The Dolphins were also in attendance for Western Michigan CB Sam Beal‘s Pro Day a few weeks ago.
Regarding Alexander, Tony Pauline of DraftAnalyst.com reported he worked out for more than two dozen NFL teams at his Pro Day and met with the Jets, Saints, Chiefs and Colts.
At his Pro Day, Alexander measured 6020/195 pounds and posted a 40-yard dash time of 4.61 to go along with 7.18 (3 cone), 4.37 (short shuttle), 35.5 inches (vertical) and 10-feet-4-inch (broad jump).
Pauline adds that Alexander’s length, balls skills and arm size (over 32 inches) are “very attractive” to NFL teams.
The expectation is that Alexander and Beal could both be selected this year, with Beal likely being the first name off the board.
The Supplement Draft will be held on July 11.
Alexander played three seasons at Virginia Tech and recorded 125 tackles, 4.5 tackles for a loss, one sack, seven interceptions, 17 pass defenses, and a forced fumble over the course of 32 games.
The last player taken in a supplement draft came back in 2015 when the Rams elected to use a fifth-round pick on OT Isaiah Battle. Before that, the Browns used a second-round pick on WR Josh Gordon back in 2012.
We’ll have more regarding Alexander and the supplemental draft as the news is available.
