Former Virginia Tech cornerback Adonis Alexander, dismissed from the Hokies on June 1, has been selected by the Washington Redskins, in the NFLa€™s supplemental draft.

The Redskins gave up a sixth-round pick in next yeara€™s draft to take the 6-foot-2, 207-pound Charlotte native.

Alexander played in 34 games in his Tech career, making 15 starts. He recorded 126 tackles and 7 interceptions for the Hokies. But he struggled off the field, issues that included a 2016 marijuana arrest, and was dismissed from the program last month due to academic issues.

He is the first Tech player picked in the supplemental draft since linebacker Mike Johnson went to the Cleveland Browns for a first-round selection in 1984.
