2016 Mock Drafts: Darron Lee To The Redskins?

Posted Mar 3, 2016

After getting a chance to see all of the prospects at the 2016 NFL Draft, NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah now believes the Redskins will take Ohio State linebacker Darron Lee with the 21st pick.

After getting a chance to see all of the prospects at the 2016 NFL Draft, NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah now believes the Redskins will take Ohio State linebacker Darron Lee with the 21st pick.

Any player taken in the first round of the NFL Draft would ideally be an immediate contributor to the team that selects him.

For the Redskins in the 2016 NFL Draft, that may be the case with Ohio State linebacker Darron Lee.

In his first mock draft after the conclusion of the NFL Combine, NFL.com’s Daniel Jeremiah thinks the Redskins will select Lee with the No. 21 pick.

The result could be a brand new face in the starting lineup come the start of the season.

“Lee has the speed, instincts and play-making ability to be a difference maker from Day 1,” Jeremiah writes.

Lee was active for only two seasons for the Buckeyes, but he was one of the team’s most productive players on a roster littered with NFL talent.

Starting all 28 games in which he appeared, Lee amassed 147 tackles (27.5 for loss) along with 12 sacks, four fumbles forced and three interceptions.

The New Albany, Ohio, native was selected as an Associated Press second-team All-American for his efforts during the 2015 season, as he totaled 66 tackles (11 for loss) along with 4.5.

Two of those sacks came in Ohio State’s Fiesta Bowl victory over Notre Dame on New Year’s Day.

Lee also earned a freshman All-American nod in 2014, as he totaled 81 tackles with two interceptions and two fumbles forced.

In the Sugar Bowl that season, the 6-foot-2, 228 pounder earned Defensive MVP honors as he recorded seven solo tackles with two sacks against then-No.1 Alabama.

According to his NFL.com draft profile, Lee is “quick to diagnose and flow to the ball” and he “has unusual ability to find the most efficient routes to the ball.”

“Has athleticism and flexibility to contort his body and succeed through difficult tackle angles. Plays with loose hips, quick feet and desired agility of an NFL weak-side linebacker. Former high school quarterback with the change of direction and speed to be a rangy playmaker. Comfortable in space and excels there. Has plus man cover talent. Willing to stand in and take on blockers with a leveraged strike if his gap is being threatened. Capable gap blitzer with ability to get skinny through the holes,” his profile states.

NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein believes Lee is similar to current Tennessee Titans linebacker Zach Brown.

In four seasons, Brown has collected 261 tackles with 13 passes defensed, 10 sacks, six interceptions and two fumbles forced.
