Lenon is coming off his best year as a pro, leading the Lions in tackles with 121. He is a good combination of size, strength and athleticism. He runs well and shows range inside out to the ball. He has the speed and burst to stay active to the ball. He uses his hands well to separate well or work through trash to get to the pile. He is a solid tackler, but can be inconsistent to wrap up in the open field. He is a quick reactor as the play unfolds and fast flows beyond the ball at times. Lenon is an instinctive defender who understands blocking schemes and how to leverage the play, but will lose sight of the ball at times. He has a good feel for route progressions as a pass-defender, but doesn't make many plays on the ball. He has a good feel to time his blitzes up, when attacking the line of scrimmage, but needs to develop additional moves to be more effective in this area. Lenon is a good player who been durable, intelligent and productive.
