Danario Alexander was the best wide receiver to play in the Big 12 last season. He was double covered much of the second half of the season and still managed to get 113 Receptions for 1,781 Yards. With his height (6'5"), the smaller defensive backs he faced had mounds of trouble in covering him. Alexander may not have all the same sort of hype surrounding him as a Dez Bryant or a Golden Tate, but he could end up panning out as the best receiver in this draft.
The Tigers wide receiver in 2006 played in all 13 games. He didn't pile up a ton of stats but he presented something else that teams would have to game plan for; and even more so the following year. His Junior year, the numbers dropped off a bit but he still presented a threat on the field.
The main reason Alexander's stock isn't as high as some of the others is because he did only have the one outstanding year in the four years he was with The Tigers. I feel that some team is going to be very happy with the selection though.
Below we'll look at some of Alexanders accomplishments.
Here are some video highlights of Alexander and his career at Missouri.

SUMMARY AND PROJECTION:
As mentioned above, Alexander could be this years sleeper. He has the potential to end up as a Randy Moss type of player. With his last season as the last thing scouts and others remember, it's possible that he may go higher than projected. But for practical purpose, I will keep him slotted in the most likely position he could end up being selected. Alexander is 6'5" and weighs roughly 215 LBS.
Possibilities -- Round 3: Picks 65-95, Round 4: Picks 96-127.
