Senior Bowl Exec Thinks Nebraska's Tanner Lee Will Be A "Top NFL Prospect"

One Senior Bowl executive is very high on Tanner Lee.

Tanner Lee had to sit out a year after transferring from Tulane to Nebraska, but according to one Senior Bowl executive, he doesn't appear to have lost any of his skills.

Phil Savage, a Senior Bowl executive, believes that Lee, who has yet to make his Nebraska debut after starting two years for Tulane, will be a "top NFL prospect" in either 2018 or 2019. That's high praise.

Check it out:

For the record, Lee is 6-foot-4, 220 pounds - good size for a potential pro signal-caller.

Lee had solid seasons for the Green Wave in both 2014 and 2015 - but it's fair to say that he'll be judged far more on how he performs against Big Ten competition the next two years.
