5 teams that should target Adonis Alexander in the supplemental draft

071118-adonis-alexander-virginia-tech

The supplemental draft is typically for players who have had troubled pasts. They emphasized acquiring picks for the NFL Draft, so it would be shocking to see them part with one of those picks to take a player in the supplemental draft. To determine that, teams are divided up into three groups: Teams that won fewer than five games, teams that won more than five games but missed the playoffs and then playoff teams.

In a supplemental draft profile, NFL.com analyst Bucky Brooks touted Alexander's ability to "smother receivers at the line of scrimmage" and "routinely pin receivers to the sideline with the ball in the air to minimize the target area for the quarterback on downfield throws". Two players were taken, which hasn't happened since 2010.

However, Sam Beal has no negative reports about him coming into the supplemental draft. If no other team bids a second-round pick, that team gets the player. They were absolutely the best on the board when they were picked. Still, a prospect worthy of a mid-round selection in Wednesday's draft.

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.

Indianapolis is one of four teams reported to have met with Alexandria. He also has the least character concerns of the three defensive backs. The third group has all the teams that did make the playoffs.

The order of the teams drafting in the Supplemental Draft is different from April's Draft. The downside is the cost - teams that use a pick in the Supplemental Draft forfeit their pick in the matching round in next year's regular draft. When the Buccaneers took Sileo in 1987 they used a third-round pick, which left them without that same pick in the spring of 1988. That was a shame because it would have been the second selection of that round, number 57 overall. The winning bidder agrees to give up the round selection in the following year's National Football League draft.

It's possible a team views him as a boundary corner that is a package player for obvious passing situations, but given the price tag, that seems pretty hefty for a player that would be limited to a package player. If a player is not selected in the first round, the process repeats in the second round, and so on. He told NFL.com that he has been working on his maturity and growing up over the a year ago. He made a decision to return to school, but at the start of spring practice he was suspended indefinitely, and later declared for the Supplemental Draft. Virginia Tech confirmed in June he was no longer a member of the team after Alexander announced through his agent he was academically ineligible for the 2018 season.

The Texans, however, are primed to make a splash in the supplemental draft.
