So you like linebackers? So you need linebackers? So you can’t wait to see them excel playing behind Suh? Earthlings, you and I have something in common then! I have an linebacker for you today. His name is Kwon Alexander.
The LSU senior linebacker played all three linebacker positions during his time at LSU. So you know he is versatile. Solid against the run and solid in coverage. Kwon probably projects best in the NFL as a weak side outside linebacker.
The Dolphins drafted a lot of SEC players last year, so you know they respect the SEC. There are few teams in the SEC with more talent annually than LSU. Kwon Alexander is another example of the depth of their talent. In 2014 Kwon had over 100 tackles. But before last season, he didn’t see the filed much playing behind a lot of talent at LSU. In 2012 he only had 12 tackles and barely saw the field. So I guess Kwon is fresh.
Kwon Alexander is known for his aggressiveness. Sometimes e is a bit too aggressive and takes himself out of the play. On the other hand, sometimes he takes the ballcarrier out of the play. The 6-2, 227 pound linebacker is also known for his high motor. So if he does take himself out of the play – he’s gonna find his way back in it.
Kwon Alexander had a great combine displaying his exceptional athleticism. He ran the 40 in 4.55, he had 24 reps in the bench press and he jumped over 10 feet int he broad jump. That athleticism, high motor and aggressiveness can really help out an NFL defense. If I was going to compare Kwon Alexander to an Alien Weapon of Destruction I would compare him to a Gravity Motor Bike. It never runs out of gas. Pretty cool isn’t it!
