Washington Redskins select Adonis Alexander in supplemental draft

Adonis Alexander will join the Redskins’ defensive backfield

A summer version of rookie acquisition presents itself Wednesday in the form of the supplement draft, held annually for prospects who did not enter the regular draft in April but have since submitted their names and plan to play this season.

Players may be granted eligibility into the supplemental draft for various reasons, though the most common are for academic ineligibility or dismissal from their college team for the upcoming season.

Bryant was one of three eligible prospects to not be selected in the supplemental draft.

Beal is expected to be a third-round pick in the draft but, the Texans should take the risk and bid a second. It's not televised and the order is determined more like the NBA Draft than the normal NFL Draft.

Bryant reportedly signed with the Jets, per Yahoo Sports.

Ramos then hit Djokovic with a time violation warning for taking too long to serve in the seventh game of the fourth set. Djokovic hasn't made a Grand Slam semifinal since the 2016 US Open (when he lost in the finals).


Teams then can make anonymous bids on players based on how high a draft pick they're willing to give up. This year, multiple players could be selected. Since 2013, only one player has been chosen (OL-Isaiah Battle in Round 5 by the Rams).

It's very likely we will see three defensive backs from this class selected.

Western Michigan University defensive back Sam Beal was chosen with a third-round selection by the New York Giants while the Washington Redskins nabbed Virginia Tech cornerback Adonis Alexander by using a 6th round pick. Kansas City might take Beal in the second round or hope Alexander falls to the fourth.

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. He did not attend spring practices before his ineligibility was announced and has received mixed reviews from those informed about the program.

In a year or two, perhaps the Giants will look back on the gamble they took Wednesday and nod in approval.

Beal also demonstrates pretty good ball skills and timing.

The Hokies also suspended Alexander in 2016 following an arrest for misdemeanor marijuana possession.

If the Colts believe that roster building is indeed something that happens 12 months a year, Chris Ballard might make a move in the usual quiet month of July. That determines who picks first through 10th.

Alexander (6-2, 195) was considered a candidate for San Francisco because of his rare size and length for the position. He has played heavier than that measured weight, so that is not much of a concern. He's a fantastic athlete, as shown by his Pro Day testing, and with added time for preparation might have been even more impressive. The second group has the teams with more than six wins that didn't make the playoffs.

Is this Sam Beal guy any good?

During his three-year college career, Alexander tallied seven interceptions and 17 passes defended, 91 solo tackles, and one sack. He does not have great bulk; he weighed in at 190 pounds at his Pro Day after dropping from 190 pounds for better testing.

Croatia Stuns England in Extra Time to Advance to World Cup Final
Only Uruguay - who lifted the inaugural title in 1930, and again in 1950 - has a smaller population among all World Cup finalists. Mario Mandzukic became Croatia's hero when he put Croatia in front with 11 minutes to go after a great through ball from Pivaric.


The Player: Bryant is known for being a physically gifted, explosive player.
