Overview:

Lee finished his career at Nebraska, where he played in 31 career games, completed 574 passes, for 6744 passing yards, has 46 passing touchdowns, 37 interceptions, and a completion percentage of 55.2. He has great size, he has a strong arm, and has good accuracy. He also fits the ball into tight places with ease, he has a good deep ball, and is a tough nosed player. He also has good patience in the pocket, and allows his receivers to get open, he is very poised in the pocket, and has good pocket awareness. He does not rush the ball out too quickly, he does not stare down one receiver, and he distributes the ball to all of his receivers, and backs. He also gets the ball out quickly when needed, and does a good job of avoiding pressure while in the pocket. On the other hand, he is not known as a running quarterback, he throws way too many interceptions, and he overthrows, and underthrows his receivers. With that said, I see Lee as a late round pick at best, but more than likely he goes undrafted when it is all said and done.
