Patrick Lee, CB, Auburn

A knee injury slowed Lee's development his junior season. He started four games and totaled 25 tackles with six pass deflections. He then made the most of becoming a full-time starter his senior season. He totaled 55 tackles -- 40 solo -- with four interceptions, 10 pass breakups, one tackle for loss and one forced fumble. His work earned him second-team All-Southeastern Conference honors from The Associated Press. Lee has a great build and has the speed -- 4.42 in the 40-yard dash -- to go with good strength. He capitalizes on his size by being very physical. His statistics make it clear he knows how to get to the ball. He moves his hips well and he has the physical tools all NFL teams are looking for in a corner. Having started just one season, most scouts believe his upside is huge. That potential upside is also a concern, with his experience so limited. He doesn't have great hands and some scouts would have liked to see him do more against the run. He needs experience in multiple coverages and that may cause it to take longer for him to grasp several pro schemes. Some teams may be concerned about his past injury history but that shouldn't be a huge concern. At worst, Lee figures to be a standout on special teams. But he may become a top-notch corner. That potential will likely have him off the draft board by the end of the third round.
