Things could be different this year, with three players projected as potential picks. In 2002, the Texans selected OG Milford Brown from Florida State in the 6th round.
In addition to Gordon, other notable players selected in the supplemental draft include quarterback Bernie Kosar (1985), wide receivers Cris Carter (1987) and Terrelle Pryor (2011) and running back Bobby Humphrey (1989), who was selected by Denver.
Players who want to enter the Supplemental Draft must file a petition to the league and have to still be at least 3 years removed from high school.
The Colts have not taken anyone from the supplemental draft int he last few years. He had only 23 receptions in college and isn't expected to contribute much as a receiver in the NFL.
The supplemental draft is basically a blind auction staged within pods of teams grouped by records. There is simply nothing bad that jumps out at you about him.
In the case of Beal, he has been declared academically ineligible for the 2018 season.
The only other team to use a supplemental pick this year was Washington, which selected Virginia Tech CB Adonis Alexander with a sixth-rounder. He quickly developed and turned into a standout player for the Broncos.
We are now just 60 days away from the Green Bay Packers' regular season opener, and just 16 days away from the start of training camp.

Houston's Altuve tops voting for Baseball All-Star Game
The Legends will also have Seuly Matias participating in the highly regarded Futures Game during the All-Star festivities. The second baseman also stole 39 bases for Lexington and was a South Atlantic League mid-season and postseason All-Star.
Beal also has good size (6-1, 178) and has the speed and athleticism new defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus craves. He's a better athlete than football player right now, but he gets a Round 6/7 grade from me and I think a team will pull the trigger on him.
So, how does the supplemental draft work?
Why should the Houston Texans target him?Kareem Jackson is moving to safety full time. The team added Aaron Colvin in free agency but, he can't do it all himself.
One of the big differences is the draft order. The Texans are in the first tier since they only won four games in 2017. The more likely scenario would be to trade one of them and the player that stands out in that situation is E.J. Gaines. In his sophomore campaign, Beal had a good market share in that area.
For starters, the Rams are already without their 2019 second-round pick after trading it to the Chiefs for Marcus Peters. The Browns had the fourth pick in each round behind the Raiders, Jets, and Giants. When the Buccaneers took Sileo in 1987 they used a third-round pick, which left them without that same pick in the spring of 1988.
Let's get started. Here's a roundup of the latest articles from around the internet.
Beal's experience in both tight man and off man are valuable to teams.
