Redskins selected Virginia Tech CB Adonis Alexander with a sixth-round pick in the 2018 supplemental draft.
The Redskins will surrender a 2019 sixth-rounder. Western Michigan CB Sam Beal was taken in the third round by the Giants, and Beal had clearly separated himself from Alexander as the draft's top prospect. Alexander stands 6'2/195 but ran a 4.60 forty at his Pro Day with a 35.5-inch vertical and just nine bench-press reps. He had a number of off-field issues in college and was ruled academically ineligible before declaring for the supplemental draft. He's merely a late-round flier who should get at least one year to stick at the end of the roster. Alexander is unlikely to make a rookie-year impact barring injuries. Jul 11 - 2:03 PM

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports Virginia Tech CB Adonis Alexander passed his drug test ahead of Wednesday's Supplemental Draft.

Per Garafolo, Alexander has passed each drug test he's taken over the past eight months. The 21-year-old is trying to show teams that he's on the straight and narrow after being arrested for marijuana possession in 2016. He's looking to become the first player selected in the Supplemental Draft since Isaiah Battle in 2015.

The Dolphins held a private interview with Virginia Tech CB Adonis Alexander.

Virginia Tech CB Adonis Alexander visited with the Jets.

The Saints, Colts, and Kansas City also met with him. It confirms Alexander's league wide interest after 26 teams attended his Pro Day. Alexander (6'2/195) has starting traits but was suspended multiple times at Virginia Tech and his measurables (4.6 forty) would have ranked at the bottom of this year's class. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline gives Alexander a third-round supplemental grade.

Virginia Tech CB Adonis Alexander ran the 40-yard dash in 4.60 seconds at his Pro Day.

Alexander measured smaller than his college profile at 6-foot-2, 195 pounds. He also posted a 35.5-inch vertical and nine bench-press reps. Hyped as a Day 2 pick, Alexander is shaping as a late-round flyer. Alexander's middling Pro Day should solidify Western Michigan CB Sam Beal as this year's top supplemental prospect.

Virginia Tech CB Adonis Alexander will enter the 2018 supplemental draft.

Alexander (6'3/207) had multiple suspensions at Virginia Tech. He was ruled academically ineligible this spring and will turn pro after three seasons as a semi-regular starter. Despite off-field concerns, there's legitimate NFL interest in Alexander. He projects as a mid-to-late round supplemental pick.
