    Have you guys seen him play? Willis is good but I wouldn't mind seeing the Patriots land LB Rufus Alexander. Anyone real familiar with him?

    i have not seen him play. He's not first round talent, but from what little I read about him, i wouldn't mind seeing him on our team if we picked him up in the later rounds.

    He gets mad and let's the air out of your tires if you do.

    LIkely because he is 228lbs and ran a 4.81. That and he got dumped, he clearly can not dominate.

    Just the simple fact that his first name 'Rufus' rhymes with 'Doofus' gives me second thoughts about his abilities :)

    Alexander ran a 4.79 at the combine and a 4.69 at his Pro-Day.

    He's got a decent 3 cone # at 7.06. His 20 yard shuttle was ok at 4.27.

    People also probably aren't talking about Alexander because the draft guru's have him pegged as a Tampa-2 LB in the mold of Ian Gold and Derrick Brooks.
