First, let's look at what this "other" draft even is during the month of July.
Perhaps, the reason why the Texans haven't selected anyone in the supplemental draft since them is that neither turned out great. With three defensive backs potentially getting selected in Wednesday's draft, teams will have the chance to add a legitimate Day 1 starter in the middle of July - something that nearly never happens.
The New York Giants have historically shied away from the National Football League supplemental draft, selecting only two players in the history of the event. He had issues with marijuana in college and after multiple things declared for the supplemental draft. After looking like a potential high draft pick, he took a step back in 2017, playing in just eight games and recording 27 tackles and one interception.More news: Del Potro sets up Nadal clash at Wimbledon
Teams are divided up into 3 groups based off wins. In this particular case, the Chicago Bears fall in the first grouping.
For draft order, teams are divided into three groups: all teams with six or fewer victories in 2018, non-playoff teams with at least seven victories, and all 12 playoff teams. It's unclear if Denver did not place any bids or if they were simply beat out by teams higher than them in the draft order. The Houston Texans should bid a second-round pick on him. When a player is selected in the supplemental draft, the team that selects him loses that pick in the following year's regular draft. Why not keep going by making a splash in the usually quiet Supplemental Draft as well. Kevin Johnson had his fifth-year option picked up but, he's been hurt frequently and plays too inconsistently.
So why might the Colts change this narrative? He wouldn't hear from the NCAA until right before the season started. Yes, you have Quincy Wilson and Nate Hairston as young guys.
The Broncos have an extra selection in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft thanks to the Trevor Siemian trade, but now, do not have extra picks on day one or two of the 2019 Draft or any compensatory picks coming.More news: Follow the World Cup semifinal between England and Croatia
Beal and Alexander figure to interest Indianapolis the most.
Alexander, on the other hand, may need to switch from corner to safety in the NFL.
This year's crop of players is notable and much more talented than in years past. Wide receiver Josh Gordon was a second-round pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2012. They are also in line for a 4 round selection via the compensatory route, thanks to Donte Moncrief signing with the Jaguars. Beal's length and speed allow him to be pretty tight coverage, end up in a receiver's hip pocket and able to make plays on the ball. For a team with answers on both outside roles, the concern is understandable. The fact he could doesn't mean he should as he's far closer to a third or fourth round prospect, but desperation and the lack of options might make what is normally a pretty conservative process have teams be more aggressive with Beal.More news: Greece expels Russian diplomats for meddling in domestic affairs
