LSU LB Kwon Alexander "is what today's NFL linebacker is with his ability to run," said NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock.
Alexander ran the fastest 40-yard dash amongst linebackers on Sunday with a 4.55 time. Mayock sees Alexander -- who spent most of his time on the strongside at LSU but has experience at all three spots -- as a weakside linebacker in the NFL. Alexander, who also had a good 36-inch vertical jump and a broad jump of 10 feet, 1 inch, led LSU last season with 90 tackles. Feb 23 - 11:02 PM

LSU LB Kwon Alexander ran the fastest 40-yard dash amongst linebackers with a 4.55 time.

Because of his crazy wheels, NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock said recently that Alexander "fits what the NFL is today." The 6-foot-2, 215-pounder has the ability to handle all three linebacker positions in an even front, but he spent most of his time on the strongside in college. He's ticketed for the outside in the NFL. "Heavy production this year," Mayock said "I think he fits what today's NFL is, which is they're getting smaller and faster at the linebacker position. I think he's probably a third- or fourth-round linebacker. I think he can fit any scheme. He can run. He's not quite as much a downhill thumper, but that's the old-school NFL."

LSU junior LB Kwon Alexander announced on Twitter that he will enter the 2015 Draft.

The 6-foot-2, 215-pound LB has the ability to handle all three linebacker positions in an even front, though he's spent most of his time on the strongside with the Tigers. TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline mentioned earlier this month that Alexander was giving serious consideration on making the jump to the next level, and gave him a late-round grade. The LSU prospect led the Tigers defense with a team-high 90 tackles this season.

LSU junior LB Kwon Alexander "is another Tiger giving serious consideration to entering the draft," according to TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Alexander grades as a late-round pick, according to the analyst. The junior can handle all three linebacker positions in an even front, though he's spent most of his time on the strongside with the Tigers. Alexander, who is very mobile and can track the ball sideline-to-sideline, will probably be relegated to 4-3 consideration due to his lack of bulk. Alexander is a skilled special teamer and should fare well if forced to make a roster as a contributor on that unit.

LSU starting freshman LB Kwon Alexander may return from a broken ankle prior to the Tigers' bowl game.

"We're thinking Kwon may make it back for the bowl game, if not before that," head coach Les Miles said. The injury occurred in the second game Alexander started, but he was playing fairly well prior to that.

LSU starting freshman LB Kwon Alexander will reportedly miss the remainder of the season with a broken ankle.

Alexander has played in every game this season and had recently been starting at the strong side linebacker position. Junior inside linebacker Kevin Minter also missed time during last weekend's game against Florida but later returned. The school has yet to confirm the report on Alexander's injury.
