Sam Beal needs to be selected in the supplemental draft

Only five players were eligible for this year's supplemental draft, and the Giants waited until the third round to scoop up the most highly regarded of the group.

This is why the supplemental draft is extremely riveting when talented prospects are involved. Washington's DB coach, Torrian Gray, previously played and coached at Tech - both with current Tech defensive coordinator Bud Foster - before jumping to the National Football League coaching ranks.

The Bucs' Supplemental Draft drought is not particularly unusual; the teams in their own division have been just as quiet, for instance.

Beal is the Giants' first supplemental draft selection since 1994, when they chose safety Tito Wooten from Northeast Louisiana in the fourth round. The last (and only) time the Atlanta Falcons did so was in 1980, when they threw a seventh-rounder at defensive end Matthew Teague.

A summer version of rookie acquisition presents itself Wednesday in the form of the supplement draft, held annually for prospects who did not enter the regular draft in April but have since submitted their names and plan to play this season. For Ugwoegbu, NFL teams have no desire to draft a 205-pound LB who ran a 4.97 40-yard dash at his pro day.

The question on Beal is his strength, according to one scout familiar with the prospect.

The New York Giants selected former Western Michigan cornerback Sam Beal in the third round, while the Washington Redskins added former Virginia Tech player Adonis Alexander in the sixth round. If a team doesn't want him at linebacker, they could try and move him to a special teams or box safety role.

The Colts didn't make any additions in the Supplemental Draft and will be entering training camp with a young cornerback room to roam the secondary.

The draft order is determined through a lottery system that allows teams with worse win-loss records a better chance at a higher pick.

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.

Although no players have been selected in the supplemental draft since 2015, when the then-St. He was projected to be a top 100 pick in this past year's draft.

This isn't the Redskins' first dalliance with Virginia Tech players. Quarterback Bernie Kosar was selected in the 1985 supplemental draft and wide receiver Josh Gordon in 2012.

The Rams can't expect to sign everyone, especially with an extension for Aaron Donald likely coming at some point. Although he has average speed, he is very aggressive and can take receivers out of the play if he gets the upper hand early.
