Corey Lemonier: Video Highlights for Former Auburn DE
Don McPeak-USA TODAY Sports

Former Auburn defensive end Corey Lemonier currently projects as a third-round pick, according to NFLDraftScout.com

The 6’3”, 255-pound junior played in every game for the Tigers as a true freshman before taking the SEC by storm as a sophomore in 2011.  During that season he notched 9.5 sacks and forced five fumbles en route to first-team all-conference honors.  Over his career at Auburn, Lemonier totaled 98 tackles (24 for loss), 17 sacks, seven forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.

He played mostly with his hand on the ground as a 4-3 defensive end while at Auburn, but he may need to transition to a 3-4 outside linebacker in the NFL due to his slight build.  Many scouts question whether he has enough fluidity in his hips to hold up in coverage, but after running a 4.60 40-yard dash at the combine, it’s clear Lemonier at least has the pure speed to make an impact off the edge.

Here are some of the highlight-reel plays produced by the NFL hopeful.
