Former Virginia Tech cornerback Adonis Alexander, dismissed from the Hokies on June 1, has been selected by the Washington Redskins, in the NFL’s supplemental draft.

The Redskins gave up a sixth-round pick in next year’s draft to take the 6-foot-2, 207-pound Charlotte native.

Some notes from Keim:

And here you go... Skins had 3 people at his pro day; know his agent (Andy Ross) very well -- also has Tim settle, Mo Harris, Ziggy Hood... and Torrian Gray had him one year at Tech.

I know Alexander has some versatility. Some talk by other teams about S... But Sounds like Skins like him best at corner. If better time in 40, likely gone higher so Skins rather fired up getting him in 6th. (now lose a 6th round pick in spring)

With his size, Alexander should work well as a press corner in a cover-3. Can never have enough young corners. Sort of like pass rushers. Always need 'em. See who develops at primary positions.

Think I read somewhere that we're expected to pick up something like four compensatory picks in 2019, so a 6th rounder for a DB they like seems like a decent move.

Yeah, here's the compensatory picks link btw:

I found this interesting:

Redskins selected Virginia Tech CB Adonis Alexander with a sixth-round pick in the 2018 supplemental draft.

The Redskins will surrender a 2019 sixth-rounder. Western Michigan CB Sam Beal was taken in the third round by the Giants, and Beal had clearly separated himself from Alexander as the draft's top prospect. Alexander stands 6'2/195 but ran a 4.60 forty at his Pro Day with a 35.5-inch vertical and just nine bench-press reps. He had a number of off-field issues in college and was ruled academically ineligible before declaring for the supplemental draft. He's merely a late-round flier who should get at least one year to stick at the end of the roster. Alexander is unlikely to make a rookie-year impact barring injuries.
