2013 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Robert Lester, SS, Alabama

Lester was outstanding for the BCS National Championship-bound Crimson Tide during the regular season. The safety made 36 tackles with two interceptions (returned for 30 yards), blocked one kick, and had a forced fumble. Lester redshirted in 2008, played sparingly in 2009, and he has been a full-time starter ever since. As a sophomore he had 52 tackles to go along with an incredible eight interceptions.

The Foley, AL native has good size at 6'2 and 210 pounds. He generally runs in the 4.5s of the 40-yard dash and has been clocked as fast as 4.46 from that distance. Lester is an above-average cover safety with a great knack for the ball and an ability to cause turnovers. He can also make plays with the football in hands after an interception or fumble. He needs to improve his tackling fundamentals and he often overplays the pass, so he can sometimes get beat deep down the field. A smart player and a good athlete, Lester could find himself off the board in round two if he leaves early for the 2012 NFL Draft.
