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

Other recent supplemental draft picks include Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon in 2012 and quarterback Terrelle Pryor the year before by the Oakland Raiders.

Based on what he's put on tape, production and athletic testing, Beal could potentially go in the second round of a normal draft.

For as good as Beal's flashes are, this is a player that lacks a clear plan on every snap.

They really could use a young cornerback.

- Scouting report: A two-year starter at Western Michigan, Beal possess the ideal body type for a perimeter corner in today's NFL. The other three players who were eligible - Mississippi State S Brandon Bryant, Grand Valley State RB Marty Carter and Oregon State LB Bright Ugwoegbu - went undrafted and were rendered free agents and immediately able to sign with any interested National Football League team.

The safety confirmed he is signing with the Jets after NFL Network reporter Tom Pelissero tweeted that such a move was expected.

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

Rangers: Lassana Coulibaly is Steven Gerrard's latest signing
Mali worldwide Coulibaly, who has been capped 10 times, admits the lure of playing for Gerrard was too good to turn down. Rangers have completed the season-long loan signing of Mali worldwide Lassana Coulibaly from French side Angers.

He was clocked at 4.47 in the 40-yard dash at his Pro Day. Alexander plays with outstanding body control throughout his coverage, staying close to his receiver and swallowing up cushion as receivers work vertically.

Any team that's evaluating Beal has to ask themselves and perhaps bring it up to him that if he's unable or unwilling to take on MAC running backs, how is that situation going to improve against someone like Le'Veon Bell or Todd Gurley.

Alexander has that potential as well but is a very different style of prospect.

In most years, it's a rare occurrence to see a player taken in the Supplemental Draft. Alexander was considered one of the top cornerback prospects for the 2019 NFL Draft by Optimum Scouting.

According to NFL Network's Bucky Brooks, Alexander "smothers receivers at the line of scrimmage with his aggressive shadow technique, while also displaying good instincts and ball skills".

Beal, 21, declared for the draft this spring because his academic eligibility was up in the air. Each group has its own lottery drawing to determine the order, which is decided shortly before the supplemental draft starts. Donte Deayon, a slot corner who appeared in four games in 2018, also returns. He gives NY a strong third option behind Janoris Jenkins and Eli Apple. Alexander is the first player the Redskins have taken in the supplemental draft since 2009, when they added Kentucky defensive end Jeremy Jarmon. Kevin Johnson had his fifth-year option picked up but, he's been hurt frequently and plays too inconsistently.
