Mere minutes after Gil Santos and Tedy Bruschi were inducted into the New England Patriots Hall of Fame, current players took the field on day four of Patriots Training Camp.

Tedy Bruschi on Sean Lee

Monday, April 19th, 2010

Penn State linebacker Sean Lee isn’t a name that many fans have heard linked to the Patriots this spring, although one prominent former Patriot thinks it could happen. Tedy Bruschi stated on ESPN’s NFL Live that, “Sean Lee, a little bit, reminds me of myself, not the biggest, strongest or fastest . . . but he’s got the instincts. He finds the ball. And he knows how to play football. I like that kid.”

Sean Lee is a bit lighter than Bruschi, but has a bigger frame that could still fill out some. Both players have a nose for the ball and incredible leadership qualities. That said, 235 pounds is pretty small to be taking on guards in the Patriots 3-4 defense.

While we’re not buying the “Lee in the 1st Round” hype, Tedy Bruschi might be on to something. Lee’s 40 and 3-cone times were excellent, especially coming off an ACL injury. Any team can always use some more speed.
