Biography: Senior totals included 29/2/1 when he started 13 games after 25/1.5/1 as a junior after he started eight. Played the first three games of the 2007 season before a knee injury sidelined him.
Positives: Nice-sized defensive tackle who fights hard and plays with good quickness. Explodes off the snap, fights with his hands throughout the action and keeps his feet driving up the field on contact. Fluid changing direction, makes plays down the line of scrimmage and plays with good pad level. Resilient and tough to knock off his feet.
Negatives: Shows marginal speed in pursuit. Easily controlled at the point by a single blocker. Marginally productive in college.
Analysis: Despite his size, Alexander plays more like a one-gap, penetrating tackle rather than a space eater upfront. He offers a good degree of upside potential, yet he must start to play to his measurables and increase his productivity to stick around the NFL for any length of time.
