Will the chiefs draft a player in the supplemental draft?

https://arrowheadaddict.com/2018/06/...nis-alexander/

Adonis Alexander has been declared academically ineligible for the 2018 college season. Could the Chiefs be looking to add him in the supplemental draft?

Life tends to act in funny ways, sometimes it will knock you down into the dirt and laugh at you. Other times it will give you a random stroke of luck that you desperately needed.

The Kansas City Chiefs may have had the latter situation fall right into their laps. Adonis Alexander was recently declared academically ineligible for the upcoming 2018 college season.

Alexander, a corner that has been attending Virginia Tech for the past three years released this statement following the news:

There may be some of you wondering about what in the world the NFLís Supplemental Draft is. No one would blame you for this. The supplemental draft has primarily been treated similarly to that family member you never want to introduce to anyone. That is for good reason. The NFL supplemental draft was implemented in 1977. Since then there have only been 43 players selected over the 41 years it has been around. The supplemental draft was made for players that had become ineligible for the college season after the more traditional NFL draft had been held.

The supplemental draft is much more of a bidding war than anything else. There is still a draft order, but teams first enter in names of players that they interest them. After that, they then apply a pick to that player, if two teams apply a pick from the same round then whoever holds the higher pick wins.

It is a bit of an odd process, but one that has paid off for teams in the past. There was a special supplemental draft held in 1984 for college players that had already signed with other leagues. That draft produced some of the best football players ever to play. They were Steve Young, Gary Zimmerman, and Reggie White.

This draft comes with a major catch though. If a team decides to choose a player in the supplemental draft, they will lose that corresponding pick the next season. For example, if Kansas City were to choose Alexander in the third-round of the draft they would lose their third-round pick in the 2019 draft. This has led to the majority of players being chosen in the later rounds of the draft. Josh Gordon is the most recent high round pick, having been chosen in the second round of the 2012 draft by the Clevland Browns.

This leaves the Chiefs in a unique position. Kansas City is very thin at the cornerback position, so having a talented corner possibly drop into their laps could be that stroke of luck needed to help solidify the position. Especially when the outlook for the position going past 2018 is bleak at the moment. The real question is whether Alexander is even worth drafting. I decided to look at the few games on draftbreakdown to see if there was any real reason to be excited about him.

First, letís start off with the good things that Alexander showed in his game film:

This was the very first thing that stood out to me about Alexander. He has no fear when it comes to getting physical, something that some fans have been critical about with recent Chiefs corners.

What do you college watchers/draftniks think of this kid?

Apparently Sam Beal from Western Michigan is entering as well.

I don't see why they wouldn't try, depending on if they sign off on any character concerns. If they determine one of these guys would have a 2nd-3rd round grade, and if they have an immediate need at corner (they do), why not add a corner now instead of waiting a year?

I would only throw a bid on him in the 6th round. He has some length both in height and reach. Good at disrupting the route at the line of scrimmage and can cover bigger receivers. But he does seem to come with baggage. While at VT he missed games for breaking team rules in 2016, 2017 and didn't make grades to be eligible for this year, thus the supplemental draft. His stats also fell off last year and some observers thought it looked like he was taking plays off.

I was trying to find a date for it, but only found an article saying that the date for it had not been set yet. But, I looked further and saw that last year, it was in mid July. Interesting tidbit, the last player selected in the supplemental draft was drafted in 2015 by the Rams, but later signed by the Chiefs. Isaah Battle

I wouldn't give up anything more than a 6th, no matter how thin we are at CB. Here's a thought, how dumb must this guy be if he's academically ineligible? If he can't pass 12 hours per semester of jock classes with the help of a tutor, what kind of student of the game will he be at a pro level?

CB Sam Beal (W. Michigan) interest anyone?

https://draftwire.usatoday.com/2018/...emental-draft/

Sounds awful tempting to me, much more so than the other 2 DBs entering the supplemental draft.

I'd throw a 3rd out there for this guy, given we have two 2nds but no 4th. just dont see a 5th getting it done here.
