Positive: Athletic small school blocker with good upside for the next level. Blocks with good lean, keeps his feet moving, and effectively seals defenders from the action. Gets his hands into pass rushers and knocks them from their angle of attack. Strong at the point and turns defenders off the ball run blocking. Sized well and displays good movement skills. Keeps his head on a swivel and blocks with a nasty attitude.
Negative: Tends to get tall out of his stance and does not consistently block with good knee bend. Lacks overall range and footwork at left tackle.
Analysis: Alford has been a productive college lineman whose game was on the upswing prior to his senior season. He's fallen down draft boards yet is a legitimate prospect who could make it as an inexpensive utility lineman if he gets his game back on track."
