Regardless, Alexander, who has lost 30 pounds since his freshman year, has a bright future with his natural size and strength, using better than expected mobility to get to the second level and eliminate linebackers in the run game," Brugler wrote. The 6-foot-6, 326-pound Alexander dropped 15 pounds during the offseason to improve his footwork. Alexander, LSU's most seasoned lineman, has played in a total of 38 games, with 34 starts on his resume. Aug 26 - 2:25 PM

LSU senior G/T Vadal Alexander "is best-suited inside on the next level," believes NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein.

The 6-foot-6, 320-pound Alexander is moving back to RT -- the position at which he was a Freshman All-American -- this fall after spending the past two campaigns at LG. Nevertheless, Zierlein included him with interior lineman in his rankings, grading him as the fourth-best in the country. "Despite his massive frame, Alexander is better than expected at locating and successfully engaging targets on the second level," Zierlein wrote. "At the point of attack, Alexander has proven to be too much for many an SEC defensive tackle. Alexander can be a bit of a lunger at times and does too much waist-bending, but the positives far outshine the negatives for this big guy."

ESPN.com's Greg Ostendorf believes there's an opportunity for LSU senior G/T Vadal Alexander "to go from being a counterpart to being the star," with La'el Collins off to the NFL.

"Now that Collins is gone, there's an opportunity to go from being a counterpart to being the star. For Alexander, that starts with moving back to right tackle, the same position that he played as a freshman at LSU, and the position that should help him earn more money at next year's NFL draft," Ostendorf wrote. The 6-foot-6, 320-pound Alexander is now the most experienced player along LSU's offensive line. The LSU prospect has played in 38 games with 34 starts under his belt. Alexander will be the anchor for the Tigers' line this season and he'll have a great opportunity to improve on his draft stock playing on the outside.

The 6-foot-6, 320-pound Alexander will move back to RT -- the position at which he was a Freshman All-American -- after spending the past two campaigns at LG.

"Although it's possible Alexander has done enough to land a first-round slot as a guard with his length, strength, and footwork, success at right tackle this season is crucial for Alexander to earn the respect of general managers across the league as a pass protector on the outside."

NFL media notes that "few [offensive lineman] have shown more versatility" than LSU senior OG Vadal Alexander over the past few years.

"He's played both tackle and guard, and he's played both the left and right sides," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Chase Goodbread. "Center is about the only position that Alexander hasn't logged game time for the Tigers. His pro projection? Guard, or right tackle." Alexander (6-foot-6, 320 pounds) teamed up on the left side with La'el Collins for the past few years, but he will now shift back to right tackle (where he earned Freshman All-American honors). It's a welcome move, as Alexander deserves the opportunity to show the NFL that he could stick at RT long-term.
