Darron Lee, OLB, Ohio State

Lee isn’t very big at 6-foot-1, 235 pounds, but he is multi-talented as a pass rusher, tackler in space, as well as a coverage linebacker who can blanket  big receivers and tight ends.  He is perfect for the weakside in New Orleans, where question marks surround the often injured Dannell Ellerbe.

If the Saints are indeed looking to address the weakside (perhaps the team’s biggest need) in the first round and Myles Jack doesn’t fall, then Darron Lee would be an excellent choice.  He has championship experience under a coach who has produced great NFL talent.
