It's not televised and the order is determined more like the NBA Draft than the normal NFL Draft. He had every National Football League team, including multiple decision-makers, attend his Pro Day. A physical defensive back with the versatility to play multiple positions, Alexander was considered one of the top secondary prospects heading into the 2019 season before being dismissed from the Hokies program for academic reasons. Kansas City might take Beal in the second round or hope Alexander falls to the fourth.
Though he'll be behind Jamal Adams, Marcus Maye and J.J. Wilcox on the depth chart, Bryant will absolutely help contribute on special teams and as the third safety when called upon. Two players were taken, which hasn't happened since 2010.
Most teams don't use very high picks on players due to the nature of these players' availability typically coming from some type of off-field issue. He needs technique work. He does a great job of playing inside leverage on receivers trying go deep on him and making it hard to make a play. He plays with outstanding ball skills and strength as a tackler. Moving from a 3-4 to a 4-3 defense this offseason, new coach Steve Wilks will look to stop teams from excelling through the air by playing a similar defense to the one he ran for the Carolina Panthers. If a player is not selected in the first round, the process repeats in the second round, and so on.
Washington acquired Virginia Tech cornerback Adonis Alexander with a sixth-round bid.
Unless there's a significant injury, someone isn't going to make the team and it very well could be one of the players the Browns just signed in free agency.

It comes four months after ex-KGB agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned with novichok in nearby Salisbury . Detectives are working to identify the source of the contamination, police said, but a source has not yet been established.
Bryant reportedly signed with the Jets, per Yahoo Sports. It's not, but there's no way we could have projected him as a guy who could play corner and he wasn't heavily recruited because of questions about his quickness.
The Browns (0-16) and Giants (2-14) are the only teams with a better chance of holding the first overall pick than the Colts. Reading into how much passing game coordinator Kris Richard prefers length and physicality at cornerback (two things present in Alexander's game) can not overshadow the overall strength of Beal's tape though. He was arrested and charged with a DUI in January 2017.
Beal, who was taken with the second pick in the third round Wednesday, is the highest-drafted player in the supplemental draft since wide receiver Josh Gordon went in the second round in 2012. He had only 23 receptions in college and isn't expected to contribute much as a receiver in the NFL.
Our friends over at NFLMocks.com have a great piece up on the supplemental draft and the prospects involved. He also had poor SAT scores that limited his Division I opportunities.
