16. LB Darron Lee — New York Jets (2016)
Darron Lee did a little bit of everything for the Buckeyes. A linebacker by trade, Lee racked up 146 tackles in two seasons as a starter, including 17 for a loss. He added three forced fumbles and three interceptions, along with 11 sacks and two fumble recoveries returned for a touchdown in 2014, the Buckeyes’ national championship season.
Lee was the second linebacker selected in the 2016 draft, taken 20th overall by the New York Jets. He took over a starting role by midseason and hasn’t looked back. Lee has 238 tackles in three seasons with the Jets, and in 2018 he intercepted three passes and returned one for a touchdown. He could be like a star in the making.
