Sam Beal fills significant need for New York Giants



- 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.

The last exciting player selected in a supplemental draft was Josh Gordon, who was picked by the Cleveland Browns with a second-round selection in 2012.

The New York Giants selected former Western Michigan Broncos cornerback Sam Beal in the third round, Bleacher Report's Matt Miller reported. For example, if a team claims a player in the second round, they can no longer use that second-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Beal was widely regarded as a potential first-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. They still have all their other remaining picks in next year's draft, except for in Round 7, trading their own original pick and acquiring the Rams' choice.

That trend is likely to change on Wednesday at 1 p.m. with five talented prospects throwing their respective hats into the National Football League ring.

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. Whichever team places the highest bid on a specific player gets the rights to draft him.

Indianapolis is one of four teams reported to have met with Alexandria. If the Texans take the risk, Beal could reward it with years of solid play. Alexander plays physical, but if he doesn't overcome the speed issues, he'll be the next in a growing line of lanky CBs who can't make it in the NFL. The Washington Redskins also selected Virginia Tech Hokies cornerback Adonis Alexander, per NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. But due to a lack of academic credits, Beal's senior season was in jeopardy. To determine that, teams are divided up into three groups: Teams that won fewer than five games, teams that won more than five games but missed the playoffs and then playoff teams. Of the defensive backs available in this Supplemental Draft, I think he has the most natural ability to find the ball late in the down.

Do teams have to make a pick?

Three players will become undrafted free agents: Mississippi State safety Brandon Bryant, Grand Valley State running back Martayveus Carter and Oregon State linebacker Bright Ugwoegbu. Still, without much time to prepare for his pro day, Beal stood out with good jumping numbers and a solid 40-yard dash (4.47 seconds).

Washington was in on Alexander, attending his pro day, and had a need at corner.

The previous season, Beal played in 14 games with 12 starts and had a career-high 55 tackles (39 solo), plus eight passes defensed.
