Sean Lee, OLB, Penn State

Sean Lee is one the most talented linebackers in the country. The only downside is Lee's inability to stay healthy the past few seasons. Lee was a huge surprise for the Nittany Lions as a sophomore when he earned a starting job at outside linebacker. He finished that season with 89 tackles, 8 tackles for loss, 5.5 sacks, and an interception. He improved upon those numbers as a junior, when he recorded 138 tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks, broke up 9 passes, and forced 3 fumbles. Unfortunately, he missed all of last season with an ACL tear that kept him out until spring practice. Lee moved to inside linebacker for his senior year, and has played very well when he's been on the field. He finished the season with 86 tackles, 11 tackles for loss, and 2 sacks, in just 10 games. Despite all his talents, teams will be scared by the fact that he missed three games this season with a sprained knee. Lee can play all three linebacker positions in the 4-3 defense, and still has the speed to cover sideline to sideline despite those injuries. Sean Lee's draft status will depend heavily on what combine doctors have to say about his injuries. Depending on his post season performance, Lee could sneak into the bottom of round two, but is most likely a third round pick. Sean Lee has played like a first rounder his whole career, but injuries have hurt his stock tremendously. He has had a solid offseason, and looked good during combine drills. He improved his 40 yard dash time from 4.72 seconds at the combine to 4.6 seconds at his pro day. The inside linebacker class is thin, which should help him to stay in the mid third to early fourth round range.
