BIOGRAPHY: All-Conference selection as a senior after totaling 55/4/10 during his first season as a full-time starter. Junior-year totals included 25/1/6 when he started four games.
POSITIVES: Developing cornerback whose draft stock has been steadily rising. Immediately picks up assignments, displays a good sense of timing, and quickly breaks to the throw. Aggressive, defends the run, and stays with the action. Possesses a burst of closing speed, effective in the underneath coverage, and works hard to defend the throw. Nicely locates the pass in the air and plays heads-up football.
NEGATIVES: Prefers to side-shuffle down the field, which hurts his ability to quickly get out of his plant. Does not show top-end playing speed and struggles staying downfield with receivers.
ANALYSIS: Lee exceeded expectations as a senior and his play last season positioned him as a solid middle-round choice. He answered many of the criticisms about his speed with a solid combine workout. Lee is a developmental prospect who could produce as a dime back early in his NFL career.
