Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Combines excellent power with initial quickness, but one of his best attributes are his violent hands, which Lewis uses with impressive precision.
  • Aggressive with good awareness to track the ball and attack. Tenacious, tough, competItIve and versatile.
  • He’s very instinctive when it comes to countering and solid with overall hand usage.
  • With a powerful lower body and the ability to hold up at the point of attack as a run defender, he is remarkably instinctive.
  • Lewis has an excellent feel for working off blockers and knowing how and when to counter as the play goes on.
  • Flashes nimble feet to chase running backs and mobile quarterbacks to the sideline when lined up at end. Spins off blocks to get back into the play.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • He’s a bit of a tweener, too undersized and underpowered at the point of attack to hold up against the run with his hand in the dirt.
  • Plays high and with poor balance and power. He’ll lose ground at the point of attack, and Lewis doesn’t get the full benefit of his length.
  • Stands up well against the run but is very pursuit-conscious and will take unneeded wide angles.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
