Biography: All-Conference selection as a senior after posting career-best numbers and leading Oklahoma State in tackles with 133/9/2.5. Redshirted in 2009 after he had 90 tackles in 2008.
Positives: "Forceful run-defending linebacker who is best in the box. Displays a good head for the ball, remains disciplined with assignments, and chases the action hard. Stout at the point, wraps up tackling, and can be an intimidating force in the middle. Effectively uses his hands to shed blocks. Takes proper angles to the action. Has adequate skill in zone coverage when he's not asked to move laterally."
Negatives: Plays stiff at times. Lacks top speed to the sidelines. Possesses a marginal burst and is ineffective in pursuit.
Analysis: Lemon stepped up his game as a senior and overcame limited athleticism with his competitive style. He's a solid two-down defender who could be a backup on the inside of a 3-4 defense.
