BIOGRAPHY: Florida State transfer awarded all-Conference honors the only two seasons he played with Tennessee State. Dismissed from the Seminole program in 2005 after a violation of team rules.

POSITIVES: Effective as a tackle in college, Lewis has the body type and playing style that dictate a move to guard at the next level. He has athletic limitations, yet he can be effective in a system that reduces his area responsibilities at the next level.

NEGATIVES: Played left tackle in college, yet he lacks footwork sliding out to protect the edge and not light on his feet. Ineffective blocking in motion. Does too much arm wrestling and not enough leverage blocking.

ANALYSIS: Wide-bodied blocker best in confined quarters. Powerful at the point, and easily turns defenders off the line or engulfs them once engaged in a block. Shuns defenders with a violent punch of his hands, and easily pushes them from their angle of attack. Picks up stunts or twists, stays square, and keeps defenders in front of him. Gets movement run blocking and shows great strength in his upper body.

PROJECTION: 5-6
