11/13/12 - 11/12/12 NFL DRAFT SCOUT FALLER: SS ROBERT LESTER, ALABAMA...It was a forgettable game for the home team last Saturday in Tuscaloosa as the Crimson Tide defense gave up 29 points against Texas A&M, the first time they allowed four touchdowns in a game since 2010. Alabama had a tough time limiting freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel, but it was a particularly frustrating performance from Tide strong safety Robert Lester. While he has the awareness and quickness to drive on plays in front of him, he missed too many open-field opportunities and left production on the field. Lester took inconsistent angles in both run and pass defense and scouts have questioned his finishing ability as a tackler. He has 13 interceptions over his career, including three this season, but the mistakes have out-weighed the impact plays so far this season. Over the past two years, Lester really benefited playing alongside Mark Barron in the secondary, but he hasnít been as consistent as a senior and his draft stock is slipping. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
