Lorenzo Alexander appreciation thread

Great find by the front office. Offense, defense, special teams, he literally does it all. I just wanted to throw some love his way.

Yeah, Alexander does deserve some recognition. And he moves pretty well for a 300+ pounder. I actually chuckled a bit when they had him going in motion on offense.

I still can't believe he plays both ways. That is f'ing awesome.

Yup. I'm with the groupthink on this one. Solid find who seems to improve as the season goes on. I wonder if he will spend his career as "everyone's backup" or if he will move into the starting line-up somewhere (either as part of a three man DT rotation or as a starting guard).

Which of those scenarios would be better? Personally, I don't know. Of course it would be great if he developed into a dominating defensive tackle, but it seems he's more valuable to the team as "everyone's backup". He's been a critical piece of the puzzle in that capacity this season, and he certainly gets plenty of playing time. He may get screwed in the money department though, if he's not starting. I guess it'll depend on what the Oline and Dline depth looks like next season.

Re: Lorenzo Alexander appreciation thread

He's done what he has to do to stay on the 53 man roster, and his flexibility to play both ways and on special teams assures that he will have a roster spot going forward. And he's played well, which makes it that much better. Just hope he remembers to keep his helmet on when making tackles...

Re: Lorenzo Alexander appreciation thread

I've heard it said that Alexander is the strongest player on the team. Offensive and defensive coaches probably see the guy as a project with long term potential, but it's pretty cool that they have found a way to utilize his talents on offense, defense, and special teams.

I love the upside on this kid, here's some info. from when he played at Cal. The guy can run a 4.8 40 that's pretty impressive for a big guy.

Re: Lorenzo Alexander appreciation thread

gotta love this guy, even if at this point he's a "jack of all trades, master of none" as someone just said.

It will be interesting to see if the coaches feel he's got enough potential to develop as a DT that they don't draft at that position this year. He gets more playing time on the o line. With his speed, he'd be an ideal pulling guard. Seems that they have a lot of confidence in his blocking ability.

I think having a guy like this on the team is very good for morale too. He plays on both sides + teams & that should help team chemistry.
