Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Aggressive with good awareness to track the ball and attack. Tenacious, tough, competItIve and versatile.

  • Has fluid footwork to redirect, reverse momentum and close with a burst. Regularly first off the ball with good snap anticipation.
  • Plays with exceptional balance and body control, showing off a nasty spin move to counter his speed, with the natural instincts to know when to use it.
  • Flashes strength at the point of attack with active, violent hand use. Forceful with his upper body to defeat blocks. Strong hustle player.
  • Coordinated with smooth movement skills. High-effort rusher and works through the whistle. Relentless worker, fighting off blocks and battling to the ball.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Doesn't change direction easily. Can be late off the snap.
  • Alexandre lacks elite traits in the pass rush and will need to develop a counter move.
  • He’ll have some issues if asked to take on blocks, but Alexandre also lacks the kind of sideline-to-sideline range you can build a defense around.
