Draft Scout *Jaire Alexander News
03/06/18 - 2018 NFL Combine Winners: Jaire Alexander, CB, Louisville...Although he had already earned a spot in the top 20 on my draft board, Alexander had plenty of doubters entering the Combine. His performance in Indianapolis should help quiet those with concerns. Even more impressive than his 4.38 40-yard dash was his short shuttle (3.98) and three-cone (6.71) times. Alexander, who also posted a 35-inch vertical, is slightly undersized at 5-10 and 196 pounds, but he cemented his status as a first-round prospect. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
02/27/18 - 2018 NFL Combine: Key Medical Evaluations: Jaire Alexander, CB, Louisville...Despite being undersized, Alexander is a tough-as-nails competitor. He was able to start only five games in 2017, though, mostly due to a right knee sprain that was reinjured when he was rushed back too early. Alexander also broke a bone in his hand during practice. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
12/22/17 - Louisville junior cornerback Jaire Alexander will not play in next week's TaxSlayer Bowl and will turn pro, the school announced Friday morning. "I know it was a very difficult decision for Jaire," Cardinals coach Bobby Petrino said in a statement. "I appreciate the contributions he made to the program over the last three seasons, and I wish him all the best in the future." Alexander is rated as a late second-round prospect by NFLDraftScout.com. Louisville plays Mississippi State in the TaxSlayer Bowl on Dec. 30 in Jacksonville, Fla. Alexander (5-foot-11, 192 pounds) suffered through an injury-plagued junior year in which he sustained a knee injury in the season opener against Purdue and a broken hand in practice in late October. He finished with 19 tackles and one interception in six games. He entered the season with some preseason All-America honors, coming off a sophomore year in which he intercepted five passes -- two against eventual national champion Clemson -- and was explosive in the return game, including a 69-yard punt return vs. Florida State. - The Sports Xchange
