Ourlads' Profile:

2015 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about KWON ALEXANDER: LSU, 6006 227 4.56. Junior entry from Oxford, AL. Has experience playing all three linebacker spots in the 4-3 scheme. Projects as a weak side player. Alexander shows elite athleticism and aggression consistently. He pursues well and has the quickness in his hips and feet as a cover linebacker. A legitimate four down linebacker in the NFL. He can do it all from the second level of the defense. Explosive from a standstill position. Rangy, sideline to sideline type speed in pursuit. Fills the running lane hard and angry. Consistently delivers a violent punch to blockers. Can finagle his way through traffic and locate the ball. Slippery on the move to blockers, can maintain his path despite getting clipped by blockers. A lot of presence, can anchor and also hit hard. Sound tackler, will make the effort to drive ball carriers backward. Can adjust his body late and maintain power despite not having ideal body positioning. Quick and fast in coverage. Can cover a lot of ground whether it be vertical or lateral. Effective in zone and man coverage. Could use more good weight, especially with how much he mixes it up between the tackles. Can get lost in traffic at times. 2014 stats: 90 T, 7.5 TFL, 1.5 sacks, 5 QBH, 2 FF. Edge speed:left 2.07, right 2.02. OSR:2/14. Third/fourth round. (A-30 1/4, H-9 1/4, BP-24, SS-4.20).
