Virginia Tech cornerback Adonis Alexander, Western Michigan cornerback Sam Beal and Mississippi State safety Brandon Bryant all are expected to petition the NFL for entry into the supplemental draft, which takes place on July 11, according to Teams seeking defensive back help could make a late rookie addition with any of the three and have them eligible to report to training camp a few weeks later.

Shurmur’s joke did reveal the most improved part of Halapio’s game: he actually never snapped a football until former Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Mike Alstott encouraged him to try it during a training session prior to the former becoming a 6-foot-2, 300-plus pound car salesman.

It was weird, I played right guard for five years at Florida, and it wasn’t until Alstott convinced me to give center a shot that I learned how to snap, Halapio said.
