Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Supplemental Draft may provide answers at cornerback

But corner is a definite need for this team heading into 2019, after they didn't select a corner with any of their 2018 draft picks.

Meanwhile, Irwin-Hill was mostly on the team to provide competition for Tress Way.

The Denver Broncos will be among the many teams active and interested in the 2018 supplemental draft. If they were looking to take a developmental player, losing a third-round selection would make sense.

This is why the supplemental draft is extremely riveting when talented prospects are involved. For the first time since Isaiah Battle in 2015, a selection was made during the event.

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.

One or two teams could pad those totals this year, however, perhaps even the Buccaneers. The idea that the Chiefs would rely on both to fill key role slots, especially when they rely so heavily on sub packages in which those defensive backs are used often, makes zero sense.

Eligible for this year's draft are Virginia Tech cornerback Adonis Alexander, Western Michigan cornerback Sam Beal, Mississippi State safety Brandon Bryant, Grand Valley State running back Martayveus Carter and Oregon State linebacker Bright Ugwoegbu. A team that drafts him is banking on what he could be down the road.

The order of the teams drafting in the Supplemental Draft is different from April's Draft.

The draft itself will start at 1 p.m. ET on Wednesday and won't last very long.

Those first 10 teams all submit blind bids if they wish to select any of the players in the current round. 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. So, there's definitely a connection between the player and team. It was in 1987 when they selected the only Hall of Fame player ever to be chosen in the Supplemental Draft in wide receiver Cris Carter.

For instance, if the Chiefs put in a third-round bid for Beal, and Beal is awarded to the Chiefs, they would lose a third-round selection in 2019. If they had to use a second round pick to claim Beal in the supplemental draft, they would still have a pick in every early round to work with next spring.

The highest-profile supplemental pick of recent vintage would be Josh Gordon, the Baylor receiver taken by Cleveland with a second-round pick in 2012.

Through three seasons in Kalamazoo, Beal amassed 92 tackles, 19 passes defended, two interceptions, and one forced fumble. Playing with a noticeable edge on tape and mastering a hard technique out of Western Michigan, Beal is a name every football fan should hope to be hearing about with their favorite team soon.

Beal (6-1, 196) was ruled academically ineligible for 2018, but Western Michigan coaches and school officials loved him, sources told cleveland.com.
