Chicago Bears should consider these Supplemental Draft prospects

Chicago Bears should consider these Supplemental Draft prospects

He also had solid balls skills as well and solid instincts. He plays long and especially against some of his MAC competition, was able to erase receivers from the play. Of those 45 players, eight have gone on to make the Pro Bowl during their National Football League careers.

The Texans, however, are primed to make a splash in the supplemental draft. He does not have major character red flags other than basic maturity and motivational question marks, both of which could be extinguished upon entering the NFL. He'll fit in well as an outside cornerback in a heavy man coverage scheme.

It is seen in the clip above this is also a player that struggles to break down and fill against the run.

Beal's technique is incredibly raw. Players in this position will sometimes choose to accelerate their path to the pros, rather than waiting a whole extra year to enter the regular draft. He allows too many short-yardage receptions and needs to win initially to prevent quick slants and potential double moves from working on him in the NFL. He's a bit light and can learn to play with more physicality and tackle better. Perhaps, but it's likely the same price another team would've paid. The Giants now have more talent in a secondary that underwhelmed last season and was plagued by discipline issues, including multiple suspensions under former head coach Ben McAdoo. The Browns traded away Jamar Taylor to the Arizona Cardinals for a late round pick and he didn't tackle. If the Chiefs end up with a low priority in the order, they might pull the trigger in Round 2. Sure, his net average of 39 wasn't very good comparatively, but part of that fell on the Redskins special teams unit and their penchant for giving up big plays. It can and has been done, but the team that takes Beal has to at least hope he can develop into a starter. However, Marty Hurney and Ron Rivera seem content with what they have. As it now stands, the Browns have Ward, Carrie, Gaines, Mitchell, Briean Boddy-Calhoun, Mike Jordan and Simeon Thomas. Florida State's Tarvarus McFadden signed as an undrafted free agent.

That's not an ideal situation for a team with three of its five starting offensive linemen hitting free agency next year. "They took the time to help, even when they're supposed to be on vacation, they were sitting there with me, making sure I'm all good". The Bucs grabbed him for a third-round pick. The Charlotte native picked off seven passes during his three-year career and is a long-armed defender who can get physical with wide receivers at the line of scrimmage.

It's not necessarily a bad thing that the Chiefs didn't reach for Beal with a second-round draft pick. Should there be more than one team that places a bid in the same round, then the team with the higher selection in that round gets the player's rights. They aren't desperate (for a change) and his style of play is counter to what they have been doing. I didn't really look ahead.
