Ourlads' Analysis:

2016 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about VADAL ALEXANDER: LSU, 6052 326 5.56. Four-year starter from Buford, GA. Two years experience at right tackle and two at left guard where he lined up next to La’el Collins. With his length we thought he may have a chance at tackle, but he really struggles in space. Needs help on both his right and left side. Plays with a good base in pass protection and uses his long arms and big hands to his advantage. A phone booth type player in the running game with slow feet. Doesn’t stay engaged with his target. Gives a good “pop” on down blocks. Keeps his head on a swivel in pass protection. Can block the edge of a defense. An aggressive run blocker with average strength for the position. A power based scheme player that can maul and overwhelm defenders. Struggles to block defenders in space. Looks awkward on the perimeter blocking corner support. As a pass blocker, Alexander is better suited to have a guy head up. Has a tendency to lose his knee bend and play high. Can get walked back to the quarterback once he plays straight-legged. Can’t handle edge speed and struggles to anchor a bull rush. Gives up pressure off the edge. Narrows his base and loses balance at times. OSR:41/47. Fourth/fifth round. (A-35 1/4, H-10 1/2, BP-25, 10-1.93).
