Overview:

Lee had a very productive career at Kansas State, where he played in 39 career games, while having 209 tackles, 18.5 for loss, and 11.0 sacks. He has good size, he is a hard hitter, he is solid in coverage, he gets good pressure on the quarterback, and he is a good pass rusher. He is also a defensive play maker, a run stuffer, and he is very experienced. He does not have elite speed but that does not hurt his game. With that said, I view Lee as a day 3 pick, somewhere in the 5th-6th round range.
