Cleveland Browns: Adding another corner in the Supplemental Draft?

  • Western Michigan cornerback Sam Beal could be a player selected in the 2018 Supplemental Draft

Beal is an extremely fluid player, lining up with a low stance in press coverage most often at Western Michigan.

The NFL's top-100 for the 2017 season completed recently and two players from the red, white and blue found their names on the list.

Beal is expected to be a third-round pick in the draft but, the Texans should take the risk and bid a second. The draft is conducted via email after the order is determined using a weighted lottery system based on last year's standings. At least one team reportedly had a second-round grade on Beal. The Charlotte native picked off seven passes during his three-year career and is a long-armed defender who can get physical with wide receivers at the line of scrimmage. So, there's definitely a connection between the player and team.

The Redskins have had plenty of transition in the defensive backfield this offseason after trading Kendall Fuller - another former Virginia Tech player - to the Kansas City Chiefs as part of the deal that brought quarterback Alex Smith to Washington.

- What really matters: Beal was forced to leave Western Michigan due to academic ineligibility.

Wimbledon 2018 | Three to See on Day 9
Federer didn't seemed bothered by being away from Centre Court when he cruised through the first set in just 26 minutes. The eight-time champion and 20-time grand slam victor last played a Wimbledon match outside Centre Court in 2015.

The San Francisco 49ers decided against adding players in Wednesday's supplemental draft, allowing them to keep their selections in the traditional 2019 NFL Draft. Essentially, both teams are getting their picks a year early.

The Texans, however, are primed to make a splash in the supplemental draft. That turn of events angered several other teams and directly led to a change in the way the Supplemental Draft is conducted.

Kosar, Humphrey and Moore are among the supplemental picks that worked out well for their teams, as was Navy offensive lineman Mike Wahle to Green Bay in 1998. He's a better athlete than football player right now, but he gets a Round 6/7 grade from me and I think a team will pull the trigger on him. He could end up playing safety at the next level if his athleticism proves to be an issue. And given that he will be so far behind all the other rookies coming in this late stage in the process as well as the upgrade in talent, Beal would likely be taking a redshirt year for the Browns while being on the active roster.

Despite signing three free agent corners and drafting two more in April, there is talk that the Cleveland Browns might look to add their sixth new corner in the upcoming supplemental draft.

It was Beal's ability to lock down receivers that made him the first supplemental pick since the Rams selected running back Isaiah Battle in the fifth round of the 2015 draft. In fact, there could be as three players selected this season.
