Cons:

  • not great against the run
  • although willing, has poor tackling technique

Overall

Jaire Alexander is a versatile corner with great route awareness. He relies on good technique and ball skills due to his lack of elite speed. He holds some value being a punt returner. Alexander needs to be better at tackling and can struggle against faster receivers. He is looking like a 2nd round pick.
