VT CB Adonis Alexander expected to enter supplemental draft

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

 

Suspended 2x, injured, so not likely going to get an early supplemental pick, but hard to find corners with his size/speed combo, and the lure of getting an early return on a 2019 pick, I could see someone spending a Day 3 pick on him.   Should be interesting to see how this shakes out. 

FWIW apparently he was academically ineligible, so not a personal conduct issue....this time.

I’d like Cleveland to look at him. We have an extra 3rd from the Danny Shelton trade.

Would love it if he came to Dallas. 

I would too, though if he did I'd expect to see him get some work at safety.

Will be interesting to see where he goes. Seems like the talent is there but is the talent worth the potential headache it seems like he may be?

I’d love him for the Chiefs in the 4th.

anyone got a realistic spot for him or supplemental drafts are just too hard to judge ?

I thought he was going to come out this year so I actually did a lot of work on him. He's got a great body to work with, but he's still getting beaten way too much. He doesn't have great COD skills which maim his ability to mirror WR's in man coverage. He's consistently beaten in the intermediate game against guys he should be blanketing. He's very intriguing as a pure cover 3 corner, but I wouldn't in any world spend a 3rd round pick on him, regardless of whether it was the supplemental draft or the regular draft. He's not that kind of talent.

I'm thinking 5th or early 6th for my teams, but I might pass. Team need, and all that.

He's raw and he will have to sit a while, no matter where he goes or which position he plays. I think he's a safety, but he might stay at corner.

Sit to learn or for disciplinary reasons?

I think he doesn't have to sit too much. Remember, where he's coming from. He can play ST, and play it pretty well, which is an immediate impact.

"Sit" as in too raw to start, even with VPI pedigree. ST until then, of course.

Pros don't sit you for discipline based on what you do somewhere else, unless the league mandates (drugs).

VT's STs hasn't been nearly as exciting lately as in Beamer's heyday.

My point is they still played it. He has experience doing it. Not all college starters do (or for long).
