    Perfect example of a tremendous talent at running back in high school moved to linebacker in college, rushed for 1250 yards 16 tds and averaged 6.1 yards a carry as a senior inhigh school. Best athlete in 2004 nfl draft 4.48 40 440lbs bench press and he slipped to the 2nd round of the draft what a joke. If he plays well the last two weeks should have a chance for rookie of the year statistically he is very comparable to sean taylor. Wouldn't that be nice to have two whites win rookie of the year lehman and rothlesberger.

    Lehman has been outstanding. Last Sunday he had a great game. All the color guy could do was rant about how Lehman needs to get "stronger" in the offseason because he can't handle the big offensive lineman. He said this after Lehman sacked Culpepper.

    He did 26 225 reps at the combine thats more then D.J. Williams (22) vilma {23} Dansby [15] who were all drafted ahead of him. Thats the problem the stupid anouncers do not know the facts and just because he is white assume he is to weak or slow for the nfl, when in actuality he is oneof the best athletes in the nfl.

    Lehman had 13 tackles on sunday ended the season with 98, 1 sack, 1 int, and 1 ff. Not bad for a rookie learning the middle lb spot, should be starting middle lb next year and will put up numbers similar to urlacher and morgan. Should also be considered for def rookie of the year but it will probably be given to sean taylor because he was a higher draft pick and he is black. He had 76 tackles 1 sack and 4 ints.

    Lehman is a freak of nature. Missed a bunch of games in 2006 with an injury. Hope to see him back next year for another 120+ tackle season.
