Meet Alexus Atchley — Girlfriend of Washington DT Vita Vea

Washington defensive tackle Vita Vea is a surefire first-round pick in Thursday’s NFL Draft. It doesn’t matter what mock draft you look, you’ll find Vita’s name somewhere in the first…

Walter Football: No. 17 (Chargers)
ESPN’s Mel Kiper and Todd McShay: No. 17 (Chargers)
BR: No. 13 (Redskins)
SI: No. 11 (Dolphins)

Vita recorded 99 tackles and 9.5 sacks in three seasons at Washington — his scouting report from NFL.com:

Vea’s tape can frustrating because he flashes star potential one series and then looks average the next. With that said, he’s still very raw and should be judged by his ability rather than just his results as he should unlock his potential with more coaching. Vea has the size and power to play nose in an odd or even front and he could be targeted by 3-4 teams looking for dominant run defender on the end. He should work into a defensive line rotation immediately and has the ability to become a good NFL starter for years.

And because Vita will be one of the 22 players attending the draft, allow us to introduce you to his girlfriend, Alexus Atchley. She played three seasons of basketball at Washington and is now a graduate student manager for Arizona’s women’s basketball team.
