LB Dominique Alexander Talks About Decision to Forgo Senior Season

Dominique Alexander's son, Noah, just turned 1, and providing for him made the choice to enter the 2016 NFL Draft an easy one.

Alexander, who started the last three seasons at linebacker for Oklahoma, returned to Norman for OU's annual Pro Day last week. After his workout, Alexander spoke with reporters.

Q: What is the positive feedback you've received from scouts so far?
A: Really they love the way I move in space. My coverage and things like that. They say I'm an instinctive player and I have a nose for the football. They said I can really comprehend the game well. There's not many times when I'm in the wrong spot.

What things do you want to improve on?
Everything. This is a big transition. Really my play strength and really getting off blockers. I can get to the football. I just have to be more consistent with my finish.

Was the decision to leave college early a tough one?
It wasn't tough at all because of my son. I only got to see my son two times a month. That's not a tough decision. I don't think it would be for anybody. … I love OU. From the time I got here, I was playing. I love Coach (Bob) Stoops and everything they've done.

But for me, deep down, I could play a football game on Saturday but I wouldn't be happy because on Sundays, I'm not around what makes me truly happy.
