Gil Brandt: Sam Beal could be a third-round supplemental pick

Since Terrelle Pryor and Josh Gordon went in round three and round two, respectively, in the 2011 and 2012 supplemental drafts, respectively, only one player has been selected in the annual July selection process. This year, at least one of the players could go as high as Pryor or Gordon did.

Gil Brandt of NFL.com believes that Western Michigan cornerback Sam Beal may be taken in round three, and that he possibly would have been a second-round pick in the 2018 draft proper.

Any team that selects a player with a pick in the supplemental draft surrenders its pick in the same round in the following year’s regular draft.

Brandt pegs the Browns and Bills as teams that may take a flyer on Beal, who considered leaving school for the April draft and who was thereafter declared academically ineligible for the coming football season.

  1. Like to see the Pats take him with a second. it’s basically a third to most teams.

  2. Beal is small, any team with good scouts and a good front office(that excludes the Raiders), will not give up a 3rd for him

    He is worth taking a chance on with a 4th rounder, and Adonis Alexander probably garnering a 5th round selection

  3. Does anyone ever listen to Gil Brandt on Sirius NFL? Maybe he used to know the game but now he is barely coherent in his ramblings.

  4. Does anyone ever listen to Gil Brandt on Sirius NFL? Maybe he used to know the game but now he is barely coherent in his ramblings.

    Brandt has a lot in common with the poster as no one listens to the rantings of a negative troll. The word on Beal is he has has Roberto Durand hands….made of Stone.

  5. If there’s a supplemental draft choice available I’d always pick Porter – yes, strong with a good head, it’s a really nice beer to finish with. But either way, don’t make the mistake of going lighter than your earlier draft choices because you’ll barely taste it.

    This is Rick Spielman with the MN Vikings. You’ve obviously put in the time and have a great eye for evaluating prospects. Dynamite insight. Call me, let’s get you a contract.

    Awwwww…….someone is butt-hurt. Can you even remember the last time the Steelers beat Brady and the Pats? They could win the next 8 games straight and still be down in the head-to-head series. Chin up man, it looks like they can’t beat the Jaguars any more either..

    Sorry, but I was not aware this guy was still predicting football, or that he was still alive.
    ———————————

    Brandt had a heck of a career and was as keen an evaluator of talent as there was in his day but that day has long since passed. He’s been a (very) ‘senior’ contributor at nfl.com or some time now, IIRC he’s got to be somewhere between 85 and deceased by now.

  10. The general consensus before his pro-day was a 3rd or 4th. This makes sense, I dont see why people would feel the need to go off on Brandt. I know very little and I said a 3rd a month ago. Now the question is, how high do you see your team drafting next year?

  11. Guy must be dumb as a bag of hammers to be ineligible based on his academics. Most college athletes don’t challenge themselves with difficult classes. First thing that needs to be known is can he read and write.

    Chiefs need CB depth; 4th rounder should do it.

    —-
    The Chiefs don’t have a 2019 4th round pick, as it was traded to the Bills for Reggie Ragland.

  13. If I understand this supplemental draft correctly, the team loses its corresponding draft choice next year if they draft in the supplemental draft this year.

    If, for example, the Patriots have no second round pick in 2019(traded to Bears), could they pick a player in the second round of the supplemental draft this year? It would be an awesome way to game the system by a team in that situation.

    I could say the same thing about most Pats fans….

    @nhpats

    Ya let’s get Brandt off Sirius and replace him with the Deflator .

    ———–

    If the deflator can form a compete sentence it would be an upgrade

  16. Awwwww…….someone is butt-hurt. Can you even remember the last time the Steelers beat Brady and the Pats? They could win the next 8 games straight and still be down in the head-to-head series. Chin up man, it looks like they can’t beat the Jaguars any more either..

    I can remember and it was awhile ago. Can you remember when the Pats weren’t known as a team that famous for Cheating with fans that are annoying little trolls? Edelman getting busted another example…..

    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    And what an excellent trade that is turning out to be.
    More like the Chiefs walked into the Bills HQ, beat up the GM,took what they wanted, and left a 4th round note on the table

  18. Neal is over 6 foot he was allegedly measured at his
    proday at 6’ 07 ….so that is not small by corners
    in today’s market. In fact some souting experts were calling him
    a Seattle Seahawk type DB as far as size.
    His tackling is supposedly suspect but it appears he
    can run well.

  19. The Supplemental draft is the one the Browns have never picked a bust in. All their picks in that one have been pro bowlers. They know which screw ups have talent.
