Lorenzo Alexander - DT

 Lorenzo Alexander Grade: 3.4
 Position: DT
 Class: Sr
 School: California
 Conference: Pac-10
 Ht., Wt.: 6-2, 289
 40 Time: 5.17

BIO: Three-year starter awarded varying degrees of All-Conference honors since his sophomore campaign. Posted 28/4.5/1.5 last season after 33/3.5/1 as a junior. Broke in with the first team as a true freshman.

POSITIVES: Hard-working interior plugger with marginal size and growth potential. Gets off the snap with a great first step, keeps his pads low to the ground and drives up the field. Displays speed moving laterally with the ability to pursue from the backside. Quick with his hands, fights to get off blocks and wraps up tackling. Doubled by opponents in the middle of the line. Tough, yet intelligent and immediately locates the ball.

NEGATIVES: Lacks bulk on the inside and easily handled at the point by a single blocker. Marginally productive on the college level.

ANALYSIS: A prospect who lacks top measurables, Alexander is a good football player who must be judged for his ability on the field. A consistent lineman who.ll have a long NFL career as a role player.

PROJECTION: Mid Sixth Round
