Teddy Lehman LB Oklahoma
Ted is one of the fastest linebackers in this draft. He is a total team player.
He is excellent in the passing game. He has good size for his position and he
has leadership abilities. He is a good tackler in space.
Needs to Improve
He struggles a bit in the running game. Takes bad angles and runs himself out
of the plays.
Ted is playing out of position this year because of the injury to Lance Mitchell.
Ted is a pure OLB. He is not a MLB. He is one of the best OLB’s in the country.
In spite of this, he moved to the inside even though he knew it might hurt his
draft rating. He is a great tackler in space. I think Ted is a definite first
rounder. He reminds me a lot of Nick Barnett who was a shock pick in the 1st
round by the Packers. I do not believe that there is a better OLB in this
draft. I know when he starts to work out for teams and they go back to the film
of him as a junior, they will see what I see and rate this kid as a first
rounder. He will impact the first year on special teams. In the Rod Davis
profile, I made an error on my ratings of the LB’s in this draft. I rated Ted
as the second best LB in the draft. He is not. He is the third best on my
board. Rod Davis, Donta Thomas, Ted Lehman, Karlos Dansby. (That is until I
change my mind in another profile). Just kidding!
