Lemon Still High on Draft Boards Heading into Combine

The former Arundel High and Syracuse wide receiver has been working to improve his 40-yard dash time.

Arundel High graduate Alec Lemon will show off his athletic skills this week when the NFL Combine begins in Indianapolis.

Lemon, who followed his Arundel career with a solid four years at Syracuse, is considered one of the top wide receivers looking to be selected in the NFL Draft. 

SBNation lists Lemon as the 24th-best wide receiver in the class, while other draft projections offer a similar assessment. There were 33 wideouts drafted last season, suggesting that he could be a late-round pick. 

The NFL Combine assesses players' athletic abilities through a series of tests including a 40-yard dash, bench press, shuttle run, broad jump, high jump and 3-cone drill. 

The Post-Standard in Syracuse said Lemon has been preparing in Tempe, AZ for the combine, and has been working to improve his 40-yard dash time. 

NFL.com gave Lemon a score of 54 on 100-point scale, suggesting he'll be drafted between the 4th and 7th round. 

The NFL Combine will take place Feb. 23-26 and will be televised on the NFL Network.
