Giants snag touted cornerback in NFL's supplemental draft

Western Michigan cornerback Sam Beal could be a player selected in the 2018 Supplemental Draft

The Houston Texans cornerback cupboard is barer than it has been in a long time.

So, if you bid a third rounder on one of the players, and you get that player, the team loses their 2019 third-round selection.

Most teams don't use very high picks on players due to the nature of these players' availability typically coming from some type of off-field issue.

Brandon Bryant didn't have to wait long to be acquired after being passed over in Wednesday's supplemental draft. Although he has average speed, he is very aggressive and can take receivers out of the play if he gets the upper hand early.

So, how does the supplemental draft work? The Giants now have 2019 picks in Rounds 1-6 with their seventh-round selection dependent on punter Riley Dixon's production.

Such a move would only be fitting as the Browns have been front and center in free agency, the trade market and the 2018 NFL Draft.

Let's take a look at five teams who might target the former Hokie come Wednesday.

Beal is the most pro-ready player of the three and had he been in the 2018 NFL Draft, he likely would've been ranked among the top cornerbacks in the class.

Indianapolis is one of four teams reported to have met with Alexandria.

In college: After redshirting in 2014, Bryant had his best year as a college player in 2015, recording 63 tackles and three interceptions along with 1.5 sacks and a defensive touchdown.

Virginia Tech's Adonis Alexander could be the next big name in the National Football League to be selected from the supplemental draft. The third group has all the teams that did make the playoffs.

The upside to selecting an intriguing prospect in the Supplemental Draft is that it is essentially the last opportunity to find a difference-making talent before the start of training camp. That means that the Giants will have to forfeit a third-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. He's only on a one-year deal, the money another team would take on is minimal and as discussed previously, there's a sense that he's less than thrilled about his situation after being led to believe he was brought in to be a starter. That was a shame because it would have been the second selection of that round, number 57 overall.

And yes, teams bid blindly giving a draft-round grade (1-7) for each man available. If a player is not selected in the first round, the process repeats in the second round, and so on. Jones proved previous year that he has a lot of talent and can take on a featured role in Green Bay's offense. So, he made a decision to change his plans and enter the supplemental draft.

Could the Chiefs replace Peters with Beal in the supplemental draft?

The Texans, however, are primed to make a splash in the supplemental draft. That list started with Wilson to New Orleans, as noted above, and then continued with Kosar in 1985.
