Pos: 
Explosive defensive line prospect with an undeveloped game. Part-time starter the past two seasons who finished with a career-best 28 tackles last season. Plays with proper pad level and fights throughout the action. Impossible to move off the point. Fluidly changes direction, displays good movement skills and holds the point to clog running lanes. Attracts double-team blocks and displays strength at the point as well as a solid head for the ball.
Neg: 
Possesses an average closing burst. Must be more consistent with his hands and develop more moves to get off blocks.
Analysis: 
Alexander flashed a lot of skill as a sophomore in 2017 but never really elevated his game last season. He possesses good size but made a mistake entering the draft, and rather than potentially being a second-day selection a year from now, Alexander will be a late-round pick in the 2019 draft.
