Jaire Alexander and Harold Laundry

Boston College defensive end Harold Landry. One would think that taking on Louisville’s high-powered offense would be a good game to evaluate the edge rusher Landry, but it actually wasn’t. Boston College kept Landry playing containment throughout the game, as they wanted to force Jackson to stay in the pocket. Landry made a few tackles on Jackson in pursuit downfield on designed quarterback runs. Boston College let Jackson pass from clean pockets all game long, and they didn’t allow Landry pin his ears back to rush the passer. Thus, this game shouldn’t hurt or help Landry’s draft stock. Laundry finished the game with 5 total tackles.

 

Alexander

 
Louisville cornerback Jaire Alexander missed a lot of game action this year with a leg injury he sustained in the season opener. Similarly to Landry, this was a bad game to evaluate Alexander as Boston College went heavy with a ground-based offense. In the fourth quarter, Alexander flew into the backfield to make a tackle, but he couldn’t get the back on the ground and that let him escape downfield for a long touchdown run. Shortly later, Alexander came up just short of a leaping interception. Alexander has cover skills for the NFL, and that will be more visible to evaluate in other games in the back half of this season. Alexander finished the day with 3 total tackles.
