Bio: 
Three-year starter who earned Second Team All-ACC honors in 2016 after recording 105 tackles and 7.5 sacks and ranking fifth in the ACC with 20 tackles for loss. Finished fourth on the team with 71 tackles, including 10 for loss, and notched three sacks in 2015. Racked up 101 tackles (12 for loss) with four sacks as a sophomore in 2014.
Pos: 
Explosive linebacker who is a legitimate three-down defender. Quick up the field defending the run, shoots the gaps and works to get involved in the play. Moves well laterally, gets depth on pass drops and shows a good head for the ball. Remains disciplined with assignments and makes a lot of plays behind the line of scrimmage.
Neg: 
Slow shedding blocks. Has ball carriers slipping through his arms. Inefficient and takes extra steps to the action.
Analysis: 
Lee must refine his game but has the size, speed and skill to develop into a starter at the next level.
