After many believed he performed poorly during Senior Bowl practices, Alabama S Robert Lester reportedly "told a number of people" that he is spent from a long 2012 season.
The info comes by way of draft insider Tony Pauline. For one, this doesn't bode well for Lester possibly breaking through the notorious "rookie wall" during his first year in the NFL. Also, Lester was always more of a name than star player, but he should be selected in the later parts of the third day. Wed, Feb 6, 2013 08:44:00 AM

Alabama S Robert Lester "struggled throughout the week" at Senior Bowl practices, and there are reportedly concerns inside the NFL that he may project as no better than a backup pro safety.

Lester played "high" in Mobile with a "choppy backpedal," struggling to change directions. The worry is that Lester can't play the pass. Lester's box score stats impress with 14 career interceptions, but they're not indicative of his on-field coverage skills. He has more work to do in the pre-draft phase.

Alabama S Robert Lester will attend the Senior Bowl.

Lester is one of the bigger name prospects at the safety position, but too often we are left scratching out heads after watching him player. He needs to play with more consistency rather than his poor positioning being taken advantage of. Still, Alabama prospects have a long history of success in the NFL, so Lester could show well down in Mobile.

Alabama senior S Robert Lester will play Saturday against Mississippi despite hurting his ankle last weekend against Tennessee.

Lester was actually sidelined for a large portion of the game but practiced all week and looks like a safe bet to play. The Bulldogs quarterback, Tyler Russell, has surprised many with his poise and throwing ability, so Lester will be needed against the highly ranked Mississippi State team.
