Well this pick concludes the 2016 draft class for us. I like addressing the interior here.

Very good value in the 7th round, he had 3rd-4th round grades from the media and has a realistic chance to make the roster.

I like this as a likely to make the 53 7th round pick. I didn't like him early like most rankings had him, but in the 7th is very solid imo. Much better scheme fit for depth than Bergstrom was. I like it.

More of a 'name' so no doubt it will be deemed a good pick...

In my opinion they are a joke. In the last ten years there drafts sucked.

Incoming BP scold for referring to predicted draft position.

Feli could spend more time at back up C with this pick.

Big fat unathletic mauler. Will probably take Felicianos spot.

CBS Sports:
Quote:
Alexander is a masher in the run game with the brute strength and bully mentality to generate movement. He moves better than expected for his size, but isn't a top athlete and will struggle in space. Alexander has reliable football character and offers experience at multiple positions, but his NFL future is likely inside at guard where he should compete for starting snaps as a rookie.


NFL Network:
Quote:
Teams will no doubt be intrigued by Alexander's length, size and power, but this year should have proved that his only position in the pros is at guard and that his lack of athleticism could limit which teams will consider him in the draft. Alexander has enough power in tight quarters to win one­-on-­one battles, but his lack of balance and functional footwork will diminish his success rate as a block finisher. It might be Alexander's best interest to lean down in an attempt to improve his quickness and overall body control if he is to become a consistent, NFL player.

As a right tackle, Vadal Alexander did not allow a QB hit in the regular season

I like the Alexander pick by Oakland. Had 4th-round grade on him. Reminds me some of Raiders' third-rounder a few years ago, Gabe Jackson.

He is purely a G at the next level I imagine.

yeah he looks like competition for feliciano who looked pretty bad in limited time as a rookie. he also offers the ability to be a 3rd string right tackle

Apparently Vader had the slowest 10 yard split of any lineman at the draft.
