Ravens Roundup: Will the Ravens pick anyone up in the Supplemental Draft?
Jul 11 2019
While they may have benefitted from adding a guy like Thompson, it was sensible for them to avoid the risk and keep their 2020 assets in place, especially given that the team is now lacking a second-round pick in next year's draft.
The pick means the Cards will have to surrender a fifth-round pick in the 2020 draft.
For the Dolphins, adding Simms - especially at the cost of draft picks for 2020 - feels redundant. After all, this team is pretty set with tons of young players all over the roster and doesn't have many holes to fill-at least not holes that can be filled in this manner. Simms was a player that was expected to be drafted, but teams made a decision to take a pass on him.
The NFL Supplemental Draft is today (Wednesday) and all eyes are on the Ravens to see what moves they make, or do not make. The Cardinals had two fifth-rounders after acquiring an extra one from the Miami Dolphins in the Josh Rosen trade this off-season.
The Cardinals' full-time safety rotation that began the 2018 season featured small, do-everything safety Budda Baker, unheralded free-agent signee Tre Boston, and veteran Antoine Bethea.
