Don't look for Lions to take a gamble in National Football League supplemental draft

He entered the supplemental draft after being ruled academically ineligible for what would have been his senior season. Quarterback Bernie Kosar was selected in the 1985 supplemental draft and wide receiver Josh Gordon in 2012.

The Giants opted against selecting a defensive back in the 2018 draft, while free-agent signings William Gay and Teddy Williams will likely play reserve roles behind Eli Apple and Janoris Jenkins.

The NFL will conduct their annual supplemental draft on Wednesday, July 11 and according to analyst Dane Brugler, Cleveland Browns general manager John Dorsey may draft Western Michigan cornerback Sam Beal. That team then loses a selection in the same round in the upcoming 2019 NFL Draft. The issue that stands out is his weight at just 178 pounds, though the Browns just went down that road with Denzel Ward with the fourth overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft. Nonetheless, both players are viewed as guys that teams could give up a top-three round pick in the Supplemental Draft.

Trump readies tariffs on another $US200m of Chinese goods
China's yuan meanwhile dropped 0.45 per cent against the dollar to move back towards an 11-month low plumbed last week. Beijing's commitment to its ongoing deleveraging campaign means that tight credit conditions will continue, Yan said.

This year's draft will begin at 1 p.m. ET. He indicated that the Giants were able to conduct a "very thorough conversation" with the team's scouts who had seen Beal.

It marked the first time two players were selected in the supplemental draft since 2010. If Beal goes to the right team, he could start this year. He often plays high, will win a lot of matchups on pure athletic superiority rather than playing correctly and there's a lot that will require fixing. However, Beal is considered a true developmental player who would not be expected to play this year.

Alexander is the third Virginia Tech player the Redskins have drafted this offseason.

Nadal edges del Potro in tight Wimbledon match
It was Juan Martin del Potro who slumped to his knees and lay flat on the grass after the last point. As Nadal looks ahead to the semi-finals, Del Potro heads for his next tournament.

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.

This is why the supplemental draft is extremely riveting when talented prospects are involved. Robinson never played in the NFL.

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.

World shocked by Federer's loss to Anderson
Kevin Anderson , who played at the University of IL , knocked defending champion Roger Federer out of Wimbledon Wednesday. He won only 3 of 12 break points on Anderson's serve in the match. "I just feel sorry for him and congrats to Kevin".

Grand Valley State running back Martayveus Carter and Oregon State linebacker Bright Ugwoegbu are the other draft-eligible players. So, there's definitely a connection between the player and team. Alexander gets a round 3/4 grade from me because of his upside, but a 40-yard dash near the 4.60 range hurts. The most decorated player to come out of the Supplemental Draft, however, is probably Cris Carter, the former Ohio State receiver who started out with the Eagles but became a star in Minnesota.
