Reports from earlier in the week mentioned that Alexander was expected to be among the prospect to apply for entry in the draft, so this shouldn’t come as a big surprise.
Alexander has reportedly had off-field issues but offers great size at 6-3, talent and a high upside. Virginia Tech recently dismissed Alexander.
The Supplement 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.
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.
