Alexander, who has lost 30 pounds since his freshman year, has a bright future with his natural size and strength, using better than expected mobility to get to the second level and eliminate linebackers in the run game. He adjusts well to stunts and twists with improved awareness, but does need to refine his hand use to better handle moving targets.

After starting nine games at right tackle as a true freshman in 2012, Alexander moved inside as a sophomore and junior, starting 25 games the past two seasons at left guard. However, he is projected to move back to right tackle as a senior, which will give NFL scouts a better idea of his best next-level position.
