Athletic and underrated pursuit linebacker with three-down potential. Fast moving in every direction, displays excellent range and quickly gets out to the sidelines to make plays in space. Instinctive, displays a good head for the ball and possesses a closing burst. Immediately changes direction, displays good recognition in coverage and gets depth on pass drops. Forceful up the field on the blitz and wraps up tackling.
Lacks strength at the point and is easily taken from the play by blocks. Does a lot of face-guarding and struggles locating the ball in coverage. Not a stout tackler.
Lee is a quick, fast pursuit linebacker who makes plays sideline-to-sideline and shows ability in coverage when facing the action. He’s a prototypical weak side linebacker who could eventually break into a starting lineup on Sundays once he gets bigger and improves his ball skills.
