Draft Scout *Alvin Bailey News
04/29/13 - 2013 NFL DRAFT: TOP 10 UNDRAFTED UNDERCLASSMEN: 9. OG Alvin Bailey, Arkansas (6-3, 312, 4.95)...Bailey started every game of his collegiate career (38) with time at both left and right guard. He has intriguing size and power but is a limited athlete and very inconsistent, too easily abandoning his fundamentals as a blocker. At a position like guard, teams are less likely to take a chance on players with questions like Bailey. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
03/24/13 - 2013 Arkansas Pro Day: Arkansas hosted 29 NFL team representatives, including the Miami Dolphins quarterback coach and the Jacksonville Jaguars running back coach, on its pro day on Friday. Drills were run indoors on FieldTurf. Twenty-eight people participated in the pro day, 23 from Arkansas. Alvin Bailey, OL (6-3 3/8, 320) - Bailey ran a 4.69-second short-shuttle and 7.50-second three-cone drill. He looked good in his positional workouts. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
12/27/12 - Offensive guard Alvin Bailey has decided to forgo his final season at Arkansas and enter the 2013 NFL Draft. Bailey has signed with Morgan Advisory Group (MAG). Ryan Morgan, who is president of MAG, said Bailey’s paperwork was faxed to the NFL on Wednesday. The guard is training for pro day workouts in Arizona. “He’s a talented player who we think he can play in the NFL for a long time,” Morgan said. “The focus now has been to train the right way and get his body to where we want it to be. He’s a physical specimen.”
Bailey could not be reached for comment Wednesday. Neither could his father, Alvin Bailey, Sr., who told Hawgs Illustrated his son was ready to begin a pro football career. “The Bailey Family will always be Hogs, however, Alvin has decided to forego his redshirt senior season,” Bailey Sr. told Hawgs Illustrated. “We support his decision.” MAG also is representing Arkansas defensive end Tenarius Wright for the draft. Former Razorbacks Jarius Wright and Greg Childs, who were drafted in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft by the Minnesota Vikings, are other MAG clients.
Bailey, a Broken Arrow, Okla., native, started every game of his Arkansas career alongside center Travis Swanson. The two - who were members of the 2009 signing class and redshirted that season - logged 38 straight starts together. Bailey would’ve been one of the anchors of Arkansas’ offensive line under coach Bret Bielema if he returned to campus. But he became the second Arkansas junior to declare for the NFL Draft this month, joining running back Knile Davis. - Robbie Neiswanger, Arkansas News Bureau
08/15/12 - Top-five Arkansas prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 3. OG Alvin Bailey...One of the biggest (literally and figuratively) reasons for Arkansas' success on offense has been the stellar play of junior guard Alvin Bailey. Since redshirting in 2009, Bailey has started all 26 games of his career, earning SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week last season against New Mexico and earning second team honors from the conference coaches for the season, overall. While Bailey typically lines up at right guard, Arkansas frequently switches their linemen for strongside and weakside responsibilities so Bailey has experience on the left side, as well. A naturally massive man, Bailey shows impressive quickness off the snap and can knock defenders off the ball in the running game. He's athletic enough to handle blocking on the move - a requirement in an Arkansas scheme that often requires the guards to pull and block at the second level. While quick enough to get out in space, Bailey struggles to re-direct if the defenders sees him coming and often is forced to lunge at his opponent, resulting in some impressive knock-down blocks but also an occasional miss. The talent and poise of skill position players around him has helped Bailey in pass protection as he has a tendency to stop moving his feet and attempt to control his opponent with just his size and strength. For a big man, however, Bailey shows the ability to block low enough to anchor. He still needs to refine his game but could earn top 100 consideration in either the 2013 or 2014 draft should he continue to develop. - Rob Rang, The Sports Xchange
07/21/12 - 2012 PRESEASON ALL-SEC SECOND TEAM (MEDIA): OL Alvin Bailey (38), Arkansas, Jr.,...was named an All-American by Pro Football Weekly and a second-team All-SEC performer in 2011, when he started all 13 games as part of an offensive line that allowed the offense to break 16 game or season school records. The junior from Broken Arrow, Okla., has started all 26 games of his Razorback career and blocked consecutive seasons with a 3,000-yard passer, including the first season in school history with a 3,000-yard passer and a 1,000-yard rusher in 2010. Arkansas led the SEC in total offense, passing offense and scoring offense to become just the fifth different school, and first since 2001, to lead the conference in all three categories in a single season and became the sixth team in conference history, and second since 1992, to lead the SEC in passing offense for three straight seasons. The Razorbacks ranked 13th in the country with their average of 300.7 passing yards per game, 15th in the nation with an average of 36.8 points per game and 29th in the NCAA with an average of 438.1 yards of total offense per game. - Arkansas football
