School: Charleston Southern
Hometown: Spartanburg, SC
A stout, compact mauler who brings a feisty chip on his shoulder and was one of the top standouts at HUB Football CAMP (February 2022) during one-one-ones, winning the majority of his reps.
Wore No.61 at HUB Football CAMP on 2/20/22, where he was one of the top performers. Possesses a wide body, strong base and extremely high motor; shows excellent aggressiveness, while maintaining his composure. Showcases excellent hand placement and packs a power punch in pass protection. While somewhat limited as an athlete, he compensates with a quick first step, fast feet and gets into the second level seeking contact. Does lack prototype height and arm length, which makes him best suited on the interior; he can play either guard spot or center. A former walk-on tight end at Charleston Southern, who quickly earned the respect of his teammates due to his work ethic, cerebral awareness and relentlessness. Will ante up the level of competition no matter what team he is brought onto with his athleticism, strength intensity, refined technique, smart hand placement and sound footwork.
“Alex is another big-bodied lineman with athleticism and versatility, a young man who has played against some really good opponents at that level of college football,” Green Bay Blizzard head coach Cory Roberson on Alex Thompson
