BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter who totaled 35/4/9 as a senior after 15/3/2 the prior season when he struggled with a knee injury.

POSITIVES: "Nice-sized cornerback who displayed a lot of improvement in his game over the past two seasons. Fluid pedaling in reverse, quick flipping his hips in transition, and does a nice job positioning himself against opponents in man coverage. Runs downfield with receivers, shows a burst to the action and good hands for the interception. Fights with receivers throughout the action, and rarely challenged by opposing quarterbacks."

NEGATIVES: "Despite his size, does not present himself as a strong or sturdy cornerback. Gives a large number of underneath receptions. Shows hesitation to his game."

ANALYSIS: "Lewis possesses the size, speed, and skill to develop into a starter at the next level. He must be quicker thinking on his feet, and start to play to his size on an every- down basis to be anything other than a nickel or dime back."

PROJECTION: Third/Fourth Round
