College summary: Although Alexander made the SEC All-Freshman team in 2016, the St. Thomas Aquinas graduate didn"t become a consistent starter until he took over for injured starting nose tackle Breiden Fehoko (torn biceps) in Week 7 of the 2018 season. Alexander started in the final six games of the regular season for LSU, recording 28 total tackles, three tackles for loss and a sack before declaring early for the NFL draft before the Fiesta Bowl against Central Florida. Alexander sat out for the bowl game, and the LSU pro day will be his first professional evaluation of the offseason.

College summary: Lack of cornerback depth at LSU helped bring Alexander, a graduate transfer from Stanford, back to Louisiana. Questions surrounded whether or not starting cornerback Kristian Fulton"s suspension for using another person"s urine during a drug test would be lifted by the NCAA in time for the 2018 season. Fulton was reinstated, and Alexander started the first two games of the season at nickel safety until Kary Vincent eventually took over that starting position. The Stanford graduate, who turned down a $110,000-per-year cyber security job to keep pursuing football, ended up finding a place within the defense once injuries started to pile up in the secondary toward the end of the season. When Fulton suffered a season-ending ankle injury against Arkansas, Alexander started at corner in the final three games of the season. Alexander recorded 23 tackles and three passes defended at LSU, adding to his totals at Stanford, where he recorded 57 career tackles and an interception. LSU"s pro day will be Alexander"s first professional evaluation this offseason.
