Alexander finished his career at Louisville, where he played in 31 career games, had 77 tackles, 2.0 for loss, 7 interceptions, 15 pass breakups, 1 forced fumble, and 1 fumble recovered. He has great speed, is a solid tackler, a ball hawk, and good in coverage. He was a special teams standout, as he is a dynamic return man. He s a defensive play maker, a difference maker on defense, and is a shut down cornerback. He is very physical, and does not back down. He is also a relentless defender. On the other hand, he is a bit undersized, but that does not hurt his game. With that said, I view Alexander ending up being a 1st-2nd round pick when it is all said and done.
