But, he isn’t perfect. Like any other player making the jump from college to the pros, there is a learning curve. The game is faster, the quarterbacks are better with the football, the opponents are faster, and they are more nimble on their feet. Alexander saw things at the NFL level that he never saw before. He is a beast, but he has room to grow, and some of that growth occurred as the season went along.
Let’s go inside the film room and take a look at a couple of plays that involved Alexander, and look at the good, and view where he needs to improve. He made some mistakes, but learned. We are going to look at week one against the Titans, and week 8 against the Falcons. The growth is staggering.
