Adonis Alexander officially enters NFL Supplement Draft
Adonis Alexander officially entered the NFL Supplemental Draft, agent Andy Ross tweeted.
The Virginia Tech cornerback will hold his Pro Day on June 20 in anticipation of the July 11 supplemental draft.
Fitzpatrick started 10 games as a true freshman for a defense loaded with NFL prospects. He has played corner and safety and has pass rush skills. He does his best work in the biggest moments and shows a rare desire to be prepared and to succeed.
He has played safety (strong and free), cornerback in the nickel, weakside linebacker in specialty packages, and pass-rusher from an outside linebacker spot. His talent, combined with his leadership abilities, will make him a key voice in the locker room.
There is plenty to work with for a coaching staff that can get it out of him. He should be a versatile player with the physical traits to consistently dominate. But his 12.5 tackles for loss and 5.5 sacks in 2017 left some looking for more.
Thomas has overcome a lot along the way, as both of his parents died a year apart before he was 10 years old. While injuries impacted him this past season, his two-touchdown game against Ohio State offered a glimpse of his ability.
He missed four games this past season with an ankle injury. Landry is an impact player on the edge who had 30.5 tackles for loss and 21.5 sacks the past two seasons combined. He is a high-effort player with rush skills who could be chosen in the first round.
An interior defender who was credited with a 100-tackle season is a rare find. Phillips had 103 tackles this past season, with 17 for loss and 6.5 sacks. Phillips was 96-11 as a high school wrestler and won the 2013 junior national heavyweight championship.
