2017 NFL Draft big board: Top 10 linebacker prospects
By Dan Dahlke

6. Elijah Lee, Kansas State (6-3, 228) — Film Grade: 78.0
Quick Take: Lee is a great athlete with good straight-line speed and ability in coverage. Against the run, he’ll make a living outside the tackle box making plays in pursuit. Lee’s size could be a concern for teams expecting him to stick his nose in the action and hold his own as an A-gap defender. Lee is best when he can drop and play in space. He’s a great fit as a nickel linebacker and third-down defender.
