PER Northwestern State's official website.
2010: Had 33 tackles, 22 of those solos... played in all 11 games with four starts... one pass interception and returned for 15 yards... led the team with 12 pass break ups... also had a quarterback hurry and recovered a fumble... posted a season-high seven stops against McNeese State... interception was against Southeastern Louisiana.
2009: Played in nine games and collected 23 tackles… four tackles against Houston…gathered five tackles at Baylor… and three tackles each versus Central Arkansas and McNeese... also returned one kick for 13 yards.
Per ESPN Draft Tracker
Lane has the fluidity and speed to develop into an above-average cover corner. But he has to get bigger and stronger while adjusting to a much higher level of competition.
