Sean Lee Receives High Praise From Pro Football Focus

    The ' roster is packed full of superstars. That is a fact! Many of their players are respectively ranked at the top of their given positions or at least somewhere very close. Unfortunately, many of these “superstars” find themselves on the offensive side of the ball, with the lone exception being captain/ on .

    The sad truth is, the Cowboys' defense lacks the same kind of “superstars” on the defensive side of the ball. Sean Lee is without a doubt the only defensive player that can be considered caliber, although even he has been snubbed from that distinction more times than I would like to count.

    So, it was actually really refreshing to see Sean Lee receive such high praise from Pro (PFF) here recently, because he is definitely deserving of any and all praise he receives.


    I personally didn't find it all that surprising PFF had Sean Lee as the only other linebacker to rank in the top 10 in all three categories (overall, , and coverage) other than LB Luke Kuechly. Any Cowboys' fan who has ever watched Lee play would tell you the same.

    For some reason or another, Sean Lee has been undervalued around the NFL since entering the league as a rookie in 2010. A lot of that can probably be contributed to his inability to remain healthy, but when on the field, there is no doubt he is arguably one of the best LBs in the game.

    I don't know about you, but I found it really freshening that #50 is finally getting recognized for all of the work he puts in on the field and in the film room. Finally, someone is giving credit where credit is due. It's about time someone else recognizes Sean Lee's talent.

    PFF's praise of course won't go to his head. You can bet that he is going to outwork any other LB in the league, because his preparation week in and week out is second to none. That's just who is and why he is so great.

    Cowboys' fans need not worry. Sean Lee will continue to do what he does and the defense will be better for it. He could even benefit from a player like playing next to him, if he indeed lives up to his hype. Now, that's scary!

    Do you think Sean Lee is worthy of PFF's praise?

    I really hope Jaylon is able to play. Could be our best set of LBs in years.

    Brian Martin

    I think all Cowboys’ fans would agree with you.


    I literally have some ‘friends’ that feel last years draft was a disaster because we took Smith in the 2nd round. Doesnt matter when you tell them you got four starters out of it including your RB and QB of the future….

    Brian Martin

    The Cowboys had an excellent draft last year and if Jaylon Smith can return to form, it will be simply outstanding. Perhaps the best Cowboys draft ever.


    Not sure that we could ever compete with the Dirty Dozen (sheer numbers!) but this could come in a close second. We could end up with six starters out of one draft. RB, QB, MLB, CB, DT, DE… dang!!

    Bryson T

    Same. Lot of them like to hang on the bad as if you can’t have bad moves and good moves in one draft. It’s never all or nothing.


    Well deserved praise and long overdue!!

    Brian Martin

    I completely agree Charles.
