Two players came off the board during the 2018 National Football League supplemental draft Wednesday.

Below is a list of this year's eligible Supplemental Draft prospects, complete with a brief scouting report, athletic testing results, character and background information, which teams have interest in them and which teams might end up signing them this season.

Although no players have been selected in the supplemental draft since 2015, when the then-St. The Giants took former Western Michigan cornerback Sam Beal in Round 3 before Washington tapped Virginia Tech corner Adonis Alexander in the sixth round.

Quick supplemental draft primer: Teams are placed into one of three groups (six wins or fewer, non-playoff teams, playoff teams), the order therein then determined by lottery. The. If they had drafted him in the third round, they would have lost a third-round pick in next spring's NFL Draft. Faced with some academic issues that might have prevented him from regaining eligibility for his senior season, Beal was compelled to enter the supplemental draft this summer.

Supplemental draft picks might be considered the equivalent of a double down in Blackjack. Garafolo reported that Alexander has passed drug tests during the past eight months. Journeyman Tyvis Powell received first-team reps during the offseason program while 2014 first-round pick Jimmie Ward sat with a minor ankle injury.

All 32 teams were represented at Beal's pro day, per Jeff Risdon of RealGM.

Washington was in on Alexander, attending his pro day, and had a need at corner.

A three-year starter for the Bulldogs at safety, Bryant primarily lined up to the wide side of the formation as a junior with reps deep and over the slot.

The only time the Lions were awarded a player in the supplemental draft was in 1982, when they nabbed Kevin Robinson, a cornerback out of North Carolina A&T. In his sophomore campaign, Beal had a good market share in that area. The fact he could doesn't mean he should as he's far closer to a third or fourth round prospect, but desperation and the lack of options might make what is normally a pretty conservative process have teams be more aggressive with Beal.

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

Bryant's interviews with the Colts and the Baltimore Ravens were his favorite, according to Chase Goodbread of NFL.com. Alexander plays physical, but if he doesn't overcome the speed issues, he'll be the next in a growing line of lanky CBs who can't make it in the NFL. He was suspended for three games during his college career. Ogwoegbu was suspended indefinitely by Oregon State during the spring due to undisclosed reasons. The 6-foot-1 cornerback ran the 40-yard dash in the 4.5 range and had a 37-inch vertical leap. He has experience playing in several spots, including off the edge and in the nickel, so it gives coaches something to work with when projecting what he'll do in the NFL.

A trade could nip that situation in the bud, make the situation right in terms of putting him on a team to start as well as creating the roster space to carry Beal.
