NFL Draft Preview: Alec James

Wisconsin Badgers linemen have a reputation upon departing for the NFL, and Alec James is one of the next linemen looking to make an impact at the next level. While the typical image of a Badgers lineman is of a hulking behemoth, James is a player who offers positional versatility, particularly for a team that changes alignments or doesn't hold to conventional norms at front-seven positions.

It'll be interesting to see which team brings him in, and which role he will earn for that team in the NFL. Draft Overview:

James is an active, athletic defensive lineman who lacks the physical traits of an NFL interior lineman and the athletic traits of a defensive end. While his instincts and awareness are top-notch, he might struggle to find a home on an NFL roster unless he can bulk up and carve out a niche as a sub-package interior rusher. Projection: Undrafted/Free Agent
