Penn State LB Sean Lee: A Case in Value
In our last post, we warned you to be leery of the Cowboys selecting either a free safety or offensive linemen in the second round. Our exact words: “You would think free safety and offensive line are the primary focuses right now, but don’t rule out another ‘value pick’ if a top-rated player drops.”
Now while we personally disagree with the Cowboys’ scouting of Penn State linebacker Sean Lee as “top-rated,” it is obvious they placed great value upon him. The team yielded their second and fourth-rounders this year to a divisional rival in order to move up just four selections to draft him. In comparison, Dallas simply slid back from the third round to the fourth after a move up the same number of spots in the first round.
Our feelings on Lee’s game are irrelevant now–he is a Dallas Cowboys and we will embrace him as such. We will have more on Lee tomorrow.
