Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Supplemental Draft may provide answers at cornerback

The NFL held its annual Supplemental Draft on Wednesday.

On Wednesday afternoon, the National Football League will hold their annual Supplemental Draft. This year is different; there's three. He entered the supplemental draft after being ruled academically ineligible for what would have been his senior season.

At least two national experts don't expect the Lions to participate in the draft.

Sam Beal became the first player taken in the NFL Supplemental Draft for three years as the New York Giants selected him in the third round. The other one who had a chance to be drafted was Mississippi State defensive back Brandon Bryant. In OTAS and minicamp, Carrie got the most reps with the first-team defense.

If the Buccaneers or any team selects a player in this year's Supplemental Draft, it will happen quietly.

Beal is the highest player selected in the NFL's supplemental draft since the Browns used a second-round pick on Josh Gordon in 2012. However, the team isn't likely to pass up talented players if they are available, so there is a chance Minnesota did attempt to acquire one of these players. In 1988, Minnesota used a fifth-round draft pick to acquire SC wide receiver Ryan Bethea and haven't utilized the system to add another player since. Here's a look at the five players - in alphabetical order - and what they could bring to their future pro teams.

In college: After redshirting in 2014, Bryant had his best year as a college player in 2015, recording 63 tackles and three interceptions along with 1.5 sacks and a defensive touchdown.

A third-round pick is a high price to pay for Beal, so the Giants nearly certainly envision he'll assume a meaningful role in 2018. The Browns had the fourth pick in each round behind the Raiders, Jets, and Giants.

Alexander (6-2, 195) was considered a candidate for San Francisco because of his rare size and length for the position.

- Scouting report: A two-year starter at Western Michigan, Beal possess the ideal body type for a perimeter corner in today's NFL.

Beal's experience in both tight man and off man are valuable to teams. If a team, especially a contender, spends a second round pick on him, I won't be mad.

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".

Alexander is the third Virginia Tech player the Redskins have drafted this offseason. That turn of events angered several other teams and directly led to a change in the way the Supplemental Draft is conducted. They should certainly consider it and potentially bid a late-rounder for a guy like Beal - even though it won't be enough to get him - but anything more than a fifth-round pick should be out of the question.

There have been eight players who entered the league as first-round picks in the Supplemental Draft, a lot of them quarterbacks and most during the 1980s. That's seven corners, not including undrafted free agents.
