Lemonier is able to beat tackles with his speed upfield and in pursuit, showing the vision and agility to weave through the trash. While possessing some exciting traits, he has some flaws with some stiffness in his upper body, lacking the functional strength or lateral agility to beat blockers once engaged. Although he struggles to shed blocks, even by tight ends and running backs, Lemonier shows excellent effort and the NFL is always looking for talented pass rushers with upside.
Weaknesses: Still developing his run awareness and technique. Needs to improve his discipline in space and better understand his surroundings. Too often overpursues off the snap and can be overaggressive, taking himself out of plays. Inconsistent snap anticipation and needs to cut down on the offsides penalties. Will get hung up on blocks and hand use in the trenches still a work in progress. Needs to consistently finish once he gets his hands on the ballcarrier. Disappointing second half of 2012 and played down to the level of the rest of the team.
