Mississippi State’s Brandon Bryant headed to NFL’s supplemental draft
And then there were three.
Already this month, Virginia Tech cornerback Adonis Alexander (HERE) and Western Michigan cornerback Sam Beal (HERE) have opted to enter the NFL’s supplemental draft, which is slated to be conducted at an undetermined date in July. It’s also being reported that yet another defensive back, Mississippi State safety Brandon Bryant, will likely file for entry into that draft.
Alexander and Beal are a part of the secondary draft’s pool of players because of academics; it’s being reported that Bryant’s inclusion is for similar reasons.
The past three seasons, Bryant started 26 of the 38 games in which he played. In 2015, he led all freshmen SEC defensive backs in tackles with 63 and interceptions with three. The 5-11, 200-pound native of Mississippi finished his Bulldogs career with a total of five picks.
