Biography: Four-year starter awarded All-Conference honors since his sophomore season. Led Troy State in tackles the past three seasons, posting a career-best 143/19/4 as a senior after 126/9.5/4.5 as a junior. Sophomore totals included 82 tackles.
Positives: Smallish, chase-and-run-down linebacker best in pursuit. Breaks down well, plays with a great amount of quickness and immediately alters his angle of attack to chase the action. Makes plays sideline to sideline, fast to the flanks, and nicely redirects to ball-carriers. Effectively uses his hands to protect himself.
Negatives: Does not consistently take proper angles to the action and is inefficient. Late reacting in coverage and better making plays moving forward than in reverse.
Analysis: Lee has been a tackling machine for Troy State and one of the more productive linebackers in college football the past three seasons. Physically, he looks like an outside linebacker, yet he must improve his play in coverage to be anything other than a backup at the next level.
