finished his career with just two interceptions in 23 starts.

Browns fans are more familiar with this process than most teams.

Beal, 21, declared for the draft this spring because his academic eligibility was up in the air. His hips are pretty good and he's able to make turns and run with opponents.

Spending an early pick on a cornerback who won't play this season seems irresponsible, especially for a team that's going all in on winning a title next season.
