Danario Alexander ready to show NFL teams what he can do

Danario Alexander, a talented wide receiver at Missouri who ran into knee problems at the wrong time, has been cleared to work out for NFL teams.

Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the news, and adds that the Rams could have interest in the big target who excelled in college. There were concerns about Alexander’s left knee moving toward the draft and those were heightened when he underwent surgery in February, a procedure that led him to go undrafted.

There could be a pro day scheduled for Alexander soon, and the Rams could bring him in for a look. Alexander was a big-time performer for Chase Daniel and then he was even better last season without the former star. Alexander caught 113 passes for 1,781 yards and 14 touchdowns.

“We need to get the medical reports,” Rams general manager Billy Devaney told Thomas. “If he's cleared physically, we'll probably bring him in for a visit and a physical.”

Alexander is 6-4, 221 pounds and while some scouts doubt his speed, he’s claiming to be running in the 4.4-range in the 40-yard dash. Certainly, he’s worth a number of teams looking at. Considering the lack of depth in Carolina, the Panthers would be wise to at least kick the tires on him if they get a positive medical report.
