Jaire Alexander Ranked The Number One CB By One NFL Draft Analyst

Jaire Alexander

Despite Jaire Alexander missing a significant portion of this season due to an injury suffered in the first game, one draft analyst has him ranked as the best CB in this year’s draft class.

Luke Easterling of Draft Wire has Jaire atop his list of best CBs at this point in time. However, Easterling cautioned These rankings aren’t set in stone.

“These rankings will be fluid throughout the predraft process, based on film work, all-star performances, workouts numbers and other factors,” Easterling wrote.

Still this is lofty praise for Jaire Alexander and points to the fact this year may be his last in a UofL uniform.

You can read Luke Easterling’s complete list below.

Jaire Alexander The Game Changer

Jaire Alexander

Jaire Alexander’s presence on the field is undeniably a game changer. His numbers since returning have been outstanding, and watching him play is just as fun. David Hale with ESPN has taken notice as well, and makes his case for why Jaire is the best CB in college football.

The Barbour Shop: Bobby Ball 1.0 Returns

Louie

Last year, going into the Governor’s Cup game, UofL was coming off a low. They were destroyed on national TV by Houston. They hadn’t really been playing all that well. UofL fans thought we would just waltz into PJCS, crush UK, and move on to a good bowl; maybe even the Orange Bowl. None of that happened. We saw a 3 game losing streak to end the year.

This year, we feel the same way. The difference is we are justified in the feeling. Bobby Ball 1.0 appears to be back. UofL is rolling right now after 2 blowout wins against Virginia and Syracuse. They played their most complete game this year against Syracuse.

The defense got all kinds of turnovers. Syracuse could not move the ball against them. Jaire Alexander was playing like the best CB in the nation.

The Barbour Shop: The Real UofL Stood Up Against Virginia

UofL football meandered through much of this season like a lost puppy trying to find its way home through lonely streets and alleys. They looked great at times and looked horrendous at others. Sometimes within a single game they could look like world beaters and then like broken men.

Inconsistent play was a problem for the offense. It was a combination of player focus and disjointed play calling. For the defense, horrid fundamentals and bland play calling consistently made the defense look like an electric fence with the power turned off. The problem for the team and coaching staff as a whole was there seemed to be a lack of fire. Players and coaches sometimes looked like they’d rather be anywhere, but on the field. It obviously showed in an undisciplined and unfocused approach to the game at hand.

Nunnsense | Will Saturday Be The Last Home Game For Lamar, Jaire, Petrino & Sirmon?

Nunnsense

Lamar and Jaire

Short answer - Yes, Yes, No and Hope So.

EDITOR’S NOTE: The writings & musings of Jeff Nunn do not necessarily reflect those of CSZ.

On Saturday, we will honor our senior class that has won 32 games over a four-year span and will make its fourth-straight appearance in a bowl game.¬†The game against Syracuse at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium is set for a 3:30 kick off and the seniors will be honored prior to the game. Louisville officially announced that a total of¬†14 seniors will walk on to their home field for the final time as a player. I hope that every fan gets in their seat early to show their appreciation for these student athletes. Also, during the game, former University of Louisville quarterback Stefan LeFors will become the 23rd football player to have his jersey honored.

The day started with the jersey ceremony for Card forever Anthony Floyd. Then Card forever, Eric Wood, spelled out the C-A-R-D-S cheer. Louisville scored early and looked good because Boston College entered the day scoring 16.3 points per game and were 121st in the country in scoring before Saturday. But the Card defense gave up 45 points, 555 total yards (364 of those rushing yards). AJ Dillon ran for more yards (272) than any other Louisville opponent had before. Lamar was 19 of 39 passing for 332 yards and 2 passing touchdowns. He rushed for 180 yards on 22 carries and scored 3 rushing touchdowns. Dez Fitzpatrick finished with 7 catches , 127 yards and a touchdown.

Here are some pictures of the day…

Jaire Alexander

Press Release

LOUISVILLE, Ky. ‚Äď Every football program needs a ray or two of sunshine now and again. For the Louisville football team, it’s coming in the form preseason All-American Jaire Alexander and one unusual element: rain.

The Cardinals are coming off a tough loss at NC State, with a stout defensive team in Boston College in waiting. Louisville has spent plenty of time since the Thursday night contest watching film and working in practice to correct those mistakes.

Practice wasn’t going to be easy, especially given the forecast, but that didn’t stop the Cardinals from picking up momentum heading into another league contest.
