Tanner Lee’s Nebraska Teammates React to NFL Decision

December 28, 2017

There might not be a better way to gauge how Tanner Lee's teammates felt about him than their reactions to his announcement that he will declare for the draft.

Lee announced his decision to leave Nebraska on Thursday, and his Husker teammates responded with overwhelming support.

Remember, Lee was named a team captain and a team representative to Big Ten Media Days before even taking a snap in a Nebraska uniform.

"His entry has been impressive just in the simple fact that he became a good teammate, became immediately well-liked and, through time, became very well-respected," then head coach Mike Riley said back in July. "He entered in not really a dramatic fashion. (He) just became one of the guys."
