Scouting Report
Although he had a significant drop in production in his final season at Southern California, Lee will likely be one of the first receivers taken. He topped 1,000 yards in each of his first two campaigns with the Trojans, and his 1,721 in 2012 were the second-most in FBS. Lee set another of his 24 school marks with 118 receptions that season - 14 for touchdowns - while finishing fourth in the Heisman voting and becoming USC's first Biletnikoff Award winner. He had 73 catches for 1,143 yards and 11 TDs as a freshman. Before leaving for the NFL, Lee finished with 791 yards and four TDs on 57 receptions in his junior season while missing three games because of knee and shin injuries. Despite his subpar 2013, Lee will likely know his future NFL home before the end of the first round due to his bevy of desirable skills. He's considered highly athletic and a polished route runner who also clocked an adequate 4.52 in the 40-yard dash at the combine. He has also shown strong hands and a willingness to go over the middle of the field without fear. Lee, though, could use a little more bulk to help him against NFL defensive backs, to aid in his blocking and to avoid more nagging injuries. He also had to deal with a bone bruise in his right shoulder before this past season. Lee has reportedly overcome much more already in his life. He grew up with two brothers involved in gangs in Inglewood, Calif., and both helped keep him out of that life. Terreal Reid was murdered in August 2006, and Donte Reid is currently in prison. While in high school, Lee moved from a foster home into a friend's house and transferred to the private Junipero Serra in Gardena, Calif., where he earned multiple all-American honors. Lee is proficient in American Sign Language because both of his parents are deaf. Lee was also a sprinter and long jumper on the Trojans' track team, finishing 17th at the 2012 NCAA championships in the long jump.
