Miami Dolphins NFL Supplemental Draft predictions

Miami Dolphins NFL Supplemental Draft predictions

The NFL held its annual Supplemental Draft on Wednesday.

The supplemental draft will take place on Wednesday at 11 AM MT, with a predetermined order that is not known by the teams.

In most years, the supplemental draft comes and goes without much buzz. Beal was graded as a preseason third-round pick by Optimum Scouting, and he garnered similar grades from National Football League scouting services and teams. They were one of 30 teams not to make a selection. Louis Rams used a fifth-round pick on Clemson offensive tackle Isaiah Battle, that is expected to change this year. There are a few players who warrant a look or two. The Giants took former Western Michigan cornerback Sam Beal in Round 3 before Washington tapped Virginia Tech corner Adonis Alexander in the sixth round.

Beal's got good straight line speed and explosion, but great ankles for the position and loose enough hips to be a solid cover corner. He did not attend spring practices before his ineligibility was announced and has received mixed reviews from those informed about the program. The Cleveland Browns have two picks in next year's third round. He started 23 of 37 games and concluded his career with 96 tackles (68 solo), two interceptions and 21 passes defensed.

Along with the academic issues, Alexander was also arrested on a charge of marijuana possession in 2016. Tomlinson signed a three-year extension last month.

The Browns (0-16) and Giants (2-14) are the only teams with a better chance of holding the first overall pick than the Colts.

The Giants were one of 32 teams that reportedly were in attendance for Beal's pro day, where he impressed scouts with his athleticism and size. He has played heavier than that measured weight, so that is not much of a concern.

He has the frame and long arms teams covet, but didn't run well at his pro day and that will hurt him.

However, there is buzz that some teams may be willing to forfeit as high as a second-round selection for Beal. It's not, but there's no way we could have projected him as a guy who could play corner and he wasn't heavily recruited because of questions about his quickness. He is tough against the run and has really good closing burst when getting to the ball. The rising senior is undersized at 6-1, 205 pounds and did not test well at his pre-draft workout. He was suspended for three games during his college career. Ogwoegbu was suspended indefinitely by Oregon State during the spring due to undisclosed reasons.

The Player: Ugwoegbu has a tough road ahead of him. Alexander plays with outstanding body control throughout his coverage, staying close to his receiver and swallowing up cushion as receivers work vertically.

Do teams have to make a pick?
