NFL draft analysts have made a big issue about Ohio State LB Darron Lee’s weight knowing he committed to the Buckeyes out of high school as a safety, only to play linebacker once he got to Columbus. Some analysts had his weight as low as 219 pounds, which would be a concern for NFL talent evaluators. But Lee had a solid weigh in at the NFL Combine.
“Today I weighed in at 232,” said Lee. “I’m not too worried about that. I usually play at 235. I didn’t have a big breakfast today.”
Lee said his ideal playing weight is between 235 and 238 pounds.
“I should be fine there,” he said. “I can carry it around and I’ve trained with it.”
Lee was a big time playmaker for the Buckeyes, and with the expectation of him running a fast time, Lee figures to be a late first-round pick.
“He’s going to run in the 4.4s and everyone will get excited about him,” said NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock. “He’s more of a 20-32 (late first round) guy for me and will go in the first round.”
