Training Camp Roster Preview: Alex Wesley

What you need to know about receiver Alex Wesley.

Background

Former Northern Colorado receiver Alex Wesley appeared in 42 college games, catching 156 balls for 2,716 yards and 17 touchdowns. Wesley also has 9 career kickoffs for 73 yards, including five from 2018. He doesn’t have ideal measurables at 6'0, 190 pounds, but he brings an explosive lower body and good long speed to the field.

While Wesley’s 4.45-second 40-yard dash is good, the fact that he was also a three-time Big Sky Conference 400-meter dash winner proves the point aptly.

Wesley will never run 400 meters (437 yards) in a football game, but the fact that he can shows both his speed and endurance. Entering a crowded receiving room, Wesley’s best chance to get his foot in the door will be on special teams.

Looking Ahead

Barring injury, Wesley's best hope is to get a spot on the practice squad if he can show consistency on special teams.
