Mehta’s Top 20 Jets Countdown: No. 15 Darron Lee – Is third season the charm for key inside linebacker?

Lee played with more confidence and aggressiveness after an underwhelming rookie campaign that included missing three games with a nagging ankle injury. He looked lost in a Week 2 blowout in Oakland before bouncing back with flashes of solid play. The former first-round pick played faster in his second season inside the box. He gained a better understanding of his pre-snap reads in 2017 after being too tentative in his transition from playing in the slot at Ohio State. His improvement was undeniable, but he still has a long way to go. Lee’s 7.1 run-stop percentage (30 stops across 420 run snaps) was tied for 41st among 53 qualified inside linebackers, according to Pro Football Focus. His 10 total pressures across 55 pass rush snaps resulted in a pass-rush productivity mark that ranked 22nd out of 52, per PFF.
