Due to his excellent measurables, most thought he'd absolutely be selected. In fact, there could be as three players selected this season.
The Bucs' Supplemental Draft drought is not particularly unusual; the teams in their own division have been just as quiet, for instance.
This week, five NFL hopefuls get a shot at joining league rosters via the annual supplemental draft.
Alexander becomes the Redskins' first supplemental pick since they used a third-round choice on defensive lineman Jeremy Jarmon in 2009.
- What really matters: Ugwoegbu will turn 23 in late September, meaning he would be older than most rookies yet still raw as a defender. Teams don't have to submit bids. When a player is selected in the supplemental draft, the team that selects him loses that pick in the following year's regular draft.
At least two national experts don't expect the Lions to participate in the draft.
The Western Michigan prospect does not come with off-field concerns like other players that have come through the Supplemental Draft.
Few players qualify for the supplemental draft. That might not be the only reason they made the move, but it's an obvious contrast to the players they added, which makes adding Beal dubious.

According to Draft Wire's Cole Thompson, the Cardinals should draft him. Robinson never played in the NFL. Considering the depth at the position, you would think not, but stay tuned. Instead, I'll slot him to the Los Angeles Rams, who are thin behind Lamarcus Joyner and John Johnson. But don't expect a new Colt to be announced tomorrow. At his Pro Day, he recorded a 4.47 40-yard dash, a 37-inch vertical and a 10'6 broad jump, all of which would have put him in the upper echelon of cornerbacks at the 2018 NFL Combine. 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.
