Corey is a very good 3rd round value pick. Coming into the season he was a potential 1st round pick but had a good not great year. He has elite burst off the line and is very good at using his skill set to the max. He is not a physical freak but he gets the job done. He is very good against right tackle because of his first step and knows how to use his hands to knock back and shed lineman or tight ends in the run game. He needs to work on timing the snap of the ball a little better. Sometimes he is also stiff in the hips and can not bend on the edge to get to the quarterback.
NFL Comparison: Nick Perry
2012 Stats (played through injury) : 34 tackles, 5.5 sacks, a forced fumble and a blocked kick
Against the top O line in the nation:Corey Lemonier*, DE/OLB, Auburn
Height: 6-4. Weight: 246.
Projected 40 Time: 4.60.
Projected Round (2013): 2-3.
2/1/13: Lemonier totaled 34 tackles, 5.5 sacks, a forced fumble and a blocked kick. He played through an ankle injury. Lemonier needs to continue to fill out his frame and add strength for the NFL.
8/27/12: Lemonier broke out as a sophomore with 47 tackles, 13.5 tackles for a loss, 9.5 sacks and five forced fumbles in 2011. He is a speed-rusher who is a superb athlete and rushes with nice leverage.
Lemonier should gain weight for the NFL because he gets pushed around at times in the ground game. He could return for the 2013 college season, and that may be a good idea. Lemonier is raw; he could use more experience to develop his awareness, run defense, pass-rushing moves and strength.
