Prospect Profile: Phillip Alexander


Full Name: Phillip Alexander School: Duke Pos: DE

Ht: 6-3 Wt: 268 40: 4.81 Year: 4Sr

Bio: Three-year starter who totaled 30/5.5/2.5 as a senior after 59/18.5/6.5 as a true junior in ‘03. Played in two games in '04, then was sidelined with a leg injury.

Pos: Hard-working pass rusher who consistently makes plays up the field. Fast off the edge, can flatten and pursue from the backside. Works hard to get off blocks, resilient and stays on his feet.

Analysis: A team player with a businesslike work attitude, Alexander seemed a little tentative last year but offers possibilities as a pass rush specialist.
