Bio: 
First-year starter who made 51 tackles with one sack and one forced fumble as a senior. Started two games and recorded 45 tackles and one interception in 2016. Made one start and posted 12 tackles as a sophomore.
Pos: 
Tough run-defending linebacker best up the field. Breaks down well, stays with assignments and plays heads-up football. Fluid scraping laterally, gets depth on pass drops and shows ability in zone. Stacks well against the run and holds his ground against blocks to allow teammates to make plays on the ball. Solid special teamer who helps out on coverage units.
Neg: 
Displays average quickness and lateral speed. Late to the action. Marginally effective in pursuit.
Analysis: 
Alexander was a solid run defender at the college level but comes with limited speed and ball skills. He could back up on the inside of a 3-4 alignment if he plays well on special teams.
