Last year it was held on July 12th 1pm (EST) So sometime in July we'll see who is interested in Alexander. I would love to see a Steelers surprise participation. 8-)

Can I get a ruling on the name here?
Seems like he could either be a stud or bust, just from that

What is his wrist circumference? Did he ever work in a bank or is he from Detroit?

Two more notable names expected to apply for entry to the NFL supplemental draft, per sources: former Mississippi State DB Brandon Bryant and former Western Michigan CB Sam Beal. Both have draftable talent. https://twitter.com/TomPelissero/status ... 4776314882
Any interest? Anyone have any info on either? FC, Ice, gyst, B2B, jebrick?

Over the past two days, Alexander met with the New York Jets, New Orleans Saints, Kansas City Chiefs and Indianapolis Colts. http://draftanalyst.com/adonis-alexande ... t-26-teams
Looking like it may take a higher pick than mid-round to get Alexander with all this interest. July 11 Supplemental Draft.

PFT said either 26 or 28 teams watched him work out.

Bryant is an athletic fast SS that hits hard. May not be smart enough for the NFL but is fast enough.

Beal is a 5th to 7th rounder.

Of all of them Bryant interests me the most. I would worry that he is Mike Michell 2.0 but for a 6th round pick with someone with 4.3-4.4 speed

I'm not holding my breath the Steelers are considering drafting any of these guys. Their academic ineligibility to continue their college careers are telling. You're right about Bryant. Personally, I would try to get Beal.

I’d be surprised if Bryant is taken. He’s more of an athlete than a football player to begin with, and had serious discipline issues both on and off the field. We’ll have more on these three soon. https://www.si.com/nfl/2018/06/21/offse ... ium=social


Quote:
Western Michigan cornerback Sam Beal is filing to enter the NFL’s 2018 supplemental draft, Broncos coach Tim Lester told Yahoo Sports. “He was a joy to coach,” Lester told Yahoo Sports in a phone interview. “I wanted to coach him one more year. When it comes to talent and work ethic, he’s one of the best I’ve ever been around. I’m looking forward to watching him at the next level.” https://sports.yahoo.com/western-michig ... 58248.html


Beal is reportedly a bit raw still, only playing for 2 years at the corner position. He has the athleticism to put himself in the right place at the right time. I've read he's not the most sure tackling corner and has been known to take some questionable angles either over pursuing or not following through on his pursuit. Only 21 years old ran a reported 4.46 40. Not sure what his other numbers are haven't seen them. IMHO, out of the 3 players entering in the supplemental draft Beal is most appealing to me.

If they were to draft any of these supplemental players I think Beal would be the odds on favorite.

Why? Well, it isn't like they would be totally clueless about him. After all, they were scouting his team mate Kieon Adams two years ago, and then they were scouting another of his team mates in Chuks Okorafor this past year. Sort of reminds me of how at times they would just have a run on players at a certain school, like Colorado in the early-mid 90s.

The real issue though is where would Beal fit in? They already have a Pro Bowl caliber (in my opinion) slot CB in Mike Hilton and talented 3rd and 5th round picks in Sutton and Allen. The cupboard is as well stocked as I can remember. I don't see there being any real interest in Beal or any player in this supplemental draft, unless some stud OLB/edge rusher somehow were available and fell to them.
