New York Giants Paid a Big but Worthwhile Price for Sam Beal

Scouting Sam Beal What the Giants are getting in their supplemental draft pick Scouting Sam Beal What the Giants are getting in their supplemental draft pick

The Giants twice before dipped into this draft to take a player, selecting quarterback Dave Brown in the first round in 1992 and safety Tito Wooten in the fourth round in 1994. When a player is selected in the supplemental draft, the team that selects him loses that pick in the following year's regular draft. Kevin Johnson had his fifth-year option picked up but, he's been hurt frequently and plays too inconsistently. Bryant missed spring practice for academic reasons and elected to enter the supplemental draft late in the spring. Cleveland won Josh Gordon in the 2012 Supplemental Draft, and back in 1985 the Browns scored Bernie Kosar with a first-round pick in that year's edition.

The Washington Redskins have added to their secondary in the 2018 NFL Supplemental Draft, selecting cornerback Adonis Alexander in the sixth round.

Giants rookies report to training camp July 22 and Beal will be behind, as he embarks on his National Football League career without any spring work with the team.

The catch with all of this is that if your team winds up drafting a player, then they forfeit the corresponding selection in the normal NFL Draft next year.

Why He's Available: Ruled academically ineligible this spring. He's long at almost 6-foot-3 and well-built at 195 pounds but perhaps in need of a little filling out.

Versatility and unpredictability, those are two traits the Giants defense can take advantage of by adding the former Hokie. He also had solid balls skills as well and solid instincts. Now, Alexander has failed multiple drug tests and is on probation after being cited for marijuana possession back in April. He told NFL.com that he has been working on his maturity and growing up over the past year.

I have not studied Carter as of this point, but he is a two-year starter who made the most of his limited reps, earning first-team All-GLIAC honors in both years.

Beal also has good size (6-1, 178) and has the speed and athleticism new defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus craves.

Beal and Alexander figure to interest Indianapolis the most.

It might take a considerable draft asset, but if Beal is as good as advertised, the Chiefs could shore up a major area of concern for the present and the future with the right move. He started 23 of 37 games and concluded his career with 96 tackles (68 solo), two interceptions and 21 passes defensed. He's got a well-built frame at 5-11, 207 (usually listed a little heavier). Bryant is an aggressive alley player who is not afraid to come downhill and square up a ball carrier as a tackler.

Bryant's interviews with the Colts and the Baltimore Ravens were his favorite, according to Chase Goodbread of NFL.com.

The Player: Carter is estimated about 6-foot, 200 pounds, although he did not have time for a pro day to verify his measurables.
