Pat Lee: Leaping cars in a single bound!

JS Online: Lee's ready for another big jump: "Dared by a crowd that had to see it to believe it, Lee neared a Volkswagen Beetle with a low, deliberate four-step approach, then sprung off one planted foot - jumping from the driver's side of the car to the passenger's side.
Lee didn't just clear the hood. He cleared the entire car, leaving even his coach wowed by the sight.
'This kid could jump out of the building,' said Merritt. 'He has springs.'
In the Green Bay Packers' rookie orientation camp, which concludes today, there was no knowing how fast the 24-year-old Lee would jump ahead other defensive backs on the depth chart to develop into a nickel or starting cornerback for the Packers. In his very first practice Friday, Lee moved effortlessly through drills and at least on first impression looked the part of an NFL-sized cornerback. He'll certainly face much tougher tests in the coming months.
But this can be said about Lee for sure: In five years at Auburn in the tough Southeastern Conference, Lee endured a variety of experiences and persevered. And besides being athletic, Lee is gifted with a 6-foot, 200-pound frame ideal to play the kind of bump-and-run defense the Packers use so well"
