Will the chiefs draft a player in the supplemental draft?

https://arrowheadaddict.com/2018/06/...nis-alexander/

Adonis Alexander has been declared academically ineligible for the 2018 college season. Could the Chiefs be looking to add him in the supplemental draft?

Life tends to act in funny ways, sometimes it will knock you down into the dirt and laugh at you. Other times it will give you a random stroke of luck that you desperately needed.

The Kansas City Chiefs may have had the latter situation fall right into their laps. Adonis Alexander was recently declared academically ineligible for the upcoming 2018 college season.

Alexander, a corner that has been attending Virginia Tech for the past three years released this statement following the news:

There may be some of you wondering about what in the world the NFLís Supplemental Draft is. No one would blame you for this. The supplemental draft has primarily been treated similarly to that family member you never want to introduce to anyone. That is for good reason. The NFL supplemental draft was implemented in 1977. Since then there have only been 43 players selected over the 41 years it has been around. The supplemental draft was made for players that had become ineligible for the college season after the more traditional NFL draft had been held.

The supplemental draft is much more of a bidding war than anything else. There is still a draft order, but teams first enter in names of players that they interest them. After that, they then apply a pick to that player, if two teams apply a pick from the same round then whoever holds the higher pick wins.

It is a bit of an odd process, but one that has paid off for teams in the past. There was a special supplemental draft held in 1984 for college players that had already signed with other leagues. That draft produced some of the best football players ever to play. They were Steve Young, Gary Zimmerman, and Reggie White.

This draft comes with a major catch though. If a team decides to choose a player in the supplemental draft, they will lose that corresponding pick the next season. For example, if Kansas City were to choose Alexander in the third-round of the draft they would lose their third-round pick in the 2019 draft. This has led to the majority of players being chosen in the later rounds of the draft. Josh Gordon is the most recent high round pick, having been chosen in the second round of the 2012 draft by the Clevland Browns.

This leaves the Chiefs in a unique position. Kansas City is very thin at the cornerback position, so having a talented corner possibly drop into their laps could be that stroke of luck needed to help solidify the position. Especially when the outlook for the position going past 2018 is bleak at the moment. The real question is whether Alexander is even worth drafting. I decided to look at the few games on draftbreakdown to see if there was any real reason to be excited about him.

First, letís start off with the good things that Alexander showed in his game film:

This was the very first thing that stood out to me about Alexander. He has no fear when it comes to getting physical, something that some fans have been critical about with recent Chiefs corners.

What do you college watchers/draftniks think of this kid?

3 years and already had 3 suspensions?
Academically ineligible for his 4th season?

I wouldn't bid any higher than a 6th.

If they do draft a guy, CP will rail on about how great he is gonna be because.....

This is the supplemental draft. It's the dumbass draft essentially. I'd hold onto my picks for next year.

Sam Beal--YES!! I'd throw in a 2nd/3rd if the team scouts agree with the projections.

Adonis Alexander--I'd throw a 6th? His 40 time is atrocious and I wouldn't doubt that he's faster than that. His off the field issues scare me but for a throwaway pick, why not?

Chiefs don't have a 4th round pick in 2019 (Ragland).

I like the sound of this: "At 6-1 and 190 pounds, Beal has the ideal frame to play cornerback at the next level. He finished the 2017 season with two interceptions, 10 pass deflections, 22 total tackles and a forced fumble in the span of 10 games. A track and field All-American in high school, he also possesses rare speed for someone his size. His ability to excel in press-man coverage will also impress NFL teams."

The idea is to win before Mahomes' salary explodes. This will be a very interesting supplemental draft.

Western Michigan CB Sam Beal ran the 40-yard dash in 4.40 seconds and 4.51 seconds during his pro day-style workout on Thursday.

The vast discrepancies between those two times is due to the wind, with the slower time recorded running into the breeze. In addition to those jaunts through the 40-yard dash, the 6-foot, 178-pound Beal notched a 37-inch vertical jump. He showed exactly what he needed to show in this setting. Those 40-yard times may well put him in play for a second-round selection in the supplemental draft, though safe money would probably be on Round 3. The supplemental draft will be held on July 11. Beal is looking to become the first player drafted in the process since 2015.

Also, interesting tidbit is the last player taken in the supplemental draft was Isiah Battle...which spent some time in KC last year.

2018 NFL supplemental draft: Sam Beal holds pro day on Thursday



Western Michigan cornerback Sam Beal is holding his own pro day today in advance of the upcoming NFL Supplemental Draft on July 11.

Sam Beal likely sat and watched (or wasn’t even around) on March 23, 2018. That was the day that every Western Michigan player with hopes of playing professional football in 2018 worked out, ran through various drills and interviewed with numerous teams. It was all in the name of hearing their name called in the upcoming 2018 NFL Draft.

Things have changed since that day for Beal, a talented cornerback for the Broncos (no, not those Broncos). Now that he’s been declared academically ineligible for next year at WMU, he’s turning his attention to the pros thanks to a special secondary draft held in July by the NFL for just such occasions.

The 2018 Supplemental Draft is coming on July 11 and for the first time in a few years, numerous teams will likely be paying close attention to the results. There have been entire years without a single player eligible, while most years there is a middling prospect or two. This year, however, three young defensive backs are hoping for some draft positioning and all have reason to hope.

Beal is perhaps the most favorable prospect overall. At 6’1, he’s got the height/length although he’s a bit slight at 185 pounds (he’d be the lightest Chiefs DB, tied with Makinton Dorleant). Last year as a junior, Beal had 22 total tackles, 2 interceptions and 1 forced fumble.

The scouting reports are very, very solid with Beal. Matt Miller of Bleacher Report has him as a first round pick at No. 22 overall in his admittedly way too early mock draft for 2019. Terez Paylor also heard lots of great things about him for his own scouting column.

It will be interesting to see if the Chiefs are present for Beal’s pro day because they were also around to check out Adonis Alexander at his recent pro day at Virginia Tech.

The Chiefs have some potential concerns with both overall talent and depth for this year along with definite concerns about all things long-term. David Amerson is here and gone on a one-year deal. Steven Nelson will be a free agent in 2019. That leaves Kendall Fuller as the lone starting option for next season, unless someone can really make a jump among the ranks of Keith Reaser, Arrion Springs, Tremon Smith or Will Redmond. It takes a lot of optimism to believe in any of those for 2018 at least, although hope remains high for Smith in particular as he adjusts from a small school.

Adding Beal would bring in another experienced playmaker who might not shine in 2018 necessarily but provides some competition and a high ceiling moving forward next to Fuller. But it all starts at the pro day, so we’ll see whether or not the Chiefs are even interested.

It depends on why they are in this situation. If the scouts think Beal is worth a 2nd round pick then go for it. We most likely will have to spend a high pick on a CB next year anyway.

Sometimes taking risks works out. Did with Houston, didn't in the end with Peters.

I guess it depends on how you look at it but this is either good symmetry or not learning from a mistake to spend the Peters pick on another risky CB. I'd say if they believe he will work out then go for it. Nobody knows the risks and signs of a bad attitude CB more than our current staff.
