Even though Sean has bounced back from major knee surgery, this will be a concern for most NFL clubs. He has a good frame and natural strength to take on blockers. He is a solid tackler but not explosive on contact. Sean has decent range in pursuit but wins with effort, instincts and techniques more than athleticism. He can be effective as a zone pass defender but may be a liability in man coverage schemes. He uses his hand well to shed blockers and work thru trash. Sean is a very productive player that elevated his draft status with his consistent play.



Lee is strongly built with a good frame. Reads quickly, fills fast, and takes quality angles. Displays good balance and uses proper hand technique to shed blockers. Prepares well and consistently displays good instincts and a high football intelligence, which helps him recognize screens and draws.


Does not have the smoothest hips and struggles to maintain speed in transitions. Lacks burst to stick in man coverage and limited top-end speed prevents him from being a sideline-to-sideline player. Not an explosive hitter that struggles to land good shots. Missed the 2008 season due to a torn ACL.
