Soaking It Up: LB Jaylon Smith Finds A Mentor In Sean Lee

Despite missing the entirety of his rookie season, second year enters 2017 with an incredible amount of hype surrounding him.

Due to his severe knee which resulted in “drop foot” nerve damage, it would be totally reasonable to expect Smith to be behind the rest of the linebacker crew. Still, given his immense talent, he is the favorite to start at MIKE linebacker this season.

Luckily for Jaylon Smith, he will be playing right next to an All-Pro caliber veteran in who can help him along. And, it appears Smith is more than willing to accept Lee as his mentor.

On Thursday night, Jaylon Smith tweeted out this image of him and Sean Lee speaking during their latest practice at . Captioning the photo “Be a sponge!” Smith acknowledged that in order to be his best football playing self, he must seek out from Lee.

For us , we have to happy to see Jaylon Smith not only on the field actually playing, but also following the lead of one this league's great linebackers.

Images like these only make me more excited to see what this new-looked in Dallas will look like come September 10th and beyond.
