The NFL’s Supplemental Draft is right around the corner, and the Colts may have their eye on one of the available players.
The Supplemental Draft is often a forgotten event on the NFL calendar, but there are multiple players who have a chance to be picked this year according to Albert Breer.
Every NFL team has an opportunity to participate in the Supplemental Draft, which usually contains a group of players that had some sort of off-the-field issues coming out of college.
The Supplemental Draft is separated into rounds like the NFL Draft held in the spring.
If a team decides to use a fourth round pick in the Supplemental Draft, for example, they would sacrifice their fourth round pick in next year’s NFL Draft.

The top prospects in the 2018 Supplemental Draft, which will be held on July 11th, are Western Michigan cornerback Sam Beal, Virginia Tech cornerback Adonis Alexander, and Mississippi State safety Brandon Bryant.
According to Breer, Beal and Alexander had second or third round talent, but each of them have some character concerns.
The Colts could definitely use a young talented cornerback to add to their roster, and the Supplemental Draft might be a good place to find one.
Taking a risk on one of the two cornerbacks in this year’s class with a late-round pick would be a worthwhile gamble for a team that doesn’t have many established corners on their depth chart.
There have only been three players taken in the last eight years of the Supplemental Draft, but this year’s class has some promising young talent.
