The NFL Supplemental Draft in 2018 features its deepest crop of players in over a decade. Two prospects are expected to be selected (likely in the first few rounds), and three other eligible players had 2019 NFL Draft aspirations prior to their ineligibility for the 2018 college football season.
What really matters: Beal was forced to leave Western Michigan due to academic ineligibility. He had considered entering the 2018 NFL Draft and garnered interest. He does not have major character red flags other than basic maturity and motivational question marks, both of which could be extinguished upon entering the NFL. Beal was graded as a preseason third-round pick by Optimum Scouting, and he garnered similar grades from NFL scouting services and teams. He had every NFL team, including multiple decision-makers, attend his Pro Day. The Chiefs have interest in both Beal and Alexander, and they have two second-round picks and a need at cornerback. Kansas City might take Beal in the second round or hope Alexander falls to the fourth.
The police report, obtained by The Arizona Republic, also revealed more details of his arrest and the DUI stop as the report stated his eyes were bloodshot and his speech was slurred. Keim told officers that he had been bouncing around and was leaving a friend’s house, claiming to have had two beers while eating pizza an hour or two before he was stopped, according to the report.
Police first noticed Keim driving fast at 12:12 a.m. on Wednesday, but once he got to the Chandler police station he said that he had been drinking beer since 4 p.m. and had about two IPAs in the hour before driving home.
Arizona Republic also notes that Keim declined to perform several steps in a sobriety test due to a knee injury and would not agree to a breath test. Instead, officers took two vials of his blood to test for blood alcohol content. The results of his test were not completed as of Tuesday morning and could take three months to process, according to police.
