Reports: Knee issue could be affecting Marqise Lee’s draft stock


A wide receiver regarded as one of the better players left on the board after one round reportedly could be having his draft stock hurt by concerns over a potential knee issue.

Tony Pauline of reported Friday that USC’s Marqise Lee fell in the draft “due to red flags on his injured knee.” Similarly, Bleacher Report’s Will Carroll reported that “several teams” were “scared” about Lee’s knee. Carroll also quoted an unnamed source who seemed to indicate there could be even more widespread concern about the knee.

Neither report specified the knee that had teams reportedly worried, but Lee did suffer a left knee injury in 2013 while at Southern Cal. According to multiple reports, Lee had a Grade 2 left MCL sprain.

According to Jene Bramel of, Lee had a knee examination at the Combine that went well.

    Sounds like some team wants him to fall just a little bit farther.

    Wait a second – the draft already started???

    I thought Goodell had pushed it back to 2015

    The Browns just took a tackle after all of this. Might be a big red flag on his knee.

    Nice pick by the Jags at 39.

    I thought the raiders should have taken lee instead of Carr but I didn’t know about this knee issue. Now I’m glad they took Carr
