Colts could be bidders in supplemental draft

The Redskins lose a sixth-round pick in the 2019 draft by selecting Alexander, but the team expects to add two compensatory sixth-rounders in 2019 based on free agency losses.

The supplemental draft typically comes and goes without much fanfare or excitement from anyone, but this year is shaping up to be much different. That means that the Giants will have to forfeit a third-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Given the Chiefs' needs, he believes that the team is in a prime position to take Beal with a potential second round choice.

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

From a production standpoint, Beal did a good job in the past two seasons making plays on the ball.

The Cleveland Browns have had some success in the supplemental draft. For the first time since Isaiah Battle in 2015, a selection was made during the event. The last (and only) time the Atlanta Falcons did so was in 1980, when they threw a seventh-rounder at defensive end Matthew Teague. The quarterback whose pass he intercepted was Sam Darnold, the third overall selection of the 2018 draft. The winning bidder agrees to give up the round selection in the following year's National Football League draft. He entered the supplemental draft after being ruled academically ineligible for what would have been his senior season. Perhaps, but it's likely the same price another team would've paid. There are off-field issues with Alexander (like nearly all Supplemental draft players), as Alexander had issues with academics throughout his college career and a marijuana arrest. A team that drafts him is banking on what he could be down the road. Two players, Grambling State RB Martayveus Carter and Oregon State LB Bright Ugwoegbu, don't have much chance to be drafted.

The Browns learned of their draft order shortly before the draft started at 1 p.m. He was projected to be a top 100 pick in this past year's draft.

Those first 10 teams all submit blind bids if they wish to select any of the players in the current round.

If the Colts believe that roster building is indeed something that happens 12 months a year, Chris Ballard might make a move in the usual quiet month of July. For instance, one team can make a second-round bid on a player. So the Buccaneers could choose to put, say, a fourth-round pick on Beal if he is still available, and if no other team does so they would get their man. They should certainly consider it and potentially bid a late-rounder for a guy like Beal - even though it won't be enough to get him - but anything more than a fifth-round pick should be out of the question. It's a risk to spend a second-round pick in the supplemental draft. Gordon has been very productive when on the field but has missed huge portions of his career due to off-field issues; he returned to the field past year after sitting out almost three seasons.

The Texans, however, are primed to make a splash in the supplemental draft.
