Overview:

Lee had a great career at Wake Forest, where he played in 48 games, had 291 tackles, a whopping 42.0 for loss, and 14.5 sacks. He has good size, good speed, is a good pass rusher, he gets good pressure on the quarterback, and is a hard hitter. He is also a defensive play maker, and a tough nosed player. On the other hand, he does whiff on some tackle attempts, and he over pursues at times. With that said, I see Lee as a day 3 pick, likely in the mid round range.
