Former Utah State safety Mo Alexander has had quite a journey to the NFL, and it seems fitting that the St. Louis Rams were the team that decided to bring him in with their fourth-round pick (No. 110 overall).

Alexander made a big impact at Utah State this past season (nine tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks and an interception), but it looked incredibly unlikely that he'd make it to the NFL back in 2012 after he was dismissed from the team and ordered to serve a year in jail after punching a teammate in the face at a party (h/t Deseret News).

After being kicked off the football team, Alexander spent part of his time as a janitor at the Edward Jones Dome—the Rams' stadium—before being reinstated by the Utah State football team in 2013.

It's clear that Alexander has made the most of his second chance, as he'll now be playing at the Edward Jones Dome instead of helping clean it up.
