I don't see the Steelers having any real interest either. I agree Beal is the most attractive prospect of the 3.

At worst, fast and hard hitting gets you a look on special teams. I'll agree with others that overall I like the idea of Beal the best, but wouldn't overpay for any of them.

Mid to Late Round is what's projected for Beal. If they have an extra 7th RND pick I'd throw it in the hat. ;)

Oregon State outside linebacker Bright Ugwoegbu, who started 20 games during his college career but was suspended indefinitely this spring, has left the program and is making himself available for the NFL supplemental draft. The 6-foot-2, 235-pound rising senior had 55 tackles and one sack last season. Despite missing three games with an ankle injury, Ugwoegbu had 54 tackles and 5 1/2 sacks as a sophomore in 2016.

Those measurables are inaccurate. Really 6'0 226.

I wonder if this might be a year the steelers go into the Supp Draft.

One team told me they viewed Beal as 2nd-round pick had he been in 2018 draft, but that round likely to be lower in sup draft. Keep eye on teams with extra picks in Rounds 3-4 next year, including Browns (Round 3) and Bills (4). https://twitter.com/Gil_Brandt/status/1 ... 5233902592
Fairly expensive....

Late add to supplemental draft pool: Grand Valley State RB Martayveus Carter, one of the top players in D2. That brings number for July 11 draft to 5:

CB Adonis Alexander
CB Sam Beal
S Brandon Bryant
RB Martayveus Carter
LB Bright Ugwoegbu

Honest question...have the Steelers ever used a pick in the supplemental draft?

I don't know of even once they've drafted a player in the supplemental draft. Doesn't mean it's not possible. First time for everything?

With so many teams that are flush with draft picks every year, it does beg the question why wouldn't a team take a chance on players in the supplemental draft. Yeah, there has to be players available to dabble in it but this year there are now 5 players.

Beal would be the only one I am interested in. Hilton is great but strictly a slot CB. I still sort of think that Cam Sutton will ultimately end up as a safety. Haden I like but he has been injury prone the past couple seasons and is making over $9 million a year. Gay is gone, Sensabaugh is meh, you really only have Brian Allen as that potential boundary outside CB. Yeah, Burns is entering just his 3rd season and under contract for 4 years but is he really going to be worth resigning for the huge amount of money that CBs are currently getting? I feel we do have very good depth at CB but there are a lot of ifs and things could unravel quickly, sort of like how we all thought we were set at WR with Bryant coming back, Sammie Coates healed up from injury and Rogers and Brown all good to go. They drafted JuJu in round 2, many complained, felt it wasn't a need, but look one year later, Bryant, Coates and Rogers are not on the team. Jerry Glanville used to say the NFL stands for 'Not for Long'. So, while the CB group looks good on paper, can you ever just stand pat if a prospect you like is available?

A 3rd round pick on Beal might sound ludicrous, but that 3rd round pick might be pick 93-96 the following year. Would you really be able to land a CB like Beal at the end of round 3 in next year's draft? And in the meantime you currently have that player on your team. I wouldn't be against it if they made the pick. And as I posted earlier, they have to be really familiar with him having scouted and drafted his teammates Kieon Adams and Chuks the past two years.

Fully agree Scunge. There can never be enough contingency depth on the roster. If Beal is their choice I'd be good with that. If you read above it was no secret the Steelers seemed interested in the safety Bryant. Attended his pro day. Haven't heard anything relevant to Beal, but like you've mentioned they have to be familiar with him as they've drafted a couple of his team mates already. We'll see. I think Beal is the highest sought after in this supplemental draft. I think Alexander could be that transition type player and he's moved to safety. The rest could go undrafted and be UDFA's....
