Entering the supplemental draft. Any chance the Steelers are interested? He was academically ineligible to finish his senior campaign so he has decided to enter the supplemental draft. 6'2-ish/6'3 200lbs...

I don't see the need at Cb but I wonder if Edmunds gives him some 411

I hope so, I had him ranked as one of my top CBs entering the 2017 college football season. Has a lot of potential.

Some talent there but a head case...pot arrest...academic issues...big head at times.

Love his size though. I might consider a late rounder for him.

Could play either Safety or Corner. Has excellent length and decent athleticism. Has the college production desired for transitioning to the Pros. Had he not blown his free ride in college played out this season and waited to be drafted next year. I think he goes fairly high in the draft. In the top rounds. I seriously doubt the Steelers are going to spend a draft pick for this guy. Just wondered what Fury posters thought. Slower part of the year..., good for some discussion. ;)

After this year, you could definitely consider moving Artie Burns or Sean Davis.

IF they play okay/well but others (Sutton et al) play better... you could consider trading one of those two 4th year DBs for some value. IIRC, they'd have one year left on the cheap and then become RFA.

I guess I'm saying... at the right price, adding a cheap rookie with upside might be worthwhile. Maybe Haden hits his downside suddenly–you never know.

Regardless, they're going to have some good problems at DB.

Haden, Joe
Burns, Artie
Davis, Sean
Burnett, Morgan
Edmunds, Terrell
Sutton, Cameron
Berhe, Nat
Allen, Brian
Allen, Marcus
Dangerfield, Jordan
Sensabaugh, Coty
Golden, Malik
Phillips, Dashaun
Johnson, Trey
Summers, Jamar

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?

Any interest? Anyone have any info on either? FC, Ice, gyst, B2B, jebrick?

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.

Quote:
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.

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.
