Round 5 – Pick 172 – D.J. Alexander – Linebacker – Oregon State
I don’t know who this guy is.
I’m sorry if you feel that makes me a bad draft analyzer/blogger/person.
Not only are there no videos for him on draftbreakdown.com, but he didn’t even make the list of guys that they don’t have videos for.
Dane Brugler’s draft guide ranked the top-100 linebackers, and he didn’t make the list.
This is a picture of his NFL.com player profile.
Wow…that’s awesome. I now know he made 32 career starts. I guess that’s more than I knew before looking into him.
The Chiefs website had a little information on him. At his pro day, he ran a 4.56 40-yard dash and did 17 bench press reps of 225 pounds, but those numbers alone don’t make you a good football player.
Based on the fact that nobody seems to know who this guy is, I’m guessing there may have been better players available and he could have possibly been had in the sixth or seventh round (or if we’re being honest, as an undrafted free agent). I won’t give the pick an “F” since I don’t have any reports or footage that suggests he’s bad at football, but I can’t exactly give it an “A” either.
Pick Grade: D
