The Giants on Wednesday picked Western Michigan cornerback Sam Beal in the third round of the NFL Supplemental Draft, the league announced, making him the first player taken in the supplemental draft in three years and the first to go that high since Josh Gordon went in the second round in 2012.
The Giants had the third pick in the third round, thus forfeiting their selection in the same round in the 2019 NFL Draft.
The Redskins later selected Virginia Tech cornerback Adonis Alexander in the sixth round.
Without a Pro Day for Carter, NFL teams don’t have a great reference point for his timed speed, which is important for small-school players. He’s from a rough neighborhood in East Chicago and lost Division I offers after he was involved in a fight in school during his senior season that required him to finish his high school education with online classes. He also had poor SAT scores that limited his Division I opportunities. He lives with his grandparents, as his father is not involved in his life, and his mother is paralyzed from the shoulder down on one side of her body. He did not attend spring practices before his ineligibility was announced and has received mixed reviews from those informed about the program.
Cardinals general manager Steve Keim was arrested on a charge of DUI on July 4 and was released the same night, according to multiple reports.
Chandler police confirmed the arrest to ABC 15 and said the full report was not complete and further details cannot be revealed at this time, but police did say Keim was cited during a traffic stop.
Statements from the team and GM Steve Keim.
The Cardinals released a statement Saturday morning acknowledging Keim’s arrest:
We are aware of the incident on Wednesday involving Steve Keim. He fully recognizes the seriousness of the situation and that this type of behavior is unacceptable and inexcusable, the statement said.
Strikeouts are way up, so getting a base hit is more difficult than ever because of the velocity and how good pitchers are now. You see velocity and secondary weapons for four or five at-bats a game.
