Colts could be bidders in supplemental draft

Farrell's take: Alexander was a tough one to rank and received a low three-star rating because he was such a tweener He has the size of a linebacker but could cover like a defensive back.

It's not very often there's even one notable player in the Supplemental Draft. 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. A good athlete, Beal does have some flaws.

Like Carter, I haven't done an all-out study on Bright Ugwoegbu, a two-year starter for the Beavers who was returning to Corvallis as one of the leaders on the defensive side of the ball. But those gambles vanished under former general manager Jerry Reese, who placed a premium on every single draft pick. He saw some action, mostly as a reserve, and finished the year with 15 tackles.

A trade could nip that situation in the bud, make the situation right in terms of putting him on a team to start as well as creating the roster space to carry Beal. Within those groups, the order is decided by an NBA-style lottery.

"To select a player in the supplemental draft, a team will submit a bid with a round value attached to a prospect".

Hatch said he's "mostly concerned about some of the things the president is maybe planning to do". Instead, the outlet was told to only share trade stories from Xinhua, the state news agency.

After much talk and visiting several prospects on their pro days as the Kansas City Chiefs had, they came away from the 2018 National Football League supplemental draft empty-handed.

The Redskins and Giants will both forfeit future draft picks for those bids and the other three players now become free agents. That's the biggest caveat.

NY used a first-round pick on Duke quarterback Dave Brown in 1992 and a fourth-round pick on Northeast Louisiana defensive back Tito Wooten in 1994.

The only other team to use a supplemental pick this year was Washington, which selected Virginia Tech CB Adonis Alexander with a sixth-rounder. Bryant is an aggressive alley player who is not afraid to come downhill and square up a ball carrier as a tackler. There are some questions about his college production (just two interceptions), but he and Alexander were projected as potential second-day picks had they entered the draft in April. He's expected to start opposite second-year player Ahkello Witherspoon. They have corners Xavien Howard, Tony Lippett, Cordrea Tankersley and Bobby McCain and safeties Reshad Jones, T.J. They might roll the dice on a late-round bid, but that won't be enough. But the 49ers already have a crowded group in the cornerback room. However, I would not be surprised if a team does take a 7th-round chance on one of them.

Any team that's evaluating Beal has to ask themselves and perhaps bring it up to him that if he's unable or unwilling to take on MAC running backs, how is that situation going to improve against someone like Le'Veon Bell or Todd Gurley.
