Kansas State linebacker Elijah Lee left college early, and it is starting to pay off dividends. Lee led the Wildcats with 110 tackles as a junior, including 6 1/2 for loss, earning a spot on the all-Big 12 team. Lee projects as a middle or late round hopeful in the NFL Draft.
Lee had a successful pro day, measuring in at 6025 and 229 pounds, Lee completed 18 reps on the bench, touched 38 inches in the vertical jump and reached 10-foot-2 in the broad jump. His 40 time clocked 4.65s, the short shuttle came in at 4.27s and his three-cone was 6.91s.
After the workout, Lee spent extensive time with the Miami Dolphins and Minnesota Vikings as well as the Arizona Cardinals. Lee has an official predraft visit on his schedule with the Minnesota Vikings and a workout with the Detroit Lions.
Lee is now gaining more interest. He has a private workout with the Arizona Cardinals and will also take a pre-draft visit with the 49ers.
