    The most underrated prospect I know. When Jeremy Maclin left for the Eagles Missouri needed to fill that hole immediately and Alexander stepped up his game. He's regarded as a late round prospect but I feel the Packers should take him ONLY IF HE GOES UNDRAFTED. He has rare speed at 6'5" and the packers don't have a tall threat like that other than Jermichael Finley. The biggest knock on Alexander is that his route running is very raw but Green Bay's WR coach can definitely fix that.

    If I remember correctly earlier in the draft season this guy was projected to be the second WR taken after Bryant, I wonder what happened if he is gonna be a late rounder now, he sure looks talented.

    He suffered a torn ACL in practice which really hurt his draft stock. You're right I definitely saw him as the best receiver in the draft next to Dez Bryant. I doubt he'll go undrafted as some other team might give him a chance with a 5th or 6th round draft choice.

    We can draft a couple guys (injury) and wait a year before they get on the field. The OLB from Wisconsin, and this guy. Especially since they were rated pretty high before they got hurt. I mean.........chances are......a 6th or 7th round guy has less chance of making the team anyhow and are usually projects.
