LSU senior OG Vadal Alexander "has shed at least 30 pounds since arriving on campus, giving him a shot to stay at tackle when he arrives in the NFL," writes NFL.com's Chad Reuter.
Alexander (6-foot-6, 320 pounds) will move back to right tackle (where he earned Freshman All-American honors) this season after spending the past two starting next to La'el Collins at left guard. "It is possible Alexander has done enough to land a first-round slot as a guard with his length, strength, and footwork," wrote Reuter.
