Tom Pelissero reports that former Virginia Tech CB Adonis Alexander is expected to enter the 2018 supplemental draft.

According to Pelissero, Alexander has a lot of off-field issues for teams to sort through in the coming weeks, but he also has great size at 6-3, talented and a high upside. Pelissero believes Alexander should get drafted this year.

Virginia Tech recently dismissed Alexander.

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.

It’s rare for anyone to be selected in a supplemental draft, so it’s notable to hear that Alexander could be selected in this year’s draft.

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.
