Colts could be bidders in supplemental draft

Adonis Alexander will join the Redskins’ defensive backfield

Bryant found himself in the supplemental draft after he was declared academically ineligible for his senior season at Mississippi State. This year, multiple players could be selected. Sam Beal of Western Michigan and Adonis Alexander of Virginia Tech, both high-upside cornerbacks, are expected to be claimed within the first four rounds of the Supplemental Draft, likely making them the highest players selected since the Browns took Josh Gordon in 2012 with a second-round pick.

Beal is the first player taken in a supplemental draft since 2015. They have a bidding system based on the grade of draft pick they are willing to give up in next year's draft in order to take a player in the supplemental draft. They still have all their other remaining picks in next year's draft, except for in Round 7, trading their own original pick and acquiring the Rams' choice. He was projected to be a top 100 pick in this past year's draft. The Dallas Cowboys have done it five times and the San Diego Chargers three but no other team has made more than two Supplemental Draft picks. With three defensive backs potentially getting selected in Wednesday's draft, teams will have the chance to add a legitimate Day 1 starter in the middle of July - something that nearly never happens. If Beal goes to the right team, he could start this year. Lombardi Ave's Andrew Cox looks at a few players that could interest Gutekunst. 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.

The NFL Supplemental Draft usually comes and goes with little fanfare or excitement.

London awaits Trump's visit, braces for protests
Downing Street insisted Mrs May welcomed Mr Trump's decision to "engage" with the Russian leader in the Finnish capital on Monday. Some British citizens are even more distressed about Trump than they are about the U.K.'s own feverish political turmoil.

Alexander is the third Virginia Tech player the Redskins have drafted this offseason. The second group has the teams with more than six wins that didn't make the playoffs. Teams can place bids on players they like. The other three players who were eligible - Mississippi State S Brandon Bryant, Grand Valley State RB Marty Carter and Oregon State LB Bright Ugwoegbu - went undrafted and were rendered free agents and immediately able to sign with any interested National Football League team. They all showed flashes of pro potential.

The Colts will be part of the first group along with the Cleveland Browns (0-16), New York Giants (3-13), Houston Texans (4-12), New York Jets (5-11), Denver Broncos (5-11), Chicago Bears (5-11), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (5-11), San Francisco 49ers (6-10), Miami Dolphins (6-10) and Oakland Raiders (6-10). Add in the fact the coaching staff is anything but certain beyond 2018 and using a 2019 draft asset on a player for 2018, which may then not fit a new coaching staff doesn't seem prudent.
